A: Head injuries are quite common in slip, trip and fall accidents. Stairway accidents and snow/ice accidents commonly result in head injuries.
However, this kind of injury often takes the back seat, especially if there are other serious injuries like a broken or fractured bone. For example, someone who falls and breaks their arm and needs surgery might not realize that headaches and other cognitive issues resulted from a head injury.
It takes a medical professional to diagnose a head injury, and proving that a fall accident caused a head injury often requires reviewing medical records such as an ambulance report and emergency room records. In addition, an eyewitness or video footage may prove that the head came into contact with the floor, wall, step etc.
