Closed Head Injuries May be More Dangerous Than You Think! Here’s Why

Many individuals think of brain injuries as those that cause direct and apparent injury to the brain or skull that covers it. There’s another type of traumatic brain injury which may not seem apparent at first on account of the fact that the victim shows no outward symptoms, and this is known as a closed brain injury. These types of injuries usually occur due to the brain ricocheting inside the skull, causing bruises and bleeds inside the brain itself. Closed brain injuries are just as serious as open brain injuries where an object punctures the brain on account of the fact that they may cause significant cognitive and emotional impairment. If you sustained a closed brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for financial compensation for things such as the cost of medical care both present and future, lost wages, property damages and so much  more, and we’re here to help with that.

Here are some of the warning signs of a closed brain injury:

  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Sleep issues
  • Personality changes
  • Nausea
  • Speech issues
  • Vomiting
  • Depression
  • Agitation
  • Difficulty walking and using one’s hands
  • Severe fatigue

Closed head injuries are usually seen in football players and other individuals that participate in contact sports. This is because the brain can be jarred within the skull multiple times over a number of years while playing these violent sports, causing something called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE, which can leave the sports player with a host of symptoms that touch on their emotional, cognitive and mental health for a lifetime.

Closed head injuries may also be caused by the following:

  1. Assault
  2. Bicycle accidents
  3. Automobile accidents
  4. Shaken baby syndrome
  5. Sports injuries
  6. Falls
