Head trauma can change a person’s life forever.
I will go so far as to say that serious head injury can change a person—who they are and what they do—forever.
In some serious cases, those who have sustained serious head injury find themselves living with a stranger, and loved ones find themselves living with a stranger, too.
This is nothing to take lightly. And it is crucial to insist upon thorough medical treatment.
Head trauma refers to any type of injury that results in damage to an individual’s brain or head. Head trauma is a very serious condition that can lead to a number of crippling or disabling side effects, such as:

Open Head Injury v. Closed Head Injury
When an individual suffers head trauma, their injury is usually classified as either an open head injury or a closed head injury. Open head injuries are caused by sharp objects penetrating the skull. A closed head injury usually occurs when the brain moves back and forth due to rapid movement caused by excessive force, as is the case in an auto accident or slip and fall.
