What types of head injuries are there?

If you are like most people in Ohio, when you hear that somebody has experienced a head injury you may automatically worry about the possibility of long-term consequences or even death. Certainly this can happen with a head injury and for those people who have long-term effects from an injury, the level of severity may vary greatly from somewhat mild to very extreme.

Healthline.com, explains that an injury to the head may be classified as closed such in the case of an external scalp wound or a concussion or open such as when an object hits and manages to puncture the skull and enter the brain cavity. Either type of injury may be serious and even life-threatening. Motor vehicle accidents and falls are two things associated with many head injuries that involve a blow to the head.

Swelling, bleeding in the brain, blood clotting outside of a blood vessel and the loss of consciousness are just some of the symptoms that may be associated with a head injury. Visual disturbances, inability to balance properly, nausau and vomiting and even seizures may also indicate the presence of some type of trauma to the brain. Medical intervention is important for people with head injuries especially if the person is disoriented, seems confused or is not responsive.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is meant to help educate residents in Ohio about the many different types of head injuries that may occur and what may be associated with so many of them.
