    Head injuries are one of the most devastating and worrying types of injury that can be sustained following any type of accident.  Often at the time of the accident, the extent and severity of a head injury is uncertain until detailed examinations of the patient have been undertaken.

    Head injuries and trauma are particularly worrying because the casualty may appear fine and coherent following the accident. However, minutes later, they can slip into unconsciousness and become poorly very rapidly without medical intervention.

    Medical practitioners describe this interlude between the accident occurring and help being given as the Golden Hour and it literally can mean the difference between life and death, for patients who are seriously injured.  If medical treatment is given within this short time frame, then the prognosis is more successful than if assistance is delayed.

    Causes of head trauma

    Head trauma and injuries may be the result of:

    • road traffic accidents
    • motorcycle accidents
    • riding accidents
    • sporting accidents
    • winter sports activities
    • water sports activities
    • work related accidents
    • industrial related accidents
    • slips, trips and falls

    Treating head trauma

    If the head trauma is likely to be serious, then an air ambulance may be dispatched to assess and treat the casualty at the scene.  Unlike ambulances, the air ambulance service has a trained doctor on board who can make decisions rapidly and assess the patient immediately following the accident.  If necessary, the crew of the air ambulance may decide to transfer the patient to a specialist trauma centre for head injuries by air for speed.

    Open Claim Calculator

    Head injuries are assessed and monitored using the Glasgow Coma Scale. A level of 8 or below indicates a serious head injury.  The patient may be unconscious and failing to respond to stimuli at this critical level.

    Rapid assessment using MRI, CT and x rays may be used to establish the extent and location of any head trauma and swelling to the brain.  Any bleeding in the skull can put the brain under pressure through swelling and cause brain damage, so immediate surgery may be required to reduce this risk.
