What are Signs and Symptoms of a Serious Head Injury?
When physical trauma impacts the head, it can easily result in injuries to the brain. As our center or function, feelings, and thoughts, this can have a huge impact on the person’s daily life. If a person is affected by a condition such as internal hemorrhaging, the extent of damage may not be easy to see with the eye. This makes it extremely important to closely monitor anyone who is involved in an auto accident or other situation that may have cause a head injury.
Certain symptoms could be a sign of internal damage, including:
- Confusion or disorientation;
- Slurred speech;
- Loss of consciousness, or blacking out;
- Nausea or vomiting;
- Amnesia, involving either short or long-term memory; and
- Change in sleep pattern.
Symptoms may be delayed in manifesting, so even if it has been weeks since the injury, a physician should be consulted immediately. If injury has been sustained through another person’s negligence, you may be able to seek compensation for the situation. If the victim has suffered serious head trauma, you may be facing rising medical costs for treatment. Serious brain injuries can lead to extensive costs for treatment such as rehabilitation, medication, therapy, or medical equipment for disabilities. You should not have to shoulder these costs because of someone else’s negligence.
How are Serious Head Injuries Sustained?
Any type of trauma to the head can cause brain injuries, usually in the form of impact with another object. A head injury can occur in a wide range of ways, but some of the more commons scenarios for serious head injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Slipping and falling;
- Auto accidents, including T-bone collisions, head-on impact, and vehicle rollovers;
- Sports injuries;
- Assault; and
- Workplace accidents.
These types of incidents can cause a concussion or other types of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Even if the injured party does not seem to immediately need medical attention, the injury may cause internal damage that may take days to manifest. Brain trauma could affect daily functions and result in permanent damage, making it important to seek medical attention as soon as symptoms manifest.
