Types of Brain Injuries from Car Accidents

There are various types of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that can arise from car accidents. These types of injuries occur when the head or body experiences a violent blow. 

Types of TBIs include:

  • Concussions: A concussion can be caused by a direct impact, forceful jolts, or violent head shakes due to a car crash’s impact.
  • Contusions: A contusion refers to a bruise. It refers to when a bruise forms on the brain and usually accompanies other injuries such as a concussion.
  • Diffuse Axonal Injuries: Known as DAI, these injuries occur when the brain rotates and moves around inside the skull due to a violent strike, leading to the nerve fibers, or "axons," being sheared or torn. This serious condition can result in prolonged brain damage or coma.
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injuries: These injuries happen when a strong blow causes the brain to hit the opposite side of the skull, creating two injury sites where the initial impact occurred and where the brain struck the skull's interior.
  • Penetrating Injuries: This type of injury happens when an external object, like car crash debris, breaks through the skull and enters the brain. These injuries are among the most critical.

How Long After a Car Accident Can Head Injuries Appear?

TBI injuries have a range of symptoms, with some manifesting immediately after the event, while others may not become apparent until days or weeks later. Therefore, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention at the site of the accident or as soon as possible afterward. 

Even if you feel seemingly normal or unaffected, underlying issues could still be present, and early intervention can be key to preventing more serious long-term consequences. 

Common TBI Symptoms

While various types of brain injuries may have different symptoms, a majority of them may overlap. Symptoms of brain injury can be physical or cognitive. It is crucial to vigilantly monitor for both physical and cognitive symptoms in the aftermath of a car accident.

Symptoms include but are not limited to:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Sensory problems
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Memory problems
  • Mood swings
  • Slurred speech
  • Seizures
  • Clear fluids from nose or ears

Recognizing these signs early is vital. If you observe any of these symptoms, it's imperative to seek immediate medical attention to prevent further complications.
