Closed head injuries differ from penetrating head injuries in that the skull remains intact after the impact. In these traumatic brain injuries, the brain is jarred from excessive force or shaken from something like whiplash or a rear-end accident. These types of injuries are often caused by the actions or negligence of another, and most frequently occur due to traffic accidents, sports activities, and slip and falls. Though the skull stays intact, the victim may experience serious physical, cognitive, and emotional problems after an accident, potentially leading to debilitating, lifelong conditions.

Have you or someone you know experienced a closed head injury that was caused by the negligent actions of another in Memphis? If so, the victim may be able to file a lawsuit to reclaim compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • Types of Closed Head Injuries

    Over the years, we have found that these are some of the most common problems associated with closed head injuries:

    • Concussion: Defined as a temporary loss of brain function due to head trauma without significant structural damage, a concussion can range from mild to very severe, and can include loss of consciousness. It has been speculated that repeated concussions can lead to certain degenerative brain diseases like second impact syndrome and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
    • Cerebral Contusion: Cerebral contusions are bruises on the brain tissue that result from the brain hitting the sides of the skull. These injuries are more localized than concussions, which generally occur in most or all of the brain.
    • Intracranial Bleeding (Brain Hemorrhage): If any blood vessels in the brain break, the blood bursts out and causes localized bleeding within the brain's tissues. This causes a type of stroke called a cerebral hemorrhage, which requires immediate medical attention or it may result in death.
    • Intracranial Hematoma: Intracranial hematoma occurs when a blood vessel ruptures within the brain or between the brain and the skull, allowing blood to collect and thus compress brain tissue. This injury often requires immediate medical treatment because the brain is not able to remove the amount of excess fluid.
    • Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI): A DAI indicates permanent and widespread damage to the brain's nerves. Often diffuse axonal injuries lead to a coma, after which many victims do not regain consciousness and remain in a persistent vegetative state.

    It is important to remember that while some of these injuries sound more severe than others, even concussions and other relatively minor head traumas can lead to far more serious and chronic medical conditions like depression, decreased mental capabilities, loss of memory, degenerative brain disease, sleeplessness, post-concussion syndrome, persistent headaches, second-impact syndrome, CTE, Parkinson's disease, among other devastating injuries. 

  • How an Attorney Can Help

    Some victims of closed head injuries require long-term rehabilitation and care, and may not be able to return to work. Even those with only mild brain injuries may notice problems performing routine tasks and socializing as they once did. These problems often have a serious impact on an individual's physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing.

    Our experienced Memphis brain injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan work hard to recover just compensation that will help the victim move forward and receive quality medical care, while making sure the responsible parties are held accountable for the victim's injuries.
