    Car accident claim in Central Bedfordshire

    Keep your head whilst making your personal injury car accident claim in Central Bedfordshire

    Head injuries can be life threatening and many casualties of road traffic accidents may be diagnosed with a trauma to the head or neck.  Head injuries are particularly difficult to diagnose and treat as the victim may deteriorate rapidly.

    Any injury that is sustained to the head or neck should always be investigated as soon as possible to rule out neural damage or damage to the spinal cord.  Any loss of consciousness or nausea should be reported to medical practitioners to ensure that the casualty is monitored closely, so that any changes in their condition can be responded to rapidly.

    Diagnosing head injuries

    Head injuries are usually evident at the scene of a road traffic accident. In fact, the casualty may have suffered a loss of consciousness on impact, appear disorientated or have a visible trauma to the head or neck causing lacerations and swelling.

    The paramedics who attend the scene will prioritise the casualties and any injured person suffering from an evident head injury will be examined rapidly. Any medical practitioners who examine the casualty will use a universal scale to indicate the severity of a head injury called the Glasgow Coma Scale or GCS. This index provides information about the casualty such as their level of consciousness, their response to stimuli and their response to verbal instructions.

    A low score of 3 or less indicates a severe head injury which will need urgent medical intervention.
