Any blow to the head can cause a closed head injury. Symptoms can include dizziness, blurred vision, mental confusion, slurred speech, loss of balance, nausea and loss of consciousness.
The most common type of closed head injury is a concussion, but brain bleeds, brain swelling and life-threatening intracranial pressure can occur. As Virginia personal injury lawyers, my law firm colleagues and I most often help people who suffered closed head injuries as a result of
- Car crashes,
- Motorcycle crashes,
- Bike accidents,
- Pedestrian accidents,
- Truck accidents,
- Boat and personal watercraft accidents, and
- Slips and falls.
