Head injuries are one of the most serious complications from an automobile accident. These injuries often involve direct trauma to the brain. This type of injury may lead to short- and long-term symptoms and health risks.
Concussions often result from trauma suffered in car accidents. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury from a violent blow to the head. Effects can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance, depression, vision, and coordination, as well as other symptoms. Physical, cognitive, and psychological symptoms can result from concussion. Repeated concussions or severe cases can cause cumulative brain damage, long-term disability, and sometimes death.
