Do Not Ignore The Signs Of A Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries may not seem serious at first. Bleeding in the brain or a large blood clot that puts pressure on your brain can happen over time. This is why it is so important to always seek medical care as soon as possible after an accident, even if you do not experience symptoms immediately.
After an accident, pay attention for possible signs of a brain injury, including:
- Headache or migraine
- Blurry vision or a change to any of the other senses
- Fatigue or any other change to sleeping habits
- Confusion, dizziness or loss of balance
- Nausea or vomiting
- Trouble with memory or concentration
- Loss of consciousness
- Limb paralysis, difficulties with hands, arms or legs
