What to do About Brain Injuries
After a car crash, a bad fall, or other accident, you may feel as if you’ve walked away unhurt. Perhaps you have a few cuts and bruises, but that’s all.
But it’s important to have someone check you over, preferably right after the accident happens, just in case. They will be able to tell you if you could have a brain injury.
If you don’t see a medical professional straight away, keep an eye on yourself for a few days following the accident. Even if you don’t have a lump or bump, your brain might have been jostled in the accident and suffered hidden trauma.
Keep an eye out for:
- Feeling or being sick
- Feeling dizzy
- Passing out
- Seeing stars or other visual disturbances
- Any numbness in different body parts
These could mean that your brain has swollen, is bruised or is bleeding. See someone at an A & E as soon as possible if you notice this or any other unusual symptoms.Open Claim Calculator
Because these symptoms are very similar to what happens when you drink alcohol, it is better not to drink much for a few days following your accident. It probably won’t make any hidden brain injury worse, but it might mask symptoms, meaning you don’t notice and take action as quickly as you might do.
