Suffering headache days after an Ohio collision?

The day the other driver ran a red light and t-boned your vehicle at an intersection is a day you'd likely want to forget. Unfortunately, you may have physical, emotional or financial damages to remind you of the collision every day. Even if rescuers immediately transported you to a nearby hospital for treatment in the immediate aftermath of the crash, it's important to closely monitor your condition in the days and weeks that follow as well.

Not every collision injury is apparent right away. This is why it's a good idea to return to the hospital and report your symptoms to your primary care physician if you feel discomfort or pain of any sort during recovery. It's also important that the medical team who attends to you knows that you were recently involved in a motor vehicle collision. Certain symptoms, no matter when they arise, can lead to potential traumatic brain injury (TBI) if they are not taken care of quickly.

You should be getting better, not worse

Depending on how severe your injuries from the collision were, you might experience a lot of discomfort during recovery. However, in most cases, you should start to feel slightly better each passing day. If you don't, it's reason enough to discuss it with your medical team. The following list includes red flags that suggest you may have a TBI:

  • Facial or neck pain
  • Slurred speech or difficulty with walking
  • Rapid mood swings
  • Sleep-related problems such as chronic fatigue, insomnia or inability to stay awake

There are many other symptoms that are especially concerning if you've recently been involved in a car accident. Your medical team knows exactly which tests to perform to rule out TBI.

If you receive a TBI diagnosis

TBIs range from mild to life-threatening. Your medical team can help you determine what type of care and treatment you need to achieve as full a recovery as possible if you receive a TBI diagnosis.

It takes time to recover from a brain injury, and some TBIs have permanent consequences. If another person's negligence caused your injury, Ohio law allows you to seek financial recovery for your losses in court.
