Video Summary

  • If you suspect a family member has a brain injury or concussion after an accident, take it seriously even if there are no visible injuries.
  • Symptoms of brain injury or concussion can include difficulty speaking, attention problems, emotional issues, fatigue, sleep difficulties, hearing problems, and vision issues.
  • You do not need to hit your head or lose consciousness to have a concussion or brain injury; the force or shaking of the head during an accident can cause it.
  • Download the brain injury checklist from this website to identify potential symptoms and signs.
  • Seek immediate medical attention from a concussion specialist or neurologist to document the condition and get proper evaluation and treatment before symptoms worsen.
