Head injuries from an accident can cause traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s).  This can happen with a penetrating or closed wound.  A penetrating head injury is one that breaks through the skull, whereas a closed injury does not.   Some TBI’s are not very severe, such as a mild concussion.  About 80% of TBI’s are considered “mild,” taking only hours, day or weeks to subside.  Severe and moderate TBI’s can have long term effects such as:

  • Memory loss and cognitive dysfunction
  • Loss of coordination or balance
  • Impact on senses
  • Personality Changes

These are some symptoms of TBI to be aware of:

  • Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or remembering new information
  • Severe headache
  • Slurred speech
  • Stiff neck
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability, sadness, or anxiety
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Seizures

If you have had any type of blow to the head and have any of the symptoms listed above, seek medical treatment immediately.  Testing such as X-rays, CT scans and MRI’s can let the doctors know what might need to be done immediately.  There may be internal bleeding.  If you wait, you could be risking your life.  Medical attention first, then call Queens Brain Injuries Attorney to find out if you have a case.

Fractures of the Skull

A strong impact to the head can cause a skull fracture.  Symptoms can include tenderness, bruising, swelling and bleeding from the ears and nose.  Some skull fractures are mild and heal on their own, but others can require surgical intervention.  The severity can depend on many factors, including the location on the skull, the force or angle of the impact and the hardness and shape of the cause of the impact.

Facial Lacerations and Scarring

Cuts or lacerations are common in accident injuries, especially in car accidents.  These lacerations can be caused by broken glass or sharp metal.  Most cuts will heal on their own, but a very deep cut may require suturing.  Some lacerations, especially on the face, may require plastic surgery to avoid scarring.  Some plastic surgery needs to be done immediately and there are other types that can help correct disfigurement years later.
