Brain injuries can result from a fall, assault, or a motor vehicle accident. Symptoms of a concussion, sometimes called a mild traumatic brain injury, can sometimes last weeks and years after the initial injury. Symptoms of a concussion include headaches, dizziness, memory problems, irritability, noise and light sensitivity, and balance problems. Loss of consciousness or amnesia at the time of the event may or may not occur. Imaging studies of the head are typically normal.
