Open Head Injuries
Pursuing justice for victims of open head injuries
A severe force to the head that penetrates the skull can be categorized as an open-head injury. Typically a crushing blow to the head might penetrate the skull and damage the brain tissue. (A closed-head injury, on the other hand, involves a blow to the head that does not penetrate the skull).
Open-head injuries are extremely serious and potentially fatal. Treatment typically involves prolonged hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation. Typically, a victim of an open-head injury will face lifelong challenges, or a shortened lifespan. An open-head injury may be a precursor to a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you or a loved one sustained an open-head injury, it's important to discuss your legal options with a North Carolina personal injury lawyer prepared to listen to you and discuss your legal options. Call 1-866-900-7078 today for a free case evaluation.
