Closed Head Injury

Closed head injury occurs when impact to the head from an outside force does not penetrate the skull, such as a bullet, or result in other forms of localized injury. Injuries can be caused by the head striking the windshield or dashboard during a car accident, direct impact from falls or other blunt head trauma.

At Parker & Frey PLLC, we have been helping closed head injury victims throughout North Carolina for nearly 30 years. Our attorneys can assist with legal claims to cover medical expenses and other damages related to the following:

  • Primary brain damage (immediately present)
    • Skull fractures
    • Contusions — bruises at the place of impact
    • Blood clots (hematomas) in the brain or between the brain and skull
    • Lacerations or tears in the blood vessels of the brain
    • Nerve damage
  • Secondary brain damage (evolves over time)
    • Edema (brain swelling)
    • Intracranial pressure — increasing pressure inside the skull
    • Intracranial infection
    • Epilepsy
    • Hematoma
    • Anemia
    • Irregular blood pressure
    • Fever
    • Cardiac or lung changes
    • Carbon dioxide levels — too high or too low
    • Abnormal coagulation of the blood
