Motor vehicle accidents often lead to serious head injuries such as concussions. Concussions are form of traumatic brain injuries, and any head injury should be taken seriously and treated accordingly.
The events surrounding a car accident in New York and the nature of the crash will influence whether a person sustains a concussion and how serious the concussion will be for the person. Severity determines the type and duration of treatment that an accident victim will need to undergo.
During a vehicle collision, a person’s head is vulnerable to injury from objects inside the car, the air bag, and the ground if the collision results in a rollover or passenger ejection. Some accident victims understand that they have head injuries right away, while others do not know for a while after the collision. Concussions do not always occur along with visible injuries to a person’s head.
Some of the signs of a concussion from a car accident, which might occur immediately or with time, include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Vomiting, nausea
- Visual oddities, like seeing spots or stars
- Blurred vision
- Ringing or other noises in the ears
- Fatigue, sleeplessness
- Mood or behavior changes
- Ongoing headaches
Understanding these symptoms can help a person obtain necessary medical care for a concussion. After a car accident in New York, victims need to stay self-aware and assume that any abnormal health issues could be linked to the accident. Prompt medical attention is important for car accident injuries, particularly injuries as serious as traumatic brain injuries. Delays in medical care can have lasting consequences to a person’s health.
