Head or Brain Injuries
Injuries to the head may result in permanent disability or loss of cognitive function. Concussions are the most common form of head injuries and while mild concussions may not result in permanent damage to your brain, it is still caused by the brain slamming against the skull hard enough to “knock you out.” Traumatic Brain injuries (TBI) – of which a concussion is a type – are often categorized as a more significant head injuries.
Symptoms of a head injury include confusion, balance problems, feeling foggy, headache, memory or cognitive difficulties and nausea among others.
If you believe you sustained a head injury following an accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
