Do not delay head injury treatment, experts say

Maryland residents may have been among the millions of Americans who were brought up thinking that a bump on the head is no big deal. It is not uncommon for people to decide to wait a few days after a head injury before seeking medical attention. While this type of injury may seem like no big deal, experts say a head injury victim should not wait to see a doctor. 

Common symptoms of a head injury may not seem like a serious medical situation. Dizziness, blurred vision, trouble sleeping, and even sadness and irritability may be warning signs of a concussion or other traumatic brain injury. Experts say that, since these symptoms may not last very long, people may mistakenly think they are fine and not seek necessary medical treatment. 

A recent study shows that people who seek immediate medical attention for a head injury generally recover about 20 days faster than people who wait it out. Contrary to popular belief, there are treatments that can help lessen the symptoms and effects brought on by a concussion. An untreated head injury can lead to all sorts of serious medical complications, and possibly even death. 

If a Maryland resident has suffered a head injury as the result of another party's careless or irresponsible actions, he or she may have legal recourse. Taking a case to court may sound like an overwhelming endeavor when a victim is struggling to recover from a head injury, but fortunately, help is available. An experienced attorney can help a client prepare a case for civil court, and collect any damages or compensation that may be awarded after a favorable verdict for a plaintiff.
