Dizziness or vertigo 

Dizziness or Vertigo

Dizziness or vertigo is a complaint that has been very documented as a finding common after car accidents. One source stated that 15% of car accident victims will experience dizziness and 4% will have associated ringing in the ears. This is especially true in the case of rear impact collisions.

Vertigo is a medical term to describe the feeling of spinning, whirling, or motion either of yourself or your surroundings. This is the same feeling you might have after getting off a merry-go-round or spinning in place. Although diseases of the organs of the inner ear can cause vertigo, it may also be a result of an injury.

Dizziness may be just mildly annoying or symptomatic of something possibly life threatening. Often after an auto accident injury people experience this as a symptom of the injury sustained.

When you might feel dizziness:

    • Fainting or near fainting such as “at the sight of blood”
    • Fainting or near fainting from standing up too quickly or standing still too long
    • Weakness during a flu, cold, or other illness
    • Seasickness or motion sickness
    • Queasiness, nausea, or vomiting
    • Confused thinking
    • Fatigue, tiredness, or daytime sleepiness
    • Clumsy hands or stumbling walking
