    Accidents happen every day, all types of accidents causing all types of injuries. Some injuries are worse than others and amongst the worst are brain injuries.

    If the victim is not in a vegetative state, they may still need 24 hour care, they may still need to go into a care home, certainly whatever the outcome, the lives of the victim and their family could be changed forever.

    The mildest brain injury to sustain is concussion, but even this can have far reaching effects, the most common symptoms being:

    • Headache
    • Dizziness
    • Nausea
    • Loss of balance
    • Confusion
    • Feeling stunned or dazed
    • Double vision or seeing stars
    • Difficulty with memory

    The memory problems usually improve after a few hours, but the other symptoms can take much longer to retreat. If this has happened to you, in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to use injury lawyers in Resipole to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    There’s More to Come

    Concussion has other, less usual symptoms in the more serious cases, these being:

    • Loss of consciousness
    • Vomiting
    • Slurred speech
    • Glassy eyes or a vacant stare
    • Irritability
    • Strange emotional responses such as tears or laughter for no reason

    As a precaution, if any of these signs are showing, a visit to the local A & E should be made to ensure there are not more severe brain injuries. All even more reason who you should use injury lawyers in Resipole to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    The Vulnerable Victims

    Some victims of head injuries are more susceptible to the effects of brain injuries than others. These are:

    • The over 65’s
    • Where it is not the first head injury
    • Having conditions such as haemophilia that make you bleed more
    • Anyone taking blood thinning drugs such as warfarin or aspirin

    Treating Concussion

    You can take paracetamol to control the pain, but do not take anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or aspirin as they may cause a bleed. Use ice packs to reduce the swelling and get plenty of rest. For the first 48 hours, you should not stay alone in case other more urgent symptoms develop. You should stay resting until you are completely recovered, don’t even think of returning to work till the doctor gives you the OK.
