    Has your head injury caused dizziness?

    Head injuries can cause a wide range of symptoms. Not everyone gets the same symptoms, and those they do experience can vary in severity too. It’s not unusual if your head injury caused dizziness, for example, as this is one of the more common things that can be experienced.

    Mild dizziness is commonly experienced in cases where a minor head injury has occurred. If someone has suffered concussion (sometimes in itself a symptom of a traumatic brain injury), there is a chance this dizziness may be more severe. It may also last longer than a day or two. It could last for several weeks before going away completely.

    If a head injury caused dizziness, what should you do?

    Head injuries can be serious. While most are anything but, it always pays dividends to ensure you get checked out soon afterwards. If you lost consciousness after a head injury, you should always get medical attention. If you only suffered a mild bump to the head and you feel dizzy, you may not require any medical aid. However, if you start feeling worse or the problem does not go away, a visit to your GP would be a good idea.

    Making sure someone stays with you (or you stay with someone who has had a bump to the head) is essential for a day or so afterwards. This enables the injured person to be watched in case they get worse and cannot call for help.

    Could you claim anything for your head injury?

    We know injuries like this can happen for all kinds of reasons. But negligence is the crucial factor here. You need to make sure you can prove another party was negligent if you are going to succeed in making a compensation claim.
