    How to treat concussion – injury solicitors in Dufftown

    Concussion is a very common result of a head injury, and happens when the brain is shaken inside the skull as a result of impact with the ground or an object. Most concussions do not leave lasting damage, and are just temporarily uncomfortable, but you can have more serious concussions that may prove dangerous. Plus, of course, any head injury is dangerous and can lead to further complications, so you should always be aware and ready to treat the injury.

    Look out for the symptoms

    If you know that someone has had a head injury then you should immediately be assessing them for the symptoms of a concussion. These symptoms include:

    • Headache
    • Light sensitivity
    • Unusual mood swings, irritability or excitability
    • Loss of balance and coordination
    • Numbness or tingling in the arms and legs
    • Vision disturbances
    • Difficulties focusing or concentrating

    Ask the victim if they have any of these symptoms, but also be aware of how they are acting and behaving so that you can assess them as well, as after a head injury they may not be in the correct place to answer your questions.

    Get them to avoid moving

    With any head injury you should get the patient to stay very still and avoid moving their head or neck. If they do move then they can cause further injury, and they may find that it hurts more when they move.

    Speak to a doctor

    You should get the emergency services to the scene as soon as you can, so that the person can be looked over by a doctor, but it may also help to get a doctor on the phone whilst you are waiting so that you can get more advice on how to treat the patient in the meantime.
