Depending on the extent of the force, various levels of brain injuries can result from a car accident, slip-and-fall or other type of accident. While some people may only suffer a mild concussion and fully recover, others may endure a traumatic brain injury with permanent damage. A victim may suffer from:

  • Short- or long-term memory loss
  • Headaches or other types of head pain
  • Personality changes or mood swings
  • Speech impairments (slurred speech, stuttering, stammering)
  • Loss of motor skills

Closed Head Injuries

Even if there are no visible head injuries, a victim of a car accident may be suffering from a concussion or closed head injury. This is why it is so important to be evaluated by medical professionals after a car accident. Doctors know what types of symptoms may appear after a closed head injury.

Typically, the effects of a concussion or a contusion are both immediate and long-term. Early intervention and rehabilitation can make a lifelong difference in a victim's degree of recovery of normal functions.
