Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)  is more common than you might think, for victims of car accidents. Hitting your head against the car window or steering wheel can cause a TBI, but even if you don’t hit your head, the sudden stop of an impact can jar your brain and cause damage.
Some of the signs of a TBI are:
• Confusion
• Amnesia
• Difficulty concentrating
• Dizziness
• Fainting
• Fatigue
• Anxiety
• Nausea
• Slurred speech
• Blurred vision
• Headaches

These symptoms may be immediate or can be delayed for several days or weeks. Beware, do not ignore this. If you notice any of these problems, seek medical attention.
