How to know if a head injury is serious

Head injuries can include anything from minor injuries like bruising and grazes to the more serious lacerations and concussions, right up to severe injuries such as a fractured skull and brain injuries. Head injuries can cause serious long term issues resulting in a wide range of difficulties for the victim, whether it is loss of sight, fuzziness, consistent headaches or dizziness, post-concussion syndrome or even permanent disability, such as epilepsy, or in the worst cases, death.

A serious head injury doesn’t necessarily show any physical signs, as damage caused might all be unseen if there is no open wound. However, there will usually be some other indication of a severe head injury. Some of the common signs and symptoms of a serious head injury include:

  • A headache that doesn’t go away and worsens
  • Weakness or numbness
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Slurring of speech
  • Drowsiness, or having difficultly waking up
  • Unevenly sized pupils
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Inability to recognise people or places
  • Unusual levels of confusion, agitation or restlessness
  • Loss of consciousness

Any of these serious head injury symptoms mean that you should seek medical attention straight away.
