concussion and traumatic brain injury

Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are frequently overlooked and underestimated consequences of motor vehicle collisions. It’s a common misconception that simply visiting the hospital or emergency room post-accident automatically ensures evaluation for these conditions. However, this assumption can be dangerously incorrect.

The absence of a formal diagnosis means the absence of proper treatment. Unlike other injuries that manifest with visible signs such as pain, swelling, or joint stiffness, Concussions and TBIs are often referred to as “invisible” injuries. The symptoms and effects of these injuries are not readily apparent, unlike cuts, scrapes, or bruises on the skin.

Concussions, specifically, are brain injuries resulting from a blow to the head or the rapid and violent shaking of the head and body, a scenario frequently seen in individuals also affected by Whiplash Injuries.

Recognizing the signs of a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury is crucial. These may include:

– Headaches
– Memory Changes or Loss
– Dizziness
– Blurred Vision or Visual Changes
– Confusion or Difficulty Concentrating/Focusing
– Ringing in your ears
– Extreme Fatigue
– Depression

Since individuals may not always be consciously aware that their brain isn’t functioning properly, we make it a standard practice to include Concussion Screenings as part of every intake for Auto Accidents, Work Injuries, or Sports-Related Injuries. If a brain injury is suspected, we have a dedicated Medical Team ready to provide the necessary referrals to ensure you receive appropriate care.

Your well-being is our utmost concern, and we are committed to addressing these often hidden injuries with the seriousness they deserve. Don’t underestimate the potential impact of a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury—seek evaluation and care promptly.
