Signs and Symptoms of Brain Injuries
The types of brain injury symptoms stemming from a car accident hinges on the severity of the impact, location and several other factors. Brain injuries alter brain functionality, resulting in cognitive, emotional and even physical symptoms. Those suffering from brain injuries exhibit symptoms ranging from seizures to muscle spasms, sensitivity to light, impaired speech, headaches, diminished sense of smell/taste and balance issues
If you experience memory loss, find it difficult to communicate, square your attention on a particular task or can no longer process information as quickly as you did prior to the crash, your accident likely caused brain damage. Mood swings, heightened anxiety, depression and acting impulsively are common emotional symptoms of brain damage induced by an auto accident. It might take some time for these symptoms to manifest so it is in your interest to visit with a doctor as quickly as possible for a prompt evaluation after the accident. The doctor might find damage you are unaware of, note it in your medical report and pave the way to justice.
