What does Closed Head Injury mean?

A closed head injury is a type of traumatic brain injury which is caused when the brain rapidly accelerates and decelerates within the skull, causing damage to the brain. Common causes of closed head injuries can be caused when a driver or passenger's head makes contact with the steering wheel or the door in a car accident or from blunt force trauma if an individual is struck by a baseball bat, rock or they hit their head against the ground.

Drivers who have suffered a closed head injury in a car accident should contact a personal injury lawyer to find out the potential lifelong costs of this debilitating injury. If a driver's close head injury is caused by the negligence of another driver they may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
