What are Common Types of Head Injuries?
Common types of head injuries include traumatic brain injuries, tears of the brain, skull fractures, scalp injuries, concussions, nerve cell damage and blood swelling between the brain and the skull.
Traumatic brain injuries are the most severe type of head injury and require intensive rehabilitation. A traumatic brain injury is known as a TBI, or intracranial injury, and occurs when the brain is struck externally. Traumatic brain injuries can result in disability and death. Survivors are left to cope with physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioral effects. Physical, speech and other types of therapy often continue throughout life.
Other head injuries, such as skull fractures, may exist independently or in conjunction with brain injuries.
Who May Be Liable in Head Injury Cases?
Depending on how a head injury is sustained, liable parties may include property owners, employers, drivers at fault in motor vehicle accidents and physicians involved in medical malpractice.
What to Do If You Have Sustained a Head Injury?
If you or a loved one have sustained a head injury, consult a doctor or visit an emergency room immediately. Follow your doctor's instructions and ask about all the necessary testing, including MRI scans, CT scans and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
