An injury that is caused via a sudden or violent blow to the head is called Traumatic Brain Injury. While a blunt force trauma can create long-term damages within your skull, a sharp force trauma will almost certainly make you bleed and seek for immediate medical attention.

Whichever the type of infliction maybe, these sort of traumas can cause your brain to become damaged and you may not experience the symptoms immediately. The injury may surface after weeks or even months later. Insurance companies usually try to settle for these types of injuries quickly to escape from liabilities of having to cover long term medical expenses, but you should not let that happen. Consult with a specialized doctor, wait for a few days before you claim your settlement.
