Contusion Injuries and Symptoms
Brain contusions result from a traumatic injury to the head, such as being hit in the head or having your head shaken violently. Since a brain contusion involves structural damage to the brain, it is considered more severe than a concussion. If you have experienced a head trauma injury, seeking medical attention to determine if you have a contusion is imperative, as contusions occur in 20–30% of people who suffer severe head trauma. A doctor may order tests, such as an MRI or CT Scan, to determine the severity of the contusion.
While minor contusions need to be monitored by a doctor and will heal without intervention, severe contusions often require medical intervention to prevent further swelling and damage to the brain. Some common symptoms of brain contusions include the following:
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Numbness in limbs, toes, or fingers
- Difficulty with balance or loss of coordination
- Trouble understanding speech or speaking
- Inability to focus
- Memory loss
- Dilated pupils
- Headaches that won’t go away or gets worse
- Convulsions or seizures
- Repeated vomiting and nausea
If you or someone you love has experienced head trauma or is experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.
Causes of Contusions
Head traumas are commonly suffered in an accident, a fall, or when participating in sports. It is common for the intentional wrongful act or the negligence of another to contribute to these types of injuries.
Those participating in sports understand that they risk injuries. When playing a sport, the player consents to a certain amount of contact that is associated with playing the game. In some instances though, people may go beyond what is allowed by the rules of the game and severely injure someone. If you have suffered a head trauma due the intentional and aggressive act of another, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries.
Accidents are another common cause of head trauma. While accidents can happen because of a variety of circumstances, car accidents are the most prominent cause of severe head trauma. Even though drivers have a responsibility to exercise caution when operating a vehicle, many do not take this responsibility seriously enough. Drivers often become distracted while driving because they are texting or talking on a cell phone. These and other careless actions might distract their attention from the road and put themselves and others at risk of serious injury or death.
Falling also frequently causes head trauma. People may fall at work, in a store, or on someone else’s property. Unfortunately, falls at work are some of the most commonly reported injuries, and they could usually have been avoided with proper care. Falls can also happen when shopping in a store or on another piece of property. Employers, store owners, and property holders all have varying degrees of responsibility to keep their premises safe, and they must take precautions to prevent harm to others. If a property owner fails to keep their property safe and someone falls and gets injured, the property owner may be liable for damages.
If you or someone you love has suffered a brain contusion due to the intentional wrongdoing or negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. Understanding the legal process in these situations can be confusing and frustrating. That is why Amerio Law Firm is here to help.
