When a fall causes a serious head injury

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

A slip-and-fall accident can cause serious injuries for a victim. Many factors, such as where the slip happened and what surface the victim was on when it happened, can contribute to the severity of the victim’s injuries. Slip-and-fall injuries can happen indoors and outside, during winter and summer, at night and in the daylight, and can leave New Jersey residents with pain, loss, and suffering.

One of the most serious forms of injuries that a slip-and-fall accident victim may suffer is a head injury. While injuries to the face and skull can be significant, injuries to the brain can be life-threatening and permanent. Known as traumatic brain injuries, this category of harm can cause widespread and irreversible loss to victims.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are caused by significant impacts to the head and penetration injuries. An impact may occur during a slip-and-fall accident when a victim hits their head on the ground or on another surface as they fall. A penetration injury may happen if a slip-and-fall victim suffers a puncture to their head as they lose balance and topple over.

The symptoms of traumatic brain injuries can affect many parts of victims’ bodies. Some of those symptoms can include:

  • Pain and headaches
  • Lack of coordination
  • Memory problems
  • Light and sound sensitivity
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Mood changes and depression

The severity of a victim’s injury will influence what symptoms they suffer and what treatments they may need to work toward recovery.

What to do after a slip-and-fall accident

The extent of a victim’s slip-and-fall injuries can range from minor to life-threatening. Medical attention can be sought by victims to ensure that their health needs are met in a timely manner. This post does not offer any guidance on medical treatments or medical advice.

Victims can also take control of their losses and seek legal support from personal injury attorneys. Legal professionals can advise their clients of how to seek their losses from the parties that caused their harm and advocate for their rights. Legal advice may be sought from personal injury lawyers as this post does not provide any legal guidance.
