Closed Head Injuries
Injured? Call a California Personal Injury Lawyer.
An acquired brain injury may either be classified as a closed head injury or open head injury, depending on whether the skull is penetrated. A blow to the head or a sudden and violent motion that causes the brain to collide with the skull may cause a closed head injury. Although the brain is not penetrated due to closed head injury, the extent of damage to the brain may still be extremely severe. A closed head injury may lead to bruising, swelling or bleeding of the brain, leading to a concussion, coma, or even death.
Causes and Consequences of a Closed Head Injury
Closed head injury may be caused by an auto accident, fall, sports injury, or an attack or assault. Depending on the severity of brain injury, a victim may suffer from loss of consciousness, headaches, dizziness, nausea, speech and language problems, cognitive difficulties, loss of motor skills or control of bodily functions, memory loss, and convulsions. The outcome of an injury of this kind will vary greatly from person to person. In some cases, a full recovery may be expected in a few days or weeks, but in other situations damage will be irreparable.
