Any blunt force blow to the head can result in serious damage to the brain. Even apparently minor head injuries can create serious problems for the victim, especially if he or she has a prior history of concussion. To help make sure that your claim for head and brain injuries is properly evaluated and presented for compensation, contact Levine & Wiss for a free consultation.

In the case of closed head injuries accompanied by other fractures or internal injuries, the head injury might not even be considered as a major element of the overall trauma, until mood changes and personality disorders become apparent later.
In the most severe brain injury cases, most often involving skull fractures and gross trauma to the brain itself, the loss of cognitive function, memory, or motor skills can represent a serious and permanent disability that will require long-term care and treatment. Less obviously severe brain injuries can also cause problems for the victim.
