Every head injury does not result in a brain injury, but they are still serious. When head trauma occurs, the brain is affected in one way or another. The severity of the head injury will dictate the level and intensity of any brain injury present. Best case scenario, the brain is fine and unharmed. Worse case, the brain is injured severely and leads to a condition that irreversible and the victim is unable to recover fully, needing help for the remainder of the lifespan. 

At Cueria Law Firm, we specialize in helping victims of head injury. When the head is hit with a heavy object or an individual falls from a high point, head trauma can occur. One common injury associated with a head injury is a skull fracture. A skull fracture can have visible signs of trauma, such as bleeding, swelling or bruising. However, it can also show no visible sign at all. 

Medical assistance should always be provided when trauma occurs towards the head. The brain is a delicate organ that can be affected, even when no visible sign of injury is present. If you are ever injured in the head, be it from a fall or are hit by an object, it is important to have your head examined by a professional. Depending on the accident or traumatic experience, your head may need to be tested further to check for internal damage. 

Effects of a Brain Injury

The severity of a skull fracture will result in various symptoms. In mild cases, you may lose consciousness or have a headache. In a more severe case, you may have a amnesia or be in a coma for a prolonged period of time. Physical effects can include: 

  • Headaches
  • Lack of energy
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of hearing
  • Dizziness
  • Sleeping problems
  • Problems with speech
  • Difficulty with balance

Mentally, you may have trouble focusing, with memory loss, difficulty concentrating, feel a sense of depression or anxiety as well as impaired decision making. 

The type of treatment needed for a skull fracture will be dependent on the severity of the injury. In many cases, physical therapists are needed to help relearn physical aspects while speech pathologists are needed to assist with speech. Occupational therapists may also be needed along with rehab nurses and neuropsychologists. 

A skull fracture that results in a brain injury can be life-changing. If you have suffered such an injury due to the negligence of another individual, you may be due compensation.
