Traumatic Head Injury

Traumatic head injury may involve damage to the brain and to the muscles and bones of the head and neck through a car accident, a fall, or other event. Injury may occur through a sudden physical assault on the head; a closed or penetrating head injury; a skull fracture; a contusion (shaking of the brain within the confines of the skull); or heavy bleeding into or around the brain. Symptoms can range from a mild concussion to the extremes of coma or even death.

The aftermath of head injury may involve headache, nausea, confusion or other cognitive problems, seizures, a change in personality, depression, irritability, and other emotional and behavioral problems.
