Recognizing Serious Head And Brain Injuries

Head injuries can cause discomfort and lasting medical problems that require expensive medical care. Unfortunately, the injury may not be immediately obvious. It is vital to seek medical attention soon after any serious accident to check for head and brain injuries, including:

  • Concussions: This is trauma to the brain after blunt force that causes it to collide with the inside of the skull. Swelling can cause discomfort, confusion and other mental side effects. Although the effects may be temporary, treatment and costs can continue for weeks or months after the initial injury.
  • Whiplash: Sudden changes in speed or the force of collisions can cause the head to snap forward or to the side. The resulting "whiplash" pulls or tears the bones of the neck or muscles around the head and shoulders. Recovery from these injuries can be long-lasting, restricting the head's mobility and use of the neck and shoulders.
  • Contusions: A brain contusion is a bruise caused by blunt injury. It can cause the brain to swell and may require surgery.
  • Brain hemorrhages: Severe accidents can cause an artery to burst in the brain. Known as a brain hemorrhage, this injury is a type of stroke. A hemorrhage can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical care.
  • Penetration: This occurs when an object penetrates the skull or brain and requires urgent medical care.
