Some of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident pertain to head and neck injury. While some victims may experience minor symptoms, others may experience serious, long lasting or worsening problems related to a traumatic brain injury TBI or whiplash.
If you are involved in a car or truck accident, seeking the immediate help of a physician is advisable to rule out serious issues. That said, despite our best efforts, sometimes problems may go undetected initially only to become a major or life threatening issue after the passage of time.
If you notice a change in your condition, it may be a sign of a serious head or neck injury, such as a blood clot in the brain, severe TBI, or damage to the vertebrae in the neck area. It is important to be attuned to changes in your or your loved one’s behavior or abilities to rule out a more serious injury following an injury accident.
Victims of TBI’s do eventually recover in many cases, however there may be lifelong complications and, in these circumstances, victims may require extensive medical care stretching over long periods of time. The commitment to care and the financial impact of a serious injury can take a major toll on victims and families.
