COMMON INJURY DETAILS
Head Injuries
Concussion
 
Concussion is the sudden but short-lived loss of mental function that occurs after a blow or other injury to the head. A concussion is among the most common, but least serious type of head or brain injury one may sustain, however specialist medical attention is still required to investigate and treat the injury.
 
Lacerations Bumps & Bruises
 
A head injury may be mild or severe depending on what caused it. Some injuries produce bleeding within your skull, while others cause damage on the outside of your head, such as in the form of lacerations, bumps or bruises. These injuries are commonly caused by falls or motor vehicle accidents. Injuries to the head could result in serious complications, including disability or even death. If you have suffered a head injury you should seek immediate medical attention from a qualified medical practitioner.
 
Subdural Hematoma
 
Subdural hematomas are usually the result of a serious head injury, sometimes referred to as an “acute” subdural hematoma. Acute subdural hematomas are among the deadliest of all head injuries, bleeding fills the brain area very rapidly, compressing brain tissue, which often results in brain injury, serious disability or even death. Individuals suffering such an injury require immediate medical emergency assistance.
