Head Injury Cases
Head injuries can be the result of a variety of different types of accident, including car accidents or sporting injuries, and can vary a great deal in severity. All head injuries should be assessed by a medical professional to establish whether or not there is significant damage, or whether there is a likelihood of long-term consequences.
Negative outcomes as a result of head injury may not be immediately obvious but any symptoms of suspected concussion should be immediately investigated by a doctor.
What Sort of Problems are Linked to Head Injuries?
Head injuries can be associated with many short and long term problems, including:
• Spinal injuries

• Coma (temporary or long-term)
