Common Head Injuries

Common Head Injuries

Head injuries are quite common in our everyday activities at home or at work. When you sustain a head injury due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to ask for a compensation claim for all the trauma and financial losses that the injury has caused you. Common head injuries may be quite minor on the scalp and face like abrasions, bruising and laceration that may lead to serious consequences that involve harm to brain. Though it is not quite often that serious brain injuries are sustained, still it is essential to know how to identify them and what should be done for the first aid to minimise the damage.

Unconsciousness, a state of confusion regarding date, location, time or period of the memory loss for events that surround head injury can also be taken as indicators of the trauma to brain. Such indications require immediate medical treatment and must be taken very seriously. In minor head injuries, the victim must be observed for a few hours and if any deterioration is noticed in the brain injury because of internal bleeding and swelling, it must be reported to the doctor immediately as in some rare cases, head injuries also prove to be life-threatening.  

The most common head injuries arise due to three features of brain skull anatomy: internal contours and rigidity of skull, susceptibility of brain trim forces and incompressibility of the brain tissue. Severity of head injuries can be classified according to these symptoms. Coma or unconsciousness and post painful amnesia are two of the common symptoms that are used. These symptoms might stretch up to a few hours or even a few days. 

Head injury lawyers know exactly what all should be analysed to estimate an appropriate compensation for injuries on head.
