Youngstown Car Accident Lawyers
A closed head injury is an injury that does not involve any fracture or penetration to the skull. These injuries occur when the moving head is rapidly stopped, such as when hitting a windshield or a blunt object during a car, truck or motorcycle accident, causing the brain to smash into the hard bony surface inside the skull.

Types of Closed Head Injuries
Our personal injury attorneys have the experience to handle closed head injuries of all types, including:
- Concussion: This is a common closed head injury that results in an interruption of normal brain function. Many reported concussions are the result of auto accidents.
- Intracranial hematoma: This is a medical condition in which a ruptured blood vessel causes a pool of blood to form. Subdural hematoma and epidural hematoma are two types of intracranial hematoma that can result from automobile accidents.
- Cerebral contusion: This is essentially a bruise to the brain tissue. The fact that it is localized makes it different from concussions.
- Diffuse axonal injury: These injuries frequently result from car, truck or motorcycle accidents and often lead to comas and permanent brain damage.
