Severe head injuries are particularly worrying, as they can often result in significant cognitive and processing problems for the victim of a brain injury. Depending on which areas of the brain have been damaged, certain functions can be permanently affected resulting in speech, language, memory and functioning difficulties which are lifelong.
What types of accidents can cause severe head injury?
Brain injuries can happen in many ways, and just a few examples are:
- road traffic accidents
- riding accidents
- cycling accidents
- motorbike accidents
- falls from height
- construction and industrial accidents
How does the brain get damaged?
The brain may become damaged when fluid builds up in the skull forcing the brain to swell downwards. Fluid may be due to internal bleeding which causes a build up of pressure inside the skull. Unless this is diagnosed and treated promptly, then the brain may become damaged permanently.
What are the symptoms of head injury?
- visible head trauma
- loss of consciousness
How are head injuries diagnosed?
Head injuries are assessed by paramedics as soon as they arrive on scene. Using the Glasgow Coma Scale, the medical professionals can ascertain if the head trauma is severe enough to call for an air ambulance to attend the scene and transport the casualty quickly to hospital.
Any head injury that causes a loss of consciousness should always be investigated by a medical practitioner.Open Claim Calculator
