Even seemingly minor blows to the head can be responsible for serious internal injuries to the brain. Unfortunately, despite the potential severity of these injuries, many victims of head trauma have no visible injuries to alert them to the possibility of a serious, underlying brain injury. For many, the symptoms of a brain injury may go unnoticed until hours or days later, only after the injury has worsened and become more complicated.

If you have been involved in an accident that affected your head or neck, don’t wait to seek medical attention. Delays in identifying and treating a brain injury can have a serious impact on your long-term wellbeing, and it’s not worth taking risks with your health. To be safe, you should see your doctor or go to the emergency immediately after you’ve been hurt. Keep in mind that:

  • Treatment for brain injuries is most effective in the hours and days after the injury.
  • Seeking medical attention now helps to prevent further injury.
  • Seeking immediate medical attention helps to document your injury for insurance purposes.
