Head trauma or a head injury is defined as any injury that causes damage to a person’s head, scalp, or brain. Most head injuries are further categorized as open or closed. An open head injury is when a person is hit by an object that penetrates the scalp, skull, or brain. A closed injury is when a person is struck by an object in the head, but the object doesn’t penetrate through.
When a person sustains head trauma, they will usually have either a concussion (common traumatic brain injury) or a contusion (bruise located on the surface of the brain). Both a concussion and a contusion can be extremely severe and lead to life-threatening side effects for the sufferer if not immediately diagnosed and treated.

People who sustain head trauma or a serious head injury are likely to develop numerous mental, physical, and emotional side effects. These side effects may include, but are not limited to:
