Have a head injury and need to make an injury claim in Sinnington?
If you have been the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault and suffered a head injury as a result, then you may be legally entitled to make an injury claim Sinnington.
Head injuries can cause a wide range of symptoms depending on the severity of the injury. Severe head injuries can cause:
- concussion which causes a sudden and short lived loss of mental function
- difficulty speaking or staying awake
- seizures and fits
- sensory problems such as double vision or loss of hearing
Diagnosing head injury
Head injuries are diagnosed using the Glasgow Coma Scale and this identifies how serious the head injury is and if the brain has been affected. A scale of 3 is the most severe and 15 is the least severe, whilst scale 8 or less is regarded as severe. Tests are used to identify brain injury and swelling or bleeding in the brain, such as:
- CT scan
- x ray
- MRI scan
These scans can give doctors a clearer picture of how serious a head injury is and inform further treatment.
Treatment for head injury
Severe head injuries require hospitalisation and this treatment may include:
- observation to detect any changes in cognition
- treating additional injuries
- conducting tests to identify further damage such as brain damage
- performing surgery where appropriate
When a person suffers a severe head injury, it may cause bleeding, blood clots or a build up of fluid which causes pressure on the brain. This pressure can lead to brain damage.
This brain injury may be temporary or permanent and the effects of a brain injury can have emotional, physical and behavioural effects on the person depending on which area of the brain has been affected.
