Headaches & Brain Injuries after an Auto Accident

Posted on June 28, 2017

A recurring or a constant headache is one of the biggest concerns following a severe auto accident. These post-traumatic headaches are typically caused by minor head injuries or whiplash. No matter how insignificant your injuries may seem following a car wreck, it’s essential to your health and your accident claim to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your headaches could be a warning sign of something more severe such as a traumatic brain injury.

Auto accidents are among the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries, and persistent headaches are just one of the major indicators. A headache on its own may not be something to worry about initially, but when it’s accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sleepiness, it’s time to see a neurologist. Other signs of traumatic brain injuries to watch for include:

  • Amnesia
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty thinking and communicating
  • Ringing ears
  • Sudden behavioral changes such as aggression, apathy and impulsivity
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Seizures
  • Trouble balancing
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Light/sound sensitivity
  • Slurred speech

Brain injuries from motor vehicle crashes are common, especially in motorcycle accidents. They can leave you with a permanent disability and mounting medical bills, which is why it’s also vital to speak with one of our Boca Raton attorneys as soon as possible. The lifelong implications of this form of catastrophic injury often involve a significant loss of quality of life and an inability to work.
