Facing A Lifetime of Rehabilitation

Open head injuries can occur in almost any type of accident in which the victim suffers a violent blow to the head, causing the skull to fracture. Understandably, such traumatic head injuries have a high mortality rate, especially if an object pierces and exits the skull. Infection, swelling, and excessive blood loss can also cause the open head injury to become more destructive or fatal.

Common permanent effects of open head injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Loss of motor skills
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Personality changes
  • Behavioral problems
  • Paralysis
  • Memory loss
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Depression
  • Coma
  • Dementia

Even a minor skull fracture can lead to significant brain damage due to the sensitive and complex makeup of the human brain, and the surviving victim may require intensive medical treatment, such as multiple surgical procedures, MRI, CT, or ICP scans, and aggressive antibiotics, in addition to years of physical therapy and assisted living.

Unfortunately, drastic and long-term treatment for an open head injury can quickly become expensive, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Through a successful personal injury claim, it is possible to gain the appropriate compensation to afford a lifetime of quality care.
