Brain Injury – Vomiting

In the city of San Luis Obispo, vomiting can be a symptom of a traumatic brain injury whether or not the injury is mild or severe. Vomiting may be the result of severe pain as is common in other types of accidents. It can also be a side effect of medication being used to treat a traumatic brain injury. If vomiting occurs a single time, there is no treatment necessary. If the vomiting persists, medical treatment should be sought as soon as possible.

For example, a person may suffer a traumatic brain injury in a car accident that is as mild as a concussion. They decide not to seek medical treatment and begin vomiting hours after the accident. This person should seek emergency medical treatment immediately. If the person vomits a single time and does not experience any other symptoms, medical treatment is still advisable due to the possibility of head trauma, but it may not constitute an emergency.

When a person is hurt in an accident due to someone’s negligence or error, they may have the right to seek compensation under California law. Whether the accident is a vehicle collision or a slip and falls on someone’s property, injuries can occur and should not place a financial burden on the victim. Any person who has been injured in an accident has the right to seek compensation for medical treatment, lost wages, and more. Victims of accidents are urged to consult with an attorney experienced in personal injury law to determine their legal rights.
