When a person suffers from severe head injury at work, for instance, the head injury claims can be made. That is valid if the injury wasn’t persons fault. The head injury relates to traumas that are result of brain, skull or scalp damage. Usually, the head injuries are visible, but the severity of damage can be known best if it’s investigated by physician. The visible and also the inside injuries should be monitored, so the physician knows the exact patient’s condition. There are few types of injuries when talking about head injuries.
The most common one is concussion. It is also the minor type of injuries, but its symptoms should be monitored. There are also open and closed head injuries. The open head injury is a result of some force or pressure that is strong enough to make a skull’s displacement or a fracture. The fracture sometimes goes along with brain injury, but not necessarily. The closed type of injury doesn’t affect the skull. The closed head injury is the damage on the visible parts of head and doesn’t include fractures. The type of head injury claims depends on type of head injury and its greatness. There are some injuries that can cause headaches and vision problems, so the symptoms should also be included into a claim.
