Car Crash Head Injuries
Car crash head injuries can range from minor to severe. They may be closed injuries, in which the skin is not broken, or open injuries where the skull is damaged or punctured. In a car accident, they may be caused by the driver striking the steering wheel, impact with the windshield or with another part of the vehicle. Anytime anyone suffers a head injury in a car collision, they should go to the emergency room or doctor to have it assessed. Some car crash head injuries have delayed symptoms, so care is important right away to establish a record in the event compensation is pursued.
