Concussions can occur with any type of trauma to the head or neck. In the case of an auto accident, the occupants of the vehicle can be shaken depending on how they are struck in their vehicle. With seat belts, the passengers body will be restrained while the head and neck continue moving. This can cause the brain to move within the skull causing many symptoms.
Sometimes people will experience symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, mood changes, balance problems, dizziness and concentration problems. Usually when people are examined at a hospital after a accident, a CT scan is the preferred test to detect TBI (traumatic brain injury). Many times people are not treated if no serious findings are present. They are told that the symptoms will go away with time.
