Types of Head Injuries
Head injuries generally consist of two basic types: closed head injuries and open head injuries. A closed head injury refers to any head injury that does not break the accident victim’s skull, such as a concussion or some other internal head injury.
An open head injury, on the other hand, refers to a penetrating injury. Generally speaking, an open head injury occurs when an object pierces the accident victim’s skull and enters the brain, resulting in a serious and sometimes permanent injury.
Both closed and open head injuries can have serious consequences. In the worst-case scenario, a head injury could result in a coma that later leads to death. The experienced Red Deer head injury lawyers at Red Deer Personal Injury Law could help you pursue the compensation you need for your head injury.
Accidents That Can Result in Head Injuries
Head injuries can result from a variety of different accidents. Common accidents that could result in either an open or a closed-head injury include the following:
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Bicycle accidents
To recover compensation for injuries arising out of one of these accidents, the accident victim must demonstrate that the at-fault person owed a duty of care and violated that duty, resulting in the accident victim’s head injuries, damages, and other consequences.
