Symptoms of a basilar skull fracture include bleeding from the ears and nose, "racoon eyes" (caused by pooling of blood in the optical cavity), blood in the sinuses, and leaking of cerebrospinal fluid from the ears or nose (it may drip into the back of the throat resulting in a salty taste).

A bit for me to think about, too. I have a character I've given some of those symptoms. I don't want her injuries to be too severe...or do I?
