Head Injury Types
A head injury is when something causes a trauma and injures the scalp, skull or brain. Externally, it is possible to see the inflicted wound of a head injury where the scalp has been hurt. Other injuries to the head are not always visible and will need to be seen by a medical professional to confirm the result of a physical force with the head. Some symptoms can develop over a period of time and will need close supervision. The three types of head injury are defined as:
An open head injury is where the skull is fractured to the brain. It takes quite a force to cause such an injury but does not automatically comprise of a brain injury.
This head injury is again a force to the head but is not strong enough to cause a fracture or affect the skull’s structure.
Concussion is a more minor and common head injury. Close monitoring is required as the brain could develop in a serious injury.
What Causes a Head Injury?
There are many reasons why you may have a head injury and each case we deal with will have a different outcome due to individual circumstances. A potential claim will investigate how the head injury happened and what caused it to establish accountability. The main causes of a head injury are:
- Work accidents – falling from a ladder
- Accidents in a public place – tripping over a substantial kerb
- Criminal assault – physical confrontation from a member of the public
- Medical negligence – failure to detect tumours or infections
