When a person is involved in an accident, it can result in different injuries that can range from moderate to severe. One of the most vulnerable parts of the body is the head, and when it is hit with the force with which an accident occurs typically, the person can suffer a traumatic brain injury.

These types of injuries can have side effects immediately after the incident or even months later. For example, a concussion can affect the way the brain perceives, processes, and stores information. This, in turn, can cause emotional alterations in the person due to the shock not only of the accident but also because of the feeling that there is something that does not work as before.

People with traumatic brain injuries may suffer from depression, irritability, isolation, anger, high levels of anxiety, and mood swings. That is why people tend to think that the personality of the individual changed. However, it is not that the personality changes. Instead, it is a set of symptoms that the patient finds very difficult to manage. These symptoms can go away with time if correct treatment is given and if they are taken care of immediately.

It is important to remember that some accident victims can also have post-traumatic stress disorder. In these cases, the person is fearful of driving again or leaving home, may present moderate anxiety or panic attacks, disruptive memories and images of the accident, depression, anger, nightmares and/or sleep problems. All this can cause the person to behave differently, but it does not mean that his or her personality has changed.

If you or a loved one is involved in a head injury accident, getting medical attention right away is essential. Do all the necessary tests to rule out any significant damage and follow up on your symptoms and emotional state. Only in cases of severe injuries can some bodily functions be lost. According to statistics, more than 80% of accident victims have emotional disturbances. But as we mentioned above, many of these can disappear with the recommended treatment.
