Car accidents can be extremely traumatic events. In addition to being fatal, they can also lead to spine problems, whiplash and knee issues. One common complication you should never overlook following a motor vehicle accident is a traumatic brain injury. 

The importance of paying attention to how you feel

It is normal to feel shocked or perhaps even angry immediately following an auto accident.

However, if you cannot remember the seconds or minutes immediately after your accident, then you may have blacked out. And blacking out is worrisome, as it could be a sign you suffered a TBI.

Weeks after the accident

In some situations, you may feel just fine after an accident and do not feel the need to head to the ER or see a doctor.

However, days or even weeks later you may experience sudden crying without reason,  emotional problems, like mood swings, or trouble concentrating. These can be indications you suffered a brain injury without knowing so.

T-bone collisions

In other situations, such as injuries caused by a T-bone collision, you or your physician may only have initial concerns about a potential neck injury.

ER physicians, for example, often ask patients if they lost consciousness and, if they say no, do not suspect a TBI. Unfortunately, the residual impairment with T-bone accidents is often an injury to the brain.

The genesis of a TBI include the following:

  • Dazed or confused
  • Headache
  • Foggy thinking
  • Searching for words
  • Changes in mood

If you experience any of these signs in any degree, notifying your physician is crucial to making sure you receive the proper care and mitigate any long-term irreparable brain damage.
