GENERAL BRAIN AND HEAD INJURY FAQs
While every injury is different, the most common injuries after a car accident are:
Concussions: caused by blows to the head that cause the brain to strike in inside of the skull, causes bruising to the brain and potentially lasting headaches and trouble sleeping
Diffuse axonal injuries: caused by a sudden rotation twisting the brain structure, resulting in tearing that can cause lasting damage to the nervous system
Piercing wounds: caused by debris inside the car or in the environment impacting the skull and penetrating the brain, they pose the risk of massive bleeding and trauma
Common Head Injuries After A Car Accident
Head injuries can range in severity depending on what form they come in, but they all pose a danger and can cause long-term health problems. Traumatic brain injuries are classified as either mild when they don’t result in a loss of consciousness or severe when they result in loss of consciousness, memory loss, or permanent brain damage. They are also two types of traumatic brain injury: closed traumatic brain injuries where the skull remains intact, and open traumatic brain injuries where the skull is pierced.
Head Injury Symptoms Following A Car Crash
Head injuries can be very dangerous because the symptoms aren’t always apparent. Usually, symptoms include:
- Memory loss
- Slurred speech
You should immediately get medical attention after a car accident, even if you aren’t experiencing any head injury symptoms. Many types of injuries can take days or even weeks to fully appear. In getting medical care early, you can improve your health outcomes and create a hard record that ties your injuries directly to the time of the crash.

The costs associated with long term medical care can be crushing. Hospital bills and therapy costs can add up quickly, and can be impossible to contend with if your injuries keep you out of work. That’s why personal injury laws exist to ease the burden caused by life-altering injuries and get you the compensation you need to get your life back on track. However, negligent drivers and insurance companies will do all they can to limit your payouts.
