There are two different types of head injuries:
- Open-head injuries – occur any time the skull in penetrated. This type of brain injury is very easy to detect, and the consequences are usually very serious or cause death.
- Closed-head injuries – occur when the brain is forced against the inside of the skull.
Closed-head injuries can be very difficult to diagnose because they can arise months after the incident. Brain injuries like this can usually be identified by changes in senses or behavior and other things, such as:
- Loss of Vision
- Loss of Memory
- Loss of Taste
- Aggressive Behavior
- Hearing Loss
- Attention Difficulties
- Bladder/Bowel Control Difficulties
- Poor Balance
- Poor Motor Skills
