Slip-and-fall accidents could cause severe head injuries

A fall-related incident can occur in the blink of an eye and under a multitude of scenarios. There are also a variety of injuries that can stem from similar incidents, some of which could lead to serious or even permanent damage. According to studies, slip-and-fall accidents continue to be a leading cause of head injuries. Such injuries could cause a person in Arizona to experience various symptoms and the severity thereof may range from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury. 

Head injuries 

Studies indicate that head injuries can present with a variety of symptoms. Examples of these symptoms could include the possibility of experiencing bouts with headaches and dizziness and such issues could linger for extended periods. Those who suffer a head injury could also struggle with issues such as nausea and fatigue or struggle with bouts of confusion and issues with blurry vision. 

Head injuries may also run the risk of causing a person to struggle with concentration or to experience memory loss. While such issues may only prove temporary in some instances, there is also a chance that these issues could develop into long-term or even permanent health concerns. Studies also indicate that head injuries may also create other health concerns such as sensitivity to light, uncontrollable mood swings, and disruption of sleep patterns. 

Pursuing restitution 

Those who suffer head injuries in slip-and-fall accidents may experience a multitude of hardships in life. Should the incident occur due to the negligent actions of a property owner, the victim might choose to retain the services of a personal injury attorney for guidance on his or her available options for legal recourse. An attorney in Arizona can work with a client in preparing a strategy with which to seek the full amount of restitution deserved and assist him or her in navigating the process.
