Types of Head Injuries
The term “head injury” is a broad term used to describe many different types of injuries. According to Columbia University’s Department of Neurology, 1.7 million people suffer from a traumatic brain injury every year. Head injuries can include mild traumatic brain injuries that stem from a bruise or bump to the head to more serious head injuries that include skull fractures and intracranial hematoma (a blood clot in the brain). Skull fractures and blood clots in the brain can lead to life-threatening brain injury and brain damage if not treated immediately. Columbia University’s Department of Neurology notes that one of the most common cause of traumatic head injuries are car accidents. If you have been in a car accident or truck accident in which you sustained a blow to the head, hit your head, or suffered whiplash, you may want to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Some head injuries may not be immediately apparent in the minutes after a car accident, and individuals have been suffering from serious brain bleeds without knowing. Because they didn’t receive immediate treatment, some individuals have even passed away from these types of injuries.
Mild traumatic brain injury can include a wide array of symptoms and there really isn’t anything mild about some mild traumatic brain injuries. Symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury include headaches, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, irritability, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, confusion, balance issues, memory difficulty, difficulty concentrating, blurred vision, tiredness, and changes in sleep.
More serious brain injuries can result in loss of consciousness, memory loss (amnesia), seizures, mood and personality changes, coma, locked in syndrome, problems walking or moving, problems speaking, and other issues.
Head injuries can be devastating for victims and their families. If you or someone you love suffered a head injury, you might be facing a range of medical treatments and rehabilitation options. In the immediate aftermath of your accident, you may be treated in the emergency room, where blood tests, X-rays, CAT scans, MRIs, and EEGs may be performed. Treatments may include surgery, but often the patient needs to be mentored with ice, rest, and medication. Monitoring of intracranial pressure may be required to ensure that swelling doesn’t lead to brain damage or death. Long-term issues can stem from head injuries, and victims may need life-long support to manage these challenges and disabilities.
Symptoms of head injuries can include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss (amnesia)
- Problems thinking and remembering
- Sleep problems
- Mood changes
- Sensory changes
