Closed head injuries can happen in a all kinds of circumstances. In a car accident, head trauma can happen during a rear-end collision when the driver who is struck from behind strikes her head on the steering wheel. Side impact or T-bone accidents can exert tremendous lateral force to the driver or passenger's body forcing their heads to strike the interior side portion of their vehicle. Even a strong whiplash in which the driver's head is thrown forward and then snaps back against the head-rest can cause a head injury. There are numerous other mechanisms that can lead to a concussion or traumatic brain injury in the context of a traffic crash. Head injuries can range from minor concussions to life threatening brain bleeds or swelling that require immediate medical intervention. Mild concussions sometimes can go undiagnosed and untreated by the emergency room physicians. Symptoms may start to show up hours or days later. Confusion, fatigue, memory issues, headaches, nausea, balance issues and dizziness can all be signs of a head injury. If you have sustained a head injury during a traffic accident, it is important to get proper medical diagnosis and treatment.
