A closed head injury is a type of personal injury that is oftentimes sustained as the result of a car or motor vehicle accident. This type of injury is referred to as TBI, or Traumatic Brain Injury. It can vary from mild to severe. The symptoms of a head injury are not always readily apparent. They can manifest themselves in the days, weeks, and months following a car accident. Symptoms can range from forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, headaches, and a decrease in motor function capabilities. In that the symptoms are more subtle a head injury caused by a car accident is hard to diagnose and is oftentimes misdiagnosed or not identified at all.

Only a brain scan is able to identify whether or not you have sustained a head injury after a car accident. Thus, if you or a loved one has been in a car accident and are experiencing cognitive difficulties, be sure to relay those to your doctor. Only with an accurate history of your problems will a doctor be able to order the brain scan necessary to diagnose a closed head injury.
