What is a Closed Head Injury?

The brain may be the most important organ in the body. It’s the organ that makes you who you are. Thinking, feeling, and remembering are all carried out in the brain. Any injury to your brain affects who you are in a way that can never really be explained or cured. If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury in an accident, you may be facing life-altering consequences.

It is important to know what is considered a catastrophic injury after an accident because these types of claims are handled differently from the average personal injury claims. An injury that is catastrophic can present unique challenges when compared to soft tissue injuries. The compensation and damage caps for these injuries may differ from other personal injury claims.
