Brain injuries are serious and complex injuries. Brain injuries come with various symptoms and disabilities which can be life altering. The emotional and financial repercussions of a brain injury can be overwhelming for you and your family.
The two types of head injuries are open and closed. An open injury occurs when the skull has been fractured and is usually the result of a fall or direct trauma to the head. A closed head injury can be more severe but less visual. An example of a closed head injury would be a concussion. A closed head injury does not include a fractured skull but can result in brain swelling. Both types of head injuries can prompt paralysis or death.
