Recognize a traumatic brain injury before it's too late

Traumatic brain injury is a serious issue that can impact quality of life or even result in loss of life if it is not treated swiftly enough. According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 30 percent of traumatic brain injuries result from automobile accidents. After a minor fender-bender it can be tempting to walk away thinking you only sustained a minor bump to your head, perhaps against the steering wheel or seat. However, due to the unpredictable nature of traumatic brain injuries, it is best to take advantage of Michigan's no-fault insurance laws to seek the best possible diagnosis, treatment and preventative care.

One of the most common traumatic brain injuries is a concussion, which can lead to much more severe complications. Concussion happens when an impact to the skull makes the head and brain move quickly enough for the brain to impact the side of the skull. The CDC provides a list of symptoms to watch for when you suspect a concussion; these symptoms fall into signs that affect your body, emotions, cognition, and sleep.

If, after a blow to the head, you find you have difficulty remembering things, sluggish thoughts, inability to form concrete thoughts and poor information retention, these may be warning signs of a concussion. Other symptoms that may pair with these cognitive issues include wavering vision, headaches, vertigo, balance issues, nausea, light and noise sensitivity, fatigue, excessive sleeping, difficulty sleeping and unexpected or irregular mood shifts. These symptoms are warning signs that you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury.
