Even a mild brain injury can be serious

Minnesota residents who work in jobs where they routinely use ladders, scaffolds or are in other situations where falls may happen should be consciously aware not just of the safety protocols to prevent falls but of some of the things that can happen if a fall does occur. A brain injury is one of these things. According to, falls are actually the third-most common cause of traumatic brain injuries.

A traumatic brain injury may be severe or mild and all too often mild brain injuries can be overlooked and dismissed because the problems they cause are not as extreme as severe brain injuries. However, people with mild brain injuries should proactively ensure that they get proper care as the symptoms can last for a year or even more in some cases. A blow to the head that results in mental confusion or loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes is generally considered mild. 

People who have experienced a mild brain injury, often called a concussion, may face many problems ranging from headaches to reduced cognitive abilities and even seizures. Sensitivity to sounds and light, memory challenges, fatigue, sleep problems and vision disturbances may also happen after a mild brain injury has occurred. Some people even experience mood swings or mild depression.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to give Minnesota residents an overview of the seriousness of any type of head injury and what they should be aware of after an accident involving any trauma to the head.
