Hit and Run Collisions

images-1-1Injuries to the head and brain are commonly seen in car accidents and are among the most serious injuries that can occur.  Unlike a broken bone or a muscle sprain, these injuries do not typically have a clear course of recovery and can be extremely complicated to treat, even under expert medical care.

Causes and Symptoms of Head Injuries

A traumatic brain injury, otherwise known as a TBI, is a particularly severe head injury. The causes of these vary, but they may be the result of a fall, motor vehicle accident, or an attack.  A TBI may be experienced in a car accident when a person’s head collides with the steering wheel or dash inside their vehicle during the impact of the crash.  The most common symptom of a TBI is a headache experienced shortly after the trauma.  Other symptoms include dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, light sensitivity and inability to focus.  The symptoms of a TBI may not be readily apparent for several days.  Symptoms can seem minimal at first and then become progressively worse over the course of days or weeks if left untreated.
