    1. Concussion: a loss of mental function which may have a sudden onset, but is usually short lived.
    2. Difficulty staying awake or speaking
    3. Seizure or fits:  sudden uncontrollable body movements
    4. Sensory problems: difficulty hearing or having double vision

    How is a severe head injury diagnosed?

    Like any injury to our bodies, head injuries vary in their seriousness and may lead to an injury claim Otterburn.  Whilst being treated in hospital, your head injury may be assessed using the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) to determine how severe the injury is and if the brain has been damaged.  Computerised tomography may be used to establish any internal injuries to the head.  In addition, a magnetic resonance image may be obtained to give a detailed picture of any further injuries that did not shown up on an x ray.

    Treatment for a severe head injury

    Whilst in hospital, the treatment for severe head injury can include:

    • Tests to check for additional damage to the rest of the body
    • Treating other injuries, such as broken bones
    • Observation to detect any changes in your condition.  If the condition of the head injury worsens, then Intensive Care may be required.

    Brain injury – the impact on the rest of your life

    Brain damage following a severe head injury can be caused by a bleed, a blood clot or fluid building up which puts pressure on the brain.  Brain injury can be a temporary or permanent condition, but it can have emotional, behavioural and physical consequences depending which areas of the brain have been affected.   Complications arising from a severe injury to the head may have life changing consequences on the person who is injured.  Family members of the patient may wish to make an injury claim Otterburn on their behalf if the patient is left in a long term coma or vegetative state.
