Been badly injured and needed medical assistance? Speak to our leading injury solicitors  to start your compensation claim!

Accidents may cause painful and distressing injuries that may take a long period of time to overcome.  However, certain injuries are more worrying than others, as an injury to the central nervous system or brain can mean that sensory impairment is caused or even paralysis which can have life long consequences.

If you, or some one you know, have sustained a serious head injury within the last 3 years as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim for your injury, and you should speak to our solicitors in Grays.

What are the signs and symptoms of a head injury?

  • Trauma to the head
  • Bleeding
  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of hearing
  • Visual impairment
  • Swelling or discoloration of the soft tissues
  • Pain and discomfort across the facial area
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Poor reactions to stimuli

Receiving medical attention

It is crucial that a casualty is assessed and treated as soon as possible following an injury to the head.  All injuries to the neck and head should be investigated as soon as possible by a medical practitioner.  The hour following a trauma to the head is known as the ‘Golden Hour’, as it is imperative that a diagnosis is made and treatment provided quickly to reduce the risk of further bleeding or neural damage.

An index known as the Glasgow Coma Scale is used to accurately assess a casualty’s condition and level of consciousness when they have sustained a severe head injury.  This scale can indicate the severity of a head injury through a range of simple tests.  The scale runs from 15 to 0 and assesses motor responses, verbal responses and eye opening.  

How are head injuries diagnosed?

Closed head injuries may be diagnosed using sophisticated diagnostic tools such as MRI scans or CT scans.  These can accurately pin point the location and extent of an injury or bleed and inform medical staff of the treatment that is required.

In the case of severe head injury, the casualty may require assistance to breathe with a ventilator and be placed in an artificial coma to allow any swelling of the brain to subside.  Any swelling in the brain may be caused by bleeding or blood clots which may need to be treated surgically to reduce the likelihood of brain damage developing.
