    Common head injury questions answered


    Anyone suffering from a head injury is likely to have some head injury questions they need answers to. At the time, your concern will be how serious the head injury is, and whether you need to get medical help. As a rule of thumb, any injury that causes loss of consciousness should always lead to medical attention being sought to ensure no serious injuries have been caused.

    Another common question relates to what other symptoms can be expected. For example, headaches and dizziness are very common, but being sick isn’t. You might feel nauseous after having a head injury, but this should be mild. If you are sick, or you have a headache that gets progressively worse, you should seek medical treatment without delay.

    Where can you get answers to head injury questions?

    It’s a good idea to make sure you only seek answers from reputable sources. For example, the NHS website is ideal, as the content is written by professionals and is very easy to understand and digest too. Symptoms are usually provided in bullet-point form, so you can scan the list to see if you can identify the symptoms associated with your own head injury (or that of someone close to you).

    If you are recovering from a head injury caused in an accident someone else might have been responsible for, regardless of how it happened, you may also want further advice of a different kind. Cases like this can lead to compensation being paid if there is evidence that negligence was to blame.

    Where can you get answers to questions about compensation?

    No doubt you have questions about your chances of claiming compensation, just as you’ve had head injury questions too. So, it’s good to know you are in the right place to get the answers you need. Simply call Accident Advice Helpline to speak with someone who can help you. There are two numbers you can do this on – call 0800 689 0500 free if you have access to a landline and can call from there. Alternatively, try 0333 500 0993 from any mobile phone.
