Types of Brain Injuries
Any kind of trauma to the head or neck region can cause the brain to bruise, bleed, tear, or swell and may result in paralysis, loss of consciousness, and even wrongful death.
There are two general types of head injuries: open and closed. An open injury means the skull has been fractured. A closed head injury, although the skull is not fractured, can be more serious than an open injury due to the possibility of brain swelling and the formation of blood clots inside the skull.
Serious brain injuries can result from:
- Falls on a dangerous premises
- Auto accidents
- Sports injuries
- Work-related accidents
