There are many types of injuries that can result from a Central Florida car accident, including a concussion. This type of injury is also referred to as head trauma or brain injury.
Concussions affect millions of people every year and car accidents are often to blame. Most concussions will heal themselves with little complication, but some cases can become serious. It is important to recognize the signs of concussion so that you know when to seek medical attention.
Some of the symptoms of a concussion include headache, dizziness, vomiting, nausea, lack of coordination, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, seizures, confusion and loss of consciousness. There are warning signs that indicate a more serious situation, which include persistent headache, vomiting or extreme weakness. Any time you suspect a concussion, you should talk with your doctor who will be able to monitor you or your family member.
