Head & Brain Injuries

When a Connecticut car accident occurs, passengers may be injured. An unfortunate yet common injury that you might suffer in a car crash is a head injury. Head injuries can range in severity, but rest assured that all head injuries should be examined by a medical professional and you should seek treatment to avoid long term issues. If you find yourself in this situation, learn more about common head and brain injuries in car crashes and what you can do to get help if you have sustained such an injury.

Mild Head Injuries

While any head injury is concern for alarm, there is a range in severity for these types of injuries. Mild head injuries in car accidents are usually issues such as contusions or concussions. You may face symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision, swelling, fatigue, irritability, nausea, and difficulty sleeping if you have sustained a concussion in a car crash.

While concussions are oftentimes considered “mild” head injuries, they can have serious consequences. This might particularly be the case if you sustain multiple concussions. You might face post-concussive syndrome, which may permanently impact your memory, your ability to concentrate, your mood, and more.

If you hit your head in a car accident, you should see a doctor as soon as possible to determine the extent of your injury.

Moderate to Severe Head Injuries

A head injury can be more severe if you face additional symptoms to those listed above. This might include:

  • Severe headaches that persist after the accident.
  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Prolonged nausea after the accident.
  • Seizures.
  • Slurred speech.
  • Memory loss.
  • Lack of cognitive abilities.

These symptoms could point to something more serious going on. They might point to a serious issue such as a skull fracture, diffuse axonal injuries or hemorrhages within the brain. Trauma to the head could also result in blood clots which could be life-threatening.

Again, it is imperative to seek medical attention if you hurt your head in a car accident. Even if you think that you are ok, you should seek medical help.


When you go to a doctor with a suspected head injury, they should be able to diagnose the issue. The doctor may run tests such as blood tests, x-rays, EEGs, MRIs, CAT scans, and more to determine the injury that you have sustained. Make sure to tell the doctor that you were in a car accident and explain what happened. List any symptoms that you have, whether they are related to your head or another part of your body. With this information, the doctor should be able to make a proper diagnosis and establish a course of action for your recovery.
