CATASTROPHIC HEAD AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
A safe rule of thumb is that, if anyone in the car accident or other severe accident is seriously injured, you should assume the potential for a head or brain injury exists for everyone else involved in the incident.
Understanding Head Injury Symptoms
Victims of head injuries may appear entirely normal after an accident. However, their state can rapidly deteriorate if a serious head or brain injury is present. From concussions to more serious skull fractures or hematoma (bleeding in the brain), here are several symptoms to watch out for:
- Dizziness or problems with balance
- Double or blurred vision
- Feeling sluggish, tired or foggy
- Headaches and sensitivity to light
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Symptoms:
- Change in pupil size
- Changes in hearing, smell or taste
- Slurred speech or blurred vision
- Stiff neck or vomiting
- Convulsions or loss of consciousness
