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:
• Difficulty concentrating
• Slurred speech
• Blurred vision
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.
