A head injury can greatly vary in severity from bruising to the skin and minor cuts to concussion, a fractured skull or brain injury. Even a fairly minor head injury can cause long-lasting symptoms such as headaches, vision problems and dizziness. More serious traumatic head injuries can cause permanent disability and sometimes death.
Common causes of a traumatic head injury are road traffic accidents, home and work-related accidents, falls, and assaults. Bicycle accidents are also a cause of traumatic head injury-related death and disability, especially among children.
Following a traumatic head injury accident it can often take many days or weeks for brain damage or other serious head injuries to show symptoms. Headaches, vomiting, blurred vision, drowsiness and confusion are the common symptoms of a traumatic head injury. After any accident, the sooner you seek medical attention, the greater your chances of making a full recovery.
