Airbags Deployed and Diagnosed With Concussion. What Should I Do Next?

Question: Another driver turned left in front of me. I slammed into him and my airbags deployed. I was diagnosed with a concussion. What type of treatment do you recommend?

Answer: A concussion is not uncommon when a car’s airbags deploy. You don’t need to lose consciousness to suffer a concussion. Common symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Feeling “foggy”
  • Forgetfulness
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea
  • Inability to find the right word
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Mood changes. Uncharacteristic crying.

If you suffer any of these symptoms after a car accident, it’s critical that you report the symptoms to a doctor as soon as possible, and that the doctor includes the symptoms in your medical records. If those symptoms are memorialized in the medical records soon after an accident, it will provide the ammunition your attorney needs to get you maximum value for the injuries you suffered.

Depending on the facts of your case, we may refer you to a neurologist, who will order a brain MRI. You may also need to see an audiologist.
