Head Injuries and Concussion

Head Injuries and Concussion

Concussions generally result from brain or head injuries that are caused due to a sudden jerk or blow to the body or the head. The jerk in turn shakes the human brain present inside the skull that prevents brain from functioning properly for a temporary basis. There are some people who face common concussion symptoms, there are some others that may not have the obvious signs and causes. It has been found that the patients recover completely from the problem of head injuries and concussion within a short span of time ranging from a few hours to some weeks.

There are very rare chances when these concussions may cause severe problems. Repeated or serious concussions can even require a surgery to take place or cause long lasting speaking, movement and learning difficulties. As the difficulties faced due to severe head injuries and concussion are highly dangerous, it is better to contact a medical professional as soon as you start getting intuitions about the concussion symptoms faced.

Like other head injuries, concussions also exist in different severity degrees. Mild concussions can have no or very little loss of the consciousness and that too for a short span of time. On the other hand, serious concussions involve extended consciousness loss and a delayed time to return to the normal condition.

Although it is not easy to predict that someone is suffering from, there are some common symptoms that are faced due to head injuries and concussion. The obvious and mostly found symptoms include:

  • Not being in a state to recall or remember what actually took place after the time of injury.
  • Feeling lightheaded and experiencing ear ringing difficulties.
  • Feeling nauseous.
  • Not have adequate strength to walk or stand properly or facing balancing and coordination difficulties.
  • Acting like a confused person, slurring words, no proper concentration and asking similar questions time and gain
  • Passing out

The common causes of concussion that the patients face are:

  • Fights
  • Playground injuries
  • Car crashes
  • Bike accidents
  • Falls
  • Participation in sports of high speed such as hockey, skiing, snowboarding, soccer, football and boxing

People can reduce the chances of facing head injuries and concussions by:

  • Wearing safety equipments and helmets while skateboarding, skiing or biking
  • Wearing set belts while in a car, paying due attention to your driving and not driving when under the spell of alcohol or drugs.
  • Making your home an accident-proof area. This can be achieved by providing lights to the darker regions, mending the uneven or rough surfaces, padding the sharp edges of objects and blocking off the stairways.

Whether you were injured on the road, at work, in a public place or elswhere you are likely to have a claim to pursue provided it can be proved that the accident was the result of someone else's negligence.
