Understanding The Symptoms Of A Head Injury
With accidents resulting in head injuries, it is common for the victim not to notice any immediate symptoms. It may be hours, days or weeks after an accident before the full extent of a head injury is clear. As a result, if you are involved in a collision, it is important to seek medical treatment even if it doesn’t seem like anything is wrong.
The following symptoms may indicate a head injury requiring immediate medical care:
- Sudden changes in mood
- Change in sleep patterns
- Difficulty speaking
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Headaches or migraines
- Ringing in the ears
- Blurred vision
- Increased sensitivity to bright light
- Lack of balance or coordination
- Unexplained disorientation or confusion
- Loss of consciousness
- Vomiting or nausea
- Persistent numbness
If you or a member of your family is experiencing any of these symptoms after being involved in a vehicle collision or other accident, it is important to seek immediate treatment. If the accident was someone else’s fault, our Seattle head injury lawyers can help you pursue recovery of your medical expenses. Additional compensation may also be available to cover other damages such as lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Although treatment and rehabilitation can help head injury victims grapple with the effects of head injuries, some symptoms will change your life forever. While a personal injury claim cannot make you whole, it can provide financial compensation for what you have lost.
