After a car accident, watch for these symptoms

Here's a scenario: you are in a car accident (maybe just a fender bender), but you don't feel like you have any serious injuries, so you decide not to go to the hospital. But one week later, you notice that you have been getting headaches and aren't feeling like your normal self.

While it may seem unlikely, even in minor car accidents it is possible to sustain a concussion or severe brain injury. A small fender bender can cause more physical damage to your body than you would think was possible.

A head injury is one of the most common types of injuries resulting from a car accident. The signs of a concussion or severe brain injury following a car accident can sometimes be quite understated, so it can be useful to know what symptoms to look for.

Here are some common symptoms of a head injury:

· Persistent headaches

· Neck pain

· Vomiting or nausea caused by dizziness

· Having a hard time concentrating

· Being unusually tired or "out of it"

· Sudden changes in your vision

If you are exhibiting any of the symptoms listed above following a car accident, go to the doctor immediately. No matter how minor the head injury may be, it is always best to seek a doctor's treatment and advice.

Now this information is not to scare an individual who has recently been in a car accident but only to inform. If you have been in a car accident and are not feeling like yourself, it is in your best interest to know what the warning signs are for a brain injury and to seek the advice and help of professionals.
