In the case of a closed head injury, there is not an observable head wound. The lack of a physical injury can lead some individuals to believe that there is no danger from the injury. However, closed head injuries can be just as dangerous, if not more dangerous, than those resulting from open head wounds. When you have suffered any type of head injury in an accident, it is important to immediately seek medical attention in order to determine the extent of the injury and obtain proper treatment.

Closed Head Injury Symptoms
Anyone who has contact with an accident victim should be very observant, as it is often close family members and friends who may recognize changes that indicate a head injury. Symptoms of a closed head injury may not be apparent to the victim, but they may be obvious to others around the victim, including:
- Mood and personality changes
- Memory loss
- Slurred speech or difficulty in speaking
- Difficulties with motor control
Fatal Head Injuries
In some instances, a closed head injury may be so severe that an individual may die, even with prompt and proper treatment. If you have lost a loved one due to a closed head injury or other brain injury, our firm can help you understand wrongful death claims and possibly file a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf in order to seek justice and compensation for the loss you have suffered.
