More than 289,000 people a year sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) after being involved in a car crash. When the brain is injured, there may be no symptom, but this does not mean that there is no brain injury. We’ve all heard stories of people who get out of the car, help save other victims and then collapse into a coma. This is because brain injury symptoms may not develop until the brain swells hours or even days the accident. For this reason, all California car crash victims should be seen by a medical professional and they should know the symptoms of traumatic brain injury.
