Have you suffered a head injury in a car crash or after an accident at work? The aftermath of this type of injury can be serious, although you may be lucky enough to escape with some bruises or a mild concussion. Head injuries can often lead to the development of a range of symptoms, from trouble sleeping to fatigue, and if you notice any of these symptoms in the days or weeks after your accident, you should seek medical attention.
A head injury and fatigue may be nothing, or it could be a symptom of a more serious head trauma such as a brain injury. Seeing your GP for a head injury examination is the best way to put your mind at rest if you’re experiencing unusual symptoms.
Is head injury and fatigue common?
There are a few symptoms that are fairly common after suffering a head injury. Head injury and fatigue are common, and dizziness or vertigo is also frequently experienced. Whilst these symptoms don’t appear to be serious, they can impact your life, making you unable to go to work or live your life to the full. So if you’re suffering from these symptoms after an accident that was caused by somebody else, what can you do?
You could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could make a claim for compensation. The person responsible for your accident could also be held liable for your injuries, and ordered to pay you compensation. There’s no need to worry if you were injured in an accident at work and your employer is at fault – you won’t lose your job.
