A head injury can be an injury to the scalp, the skull, or the brain. Even in cases where the skull is not fractured, the brain can be injured through the forces involved in an acceleration, an impact or a blow to the head
Head injuries are a common result of car accidents and traffic accidents involving motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians where negligence or misconduct has occurred. These injuries may be external or internal, where the brain is injured to some extent, from a minor concussion from which the injured person will make a full recovery to permanent injuries involving brain damage. Symptoms and the effects of head injuries can occur immediately or take hours or even days to develop. That is why anyone who sustains a head injury in an accident should seek medical attention and should be supervised for several days so that prompt medical care can be sought should symptoms begin to manifest.
