Claim the injury compensation you are entitled to
Head injuries remain one of the most serious types of injury following North Lincolnshire road traffic accidents, as the casualties involved may deteriorate rapidly and their condition may become unstable without prior warning.
If you, or a member of your family, have sustained a serious head injury following your North Lincolnshire road traffic accidents, then you may be able to pursue personal injury compensation using the leading experts, Accident Advice Helpline.
Symptoms of a head injury
You may have suffered a head injury if you experience any of the following:
- Bleeding or lacerations to the head
- Fluid from the nose or ears
- Swelling to the head
- Severe pain and inflammation to the head
- Loss of consciousness
- Distorted or partial vision
- Loss of hearing
- Breathing difficulties
Diagnosing a head injury
A head injury may be obvious at the scene of North Lincolnshire road traffic accidents and the casualty will be rapidly assessed by a paramedic at the road side. They will adopt the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) to give a clear indication of the severity of the head injury. This is an index which scores a patient’s level of consciousness, level of response to verbal instructions and level of response to stimuli.
Head injuries are constantly reassessed to detect any changes in a casualty’s level of response, which may indicate a worsening of their condition caused by North Lincolnshire road traffic accidents.
A CT scan or MRI may be used to diagnose and identify the location of a bleed or blood clot which is suspected. This can then by used to inform surgical intervention to release the pressure and prevent swelling from causing potential brain damage.
