How to cope with a brain injury – injury solicitors Felindre
A head injury will often lead to a brain injury, as the only thing protecting the brain from damage is the skull, which can also be harmful to the brain if your head is knocked hard enough. Concussion is very common after any head injury and is caused when the brain rattles around inside the skull after an impact. There are numerous other brain injuries that can occur, including the serious Traumatic Brain Injury, so it is important to know how to cope with this type of injury.
Work out if there is an injury
There are various ways to work out if you have sustained a brain injury. Symptoms of brain injury include:
- Slurred speech or confusion.
- Changes to facial muscles (such as only one part of the face responding when smiling).
- Problems with memory.
You can also find out simply enough by seeing a doctor as soon as possible after any form of head injury.
See a doctor
Whether you are checking if there is a brain injury, or are sure that there is, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Brain injuries can be very serious and in some cases can lead to death if not treated as quickly as possible. See your doctor or, even better, get to a hospital as soon as you possibly can.
Follow doctor’s orders
Your doctor will give you a number of things you need to do and treatment options for you to take up and it is important that you follow all of these rules to the letter to ensure that you recover as well as you possibly can. If you are unsure about any of the treatments then speak to your doctor first before discontinuing it.
