It's no surprise that car crash numbers go up during the summer when more motorists are on the roads. Since some of the most frequent outcomes of car crashes are traumatic brain injuries, Texas motorists should understand the nature of these conditions. It turns out that TBIs are frequently subject to misdiagnoses and delayed diagnoses.
A mild traumatic brain injury is called a concussion, and this can be incurred through any blow or jolt to the head. The symptoms range from loss of cognitive function to exaggerated mood swings to slurred speech. They may appear minutes after the crash or perhaps two or three days later. Medical experts recommend that crash victims get examined right away to reduce the chances of a false diagnosis.
