Head Trauma from Car Crash – Overview
Many people suffer headaches after car accidents. Some are due to stress or general soreness after an impact. Many, however, are signs of something more serious. Even a mild headache can be a symptom of a concussion or a more severe head injury.
Not all head or brain injuries are visible and some occur without direct impact to the head. The only way to know what you are dealing with for sure is to have a doctor evaluate you. For this reason, we recommend that everyone seek medical care immediately following an accident. Not only does this offer you the best chance at a quick and full recovery, it also provides the necessary documentation of your injuries if you decide to file a claim for compensation against the at-fault driver later.

What Are the Symptoms of Head Trauma?
In some cases, headaches are the only noticeable symptom of a concussion or other brain injury after an accident. The other signs of a concussion are often more difficult to spot, especially if you are the one experiencing them. They might include:
- Slowed reaction time
- Trouble concentrating
- Confusion or problems with comprehension
- Inability to remember the accident
- Feeling disoriented
- Dizziness or feeling lightheaded
- Sensitivity to light and noise
