A head injury is any type of trauma that causes an injury to the scalp, skull or brain.
Head injuries can range from minor injuries including bruising and grazing to serious lacerations and concussion. At the serious end, severe head injuries can include fractured skulls or serious brain injuries. Long-term issues caused by head injuries can include loss of sight, regular headaches, dizziness, post-concussion syndrome, permanent disability and, in some cases, death.
The most obvious sign of a head injury is a visible wound but injuries are not always so obvious and it is advised to carefully monitor a head injury for any side effects or symptoms.
Concussion is the most common type of head injury and can be relatively minor. However, it is a condition that can quickly deteriorate signifying more severe brain injury.
This is most commonly seen in cases where the skull is fractured following pressure or force being applied to the head. The force exerted on the head will be strong enough to cause a fracture or displacement.
When the structure of the head is not affected or fractured it is known as a closed head injury.
There are a number of types of accidents that have the potential to cause head injury, including:
Your head injury claim may stem from a car accident, trip or slip, accident in the workplace or as a result of medical negligence. Whatever the reason for your injuries, if there is a third party at fault then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim.
If you have suffered an injury of any kind from the above then your life will have been impacted. The degree of the impact your head injury has caused will reflect the amount of compensation you receive.
