Hurt in an Orange County Car Crash: Know the Symptoms of Brain Injury

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on November 8, 2010

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.

The symptoms of brain injury vary and depend on the part of the brain that is injured. The most common symptoms of brain injury include:

  • Anxiety, nervousness
  • Behavioral changes
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating or thinking
  • Difficulty finding words or understanding the speech of others
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Lack of coordination
  • Loss of balance; difficulty walking or sitting
  • Lightheadedness
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Loss of memory
  • Muscle stiffness and/or spasms
  • Seizures
  • Sleep problems
  • Slurred and/or slowed speech
  • Tingling, numbness, pain, or other sensations
  • Sense of spinning (vertigo)
  • Weakness

If you experience any of these symptoms in the weeks following a car accident, see your doctor.
