How Do I Know If I Have Sustained a Head Injury in a Slip and Fall Accident?

If you hit your head in a slip and fall accident, you should really consider seeking immediate medical attention. This is especially true if you experience any swelling or bleeding as a result of hitting your head. Not all head and brain injuries are the result of some dramatic and extreme incident. People who have sustained head injuries may not even lose consciousness. In fact, head injuries will often only produce minimal symptoms at first. Do not let the often subtle symptoms of a head injury dissuade you from seeking medical attention. While head injury symptoms can be easy to ignore, they can have devastating consequences to those that fail to recognize them or fail to take them seriously.

All it takes to sustain a serious head injury or even a traumatic brain injury is for your head to be hit at just the right angle, in exactly the right spot, with a certain amount, not necessarily and extreme amount, of force. If you experience any of the following symptoms after hitting your head in a slip and fall, be sure to be evaluated by medical professionals as soon as possible:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Memory loss
  • Personality change
  • Problems with vision
  • Seizure
  • Sudden sleepiness

Getting medical attention as soon as possible is critical in preventing a head injury from becoming potentially life threatening. Be aware of any symptoms you may be experiencing after a slip and fall accident. Get medical attention accordingly. It may just save your life.
