When a person is involved in a traumatic event, such as a fall, auto accident, or sporting event contact, the first reaction is to look for obvious signs of injury such as bruising, swelling, cuts, abrasions etc.We all know from recent concern about professional football players, that closed head injuries are common, and unfortunately,immediate recognition of theclosed headinjurydoesn’t always occur.
After any trauma to the body, with no obvious signs of head injury, we need to be aware of the development of symptoms post accident.Closed head injuries, such as concussions, can manifestthemselves at a later time as the bruised brain swells inside the skull.Some obvious signs include headache, vision impairment, dizziness, or prolonged sleep.The more severe closed head injuries may require surgery to ease the swelling, and allow the brain room to expand.
Drastic medical treatment such as, induced coma may be necessary to prevent death or serious long-term impairment of function. If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic event like the one described above, it is important to seek legal advice from a closed head injury attorney. With the guidance of a trained closed head injury lawyer, you can take the steps needed to seek the justice you deserve.
