I think my child has a concussion after an accident, What should I do?

If you were in an accident with your child in the car, it may have caused the child to suffer a concussion. Concussions occur when there is a blow, bump, or jolt to the head that results in the jerking of the brain. This injury can disrupt the brains’ normal physiology and may affect mental stamina and brain function. There may be a short loss of consciousness, but most of the time it can be difficult to tell whether your child is suffering from a concussion.

Symptoms of a Concussion

The best way to determine whether your child has a concussion is by the physical symptoms involved. Some of the most common physical symptoms are headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and sensitivity to light and noise. There may also be several other less obvious symptoms such as emotional problems like sadness, irritability, and nervousness. Head injuries in children can be nerve-wracking, and seeing a professional should never be out of the question.

How to Treat a Concussion

In many cases, it can take a few hours or days for some of the symptoms of a concussion to appear but it is important to monitor your child for the first 24 to 48 hours for signs of these symptoms and if they become worse. If you have any indication that your child may have a concussion it is important to see a physician right away.

One of the only ways to treat a concussion is to let your child rest and keep them from participating in any strenuous activates what could cause them further injury. Let them sleep in a dark and quite room and give them an ice pack to use on their head and neck to help alleviate some of the pain. If they need a pain killer, use acetaminophen only.

If you have any other questions or concerns about what to do if your child has suffered a concussion after a car accident, please do not hesitate to contact us to find out how we can help you file a claim!
