Many people report seeing stars after being injured in a car accident. This is especially common when the airbag deploys. Seeing stars or any other type of visual disturbance is suggestive of a concussion or what is often referred to now as a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI).
These MTBIs are quite common in car accidents and may also cause other symptoms, including but not limited to dizziness, balance problems, nausea, amnesia, and change in appetite. Be sure to mention any and all of these symptoms to your healthcare provider so any potential MTBI can be diagnosed and treated properly.
