Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion After an Accident

Video Transcription:
One of the most common undiagnosed conditions after an accident is a concussion. It doesn't matter if it's a fall, a cycling accident or a car crash. Too many people are willing to overlook some of the common signs and symptoms of a concussion. While most people will recover within the first year of having a concussion, some won't and this is why it's important to detect it early.

Common Signs and Symptoms of a Concussion

  • Slurred speech or nausea and vomiting
  • A headache
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Blurred vision or sensitivity to light or noise
  • Personality changes, changes in your behavior
  • Memory loss

Remember it's not necessary for someone to be knocked unconscious in order to have a concussion. So even if there is just one of these symptoms, it's important to have it evaluated by a doctor.
