Know the Facts about Head Injuries in California
Two million people sustain head injuries in the United States every year. These serious injuries are caused by a wide range of circumstances, including car accidents, truck accidents, recreational / sports accidents, workplace accidents, and more. Of these head injuries, more than 500,000 are severe enough to warrant hospitalization. As you can see from these statistics, head injuries are not an uncommon problem.
Some symptoms of traumatic brain injury include, but are not limited to:
- Disorientation / confusion
- Changes in fatigue level
- Sudden sleepiness, drowsiness
- Loss of taste, vision and smell
- Difficulties in comprehension
- Seizures and convulsions
- Coma / unconsciousness
- Fracture in the skull
- Frequent or severe headaches
- Slurred speech
- Fluid draining from nose, ears, or mouth
- Changes in personality
Unfortunately, many head injuries go undiagnosed every year. If you have reason to believe that you or a loved one may have suffered a head injury in an accident, even weeks or months after the event, you should not hesitate to converse with your doctor about the possibility. By ordering a test such as a CT scan, X-ray, or MRI, your healthcare provider can determine whether or not you experienced neurological damage.
