Look for: If your dad lost consciousness or has some memory blanks for the accident sequence, he may have experienced a concussion, but this would clear rapidly. Sometimes these injuries can cause chronic headache, and very rarely, associated with some memory and organizational challenges. Dizziness can be also associated however, if actions normal both emotionally and cognitively, do not worry.
