You may think it’s only a minor fender-bender,
and not realize that your brain has been injured.

The brain is a highly specialized and complex organ. The brain is divided into two hemispheres and each hemisphere is divided into additional parts called the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, the temporal lobe and the cerebellum. Each lobe has identifiable functions, but the parts of the brain are interconnected. Therefore, damage to one part of the brain may affect the performance of another part of the brain. Even slight damage to the brain can have extreme consequences.

The brain can be damaged in a variety  of ways, and depending on the areas damaged and the severity of the damage, it can prove relatively harmless to fatal.

Serious cases of brain injury, the result can be permanent disability

Here are several symptoms you should be aware of that might indicate a brain injury. Be sure to tell your doctor if you are experiencing any of these after a car accident:
