    How to avoid a head injury and how to find the best law firm in West Somerset

    A head injury can be very serious, or even fatal, so it is always important that you avoid any damage to your head. Head injuries can also get worse as time goes on, and a head injury which did not originally seem particularly dangerous can later cause a bleed on the brain which could be fatal. If you have sustained a head injury then you should go to a doctor as soon as you can to get it checked over and ensure that it is nothing too serious. Here are some tips for avoiding this kind of injury in the first place.

    • Be careful. The simplest way to avoid a head injury is simply to be careful in everything you do, don’t be reckless and attempt to avoid any activity which could lead to a head injury or a broken bone. There is a difference between being adventurous and being reckless and you should walk this line carefully.
    • Wear protective equipment. If you are taking part in sports or activities where there is safety equipment provided, wear it. Helmets are worn for a reason in many sports, and if you don’t wear one you seriously risk having a head injury.
    • Wear a seatbelt. Although whiplash is common in car accidents, and often caused by wearing a seatbelt, a serious head injury is much more likely if you are not wearing a seatbelt, and this can lead to death. Never start your ignition before your seatbelt is on.
    • Protect your head. If you are in an accident, or have a fall, you should think about your head before anything else, and pull your head into your body, protecting it with your arms if you can. It is far better to break an arm than to risk dying from a head injury.
