symptoms of traumatic brain injury

Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) do not always show up immediately after the accident. The physical and psychological damage can take days or even weeks to appear. Symptoms may include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Memory problems
  • Mood changes
  • Seizures
  • Confusion

The above symptoms are just a few of the many signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury. A detailed list of symptoms can be found on the Mayo Clinic website.

One of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents. TBI’s are caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head, which often happens when you’re in a car accident. If you’ve been injured in an accident and believe you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should seek medical attention. A traumatic brain injury is not an injury to be taken lightly and should be treated as soon as possible by a medical professional.
