Car accident-related head injuries can vary from a mild concussion or bruise all the way to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that leaves victims with permanent brain damage. An injury to the head can even result in a wrongful death. In some cases, accident victims may not realize the seriousness of a head injury until a doctor's examination reveals the full extent of the damage long after the accident occurred. You may be entitled to compensation if your crash was caused through no fault of your own.
Head injuries in car accidents can occur if an occupant's head strikes a hard object, like a window, steering wheel or the dashboard. There are different types of brain injuries. If the skull is penetrated, the victim will have an "open-head injury." In other cases, the injured person might have a "closed-head injury" in which there is no skull penetration, but there may be internal bleeding. Both closed- and open-head injuries can be dangerous. While an open-head injury is obviously a serious injury that requires immediate medical attention, a closed-head injury should never be taken lightly. You might not initially realize the seriousness of the injury, which could be fatal if left untreated.
