Children and Head Injuries

By Breyer Law Offices on August 23, 2011

A child’s head is surrounded by blood vessels and, after any sort of impact, swelling and veins leaking fluid or blood into the scalp could occur. External head injuries with even a small cut may bleed a lot. You should never apply pressure to a head injury in case the skull is fractured. If your child experiences any of the following symptoms they should be taken to an Emergency Room immediately:

  • Will not stop crying
  • Complaining of head and neck pain
  • Vomiting
  • Unable to wake up easily
  • Difficult to comfort and console
  • Is not walking normally
  • Uncontrolled bleeding from the site of impact

Often times a child with an internal head injury is suffering from a concussion. A concussion causes temporary loss of normal brain function as the result of an injury. Children commonly suffer concussions from bicycle accidents. It is important for your child to wear a well fitted helmet before getting onto their bicycle. Symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Memory loss
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Unable to concentrate or perform easy tasks
  • Unexplained anxiety or anger

Children’s head injuries can be very frightening for both children and parents. If your child has been involved in a bicycle or other type of personal injury accident our child injury attorneys in Phoenix are available for a free consultation (602) 457-6222.
