What Classifies As a Head Injury?
A head injury, otherwise classified as a brain injury, always begins with physical trauma to the head due to a violent blow or jolt from shaking or spinning. An object penetrating the skull can also cause a traumatic injury to the brain. The consequences can be serious and, in its most severe case can lead to life-long brain dysfunction.
Other serious traumatic brain injuries can entail bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage. They can occur as a result of a car accident, slip, and fall, or a sporting accident. A head injury can have a profound effect on the quality of life, including the inability to work, inability to interact with family and friends, and loss of normal body skills.
If the wrongdoing of another party has caused your injury, a head injury attorney can help you get the appropriate compensation taking into account missed time at work, medical bills, and suffering.
