Have you sustained a serious head injury? Do you need expert advice?
Serious head injuries are one of the most frightening types of injury that can result from an accident. The very nature of head injuries means that they are unpredictable and the casualty may deteriorate rapidly without warning. The hour following an accident involving a head injury is known as the golden hour; the treatment that is received in this timeframe can make a considerable difference to the outcome and prognosis for the casualty.
If you have been injured in an accident or incident that wasn’t your fault within the last three years, then you may be able to pursue an personal injury compensation claim using Accident Advice Helpline’s team of specialist injury solicitors in Kellington.
Causes of head injury
Head injuries are often caused in accidents which occur at speed, such as:
- Road traffic collisions;
- Cycling accidents;
- Skiing accidents;
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Workplace accidents; and
- Industrial accidents.
Diagnosing head injuries
Once at the scene of the accident, the medical practitioner will rapidly assess the casualty’s response to stimuli and the extent of their visible injuries. Fluids and pain relief may be given to ease the pain of the injuries. A patient’s response is charted against the Glasgow Coma Scale, which is used to establish the severity of the head injury. If a patient scores eight or less, they are likely to be unconscious and have poor responses to stimuli.
An air ambulance may be called to respond to the casualty and take them to a trauma centre that specialises in serious head injuries, so that they receive the most appropriate treatment.
