Skull Fractures

Even though the skull is strong enough to protect the brain from most routine sources of impact, blunt force trauma of sufficient force could potentially fracture the skull, resulting in life-threatening injuries. Damage to the brain can interfere with a variety of essential functions, and swelling or clotting can prove fatal. Skull fractures can range in severity from a simple or linear fracture that doesn’t damage the skin to a depressed or compound fracture where the bones are significantly damaged.

Symptoms of Skull Fracture

Skull fractures are typically caused by forceful head trauma. This impact might be associated with an automobile accident, a blow to the head, or even possibly a sports-related incident. The majority of skull fracture victims exhibit one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Concussion or amnesia
  • Bleeding from wound, ears, nose, and around eyes
  • Change in pupil size
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred Speech
  • Visual impairment

The symptoms may be obviously severe or as unassuming a bump on the head. Accordingly, it is critical to carefully monitor an individual’s condition if there is any reason to suspect that a head skull fracture has occurred. Medical attention should always be sought first, but in many cases, legal representation should be secured shortly thereafter.
