You dropped your teenager off at a friend’s pool party in Tacoma. You are close with the teen’s parents and felt comfortable leaving her in their care. A few hours later, however, you learn your daughter slipped on a wet pool deck and fell. Her head hit the ground with force and she was now complaining of a headache.

Traumatic brain injuries are common among children who suffer slip and fall injuries. Depending on their severity, these injuries can have lasting and damage effects.

The Symptoms of Serious Head Injuries After a Slip and Fall

Hitting one’s head can cause a variety of different injuries, including concussions, diffuse axonal injury, coup-contrecoup injuries, and contusions. Here are some of the signs your child could be suffering from a serious injury:

  • She has a seizure after the incident
  • She has head, neck, or back pain
  • She has difficulty walking normally
  • She vomits more than two times after hitting her head
  • She cannot focus her eyes normally
  • She is confused or disoriented
  • She becomes very tired or has difficulty waking up

If you haven’t already taken her to receive a medical examination, you should do so immediately if she begins displaying any of these symptoms.
