How To Recognize Head And Brain Injuries

Traumatic accidents such as car accidents and falls may cause serious head and brain injuries. If your child has been in an accident, it is important to watch for warning signs of concussions and other traumatic brain injuries so you make sure they can get appropriate treatment.

Here are some symptoms to watch for immediately after a fall or serious accident:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Lack of awareness of surroundings
  • Nausea or vomiting

Sometimes, however, symptoms of a head injury do not show up right away. In the days and weeks after an accident, you should keep an eye out for symptoms such as:

  • Persistent low-grade headache
  • Lightheadedness
  • Poor attention and concentration
  • Memory dysfunction
  • Becoming easily fatigued
  • Irritability and becoming easily frustrated
  • Intolerance to bright lights or difficulty focusing vision
  • Intolerance of loud noises or sometimes ringing in the ears
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Sleep disturbances

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention for your child right away.
