Common Symptoms and Injuries
There are many different ways in which the brain may suffer trauma or injury. A blow to the head may cause a wide range of injuries from a minor concussion to severe nerve damage, brain swelling, or skull fractures. If you or someone you know exhibits any of these symptoms following head injury, seek medical attention immediately.
Symptoms of a brain injury may include:
- Dizziness and nausea
- Lack of memory of recent events
- Unusual tiredness
- Headaches or migraines
- Lack of strength and coordination
- Trouble communicating
- Changes in hearing, smell, or vision
- Loss of feeling in specific areas of the body
The Importance of Medical Care
In many situations, brain injuries may not show obvious symptoms to the injured party or any observers. Sometimes the adrenaline from the excitement of the accident can cause your body to mask any pains or indications of injury, while other times the injury is simply internal and signs may not be obvious. In any case, it is crucial that you always seek medical attention following any head injury, even if you think it unnecessary. Doctors can perform X-rays and MRI scans to look for swelling, skull fractures, hemorrhaging, or other serious issues.
For legal purposes, it is also much easier to prove injury if a medical professional examined and diagnosed your condition. Your medical records, tests, diagnosis, and treatment records will serve as evidence of how injured you are and will help determine what compensation you deserve.
Brain injuries are commonly caused by the following:
