What types of accidents can cause a closed head injury? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

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.
