The symptoms that could result in you making an East Cambridgeshire accident at work claim

There are a huge number of brain injuries that you could suffer, from mild, like concussion, to a serious penetrating brain injury. Every victim reacts differently, as they do with all injuries, but just some of the more common symptoms you could suffer are:

  • Loss of balance and trouble walking
  • Confusion and lack of comprehension
  • Feeling stunned or dazed
  • Double vision or impaired sight
  • Difficulty with memory
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness and depression

If you have any inkling that you or someone you know has suffered any sort of brain injury you should seek immediate medical attention, and anyone who has received a blow to the head should not be left on their own for the first 48 hours afterwards as the signs of a brain injury can take that long to start to show.

The things to look for after a blow to the head

A victim who has suffered a blow to the head should be taken care of for at least 48 hours, and if they start to show any of the following signs they should be taken to hospital without delay.

  • Glassy eyes or a vacant stare
  • Irritability
  • Strange emotional responses
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech

The hospital will be able to check properly for brain injuries, and the sooner treatment starts, the better the chance of a full recovery.
