Types Of Head Injuries

A head injury is obviously more serious than just a bump on the head. A head injury may also coincide with a brain injury, neck injury, or even a back and spinal injury. Head injuries may not have outward or physical symptoms, yet they can be deadly. Head injuries may lead to very serious complications such as:

Lifelong issues with headaches
Loss of sensation, hearing, vision, taste, or smell
Speech and language problems

Do not take a head injury lightly. Even if you haven’t lost consciousness or displayed external symptoms, underlying hidden damage may exist. The two types of head injuries are listed below:

Closed head injury: This type of injury occurs when the head is thrown forward or backward at a very fast speed and then suddenly comes to a halt. This causes the brain to strike the hard skull bone and may cause brain bruising or a brain bleed. Also, this may happen as a result of a driver hitting his or her head on the steering wheel or windshield. There is no wound that causes an opening to the skull with this type of injury. The most common type of closed head injury is a concussion.
Open head injury occurs when an object penetrates through the skull and causes an opening. This may result from windshield fragments, an object within the vehicle, or striking an object after being ejected from the vehicle. This type of injury is more serious than a closed-head injury and may lead to severe brain trauma. The main concern with an open head injury is the possibility of infection leading to permanent brain damage.
