Serious Head Injury Lawsuits
Of all the areas of the body, the head is one the most vulnerable and also one of the most likely areas to be injured. Not only is there the danger of brain injury, head trauma can result in loss of the majority of your senses – taste, smell, hearing and vision. A serious head injury caused by a faulty or defective product may lead to permanent disabilities, extensive medical bills, income loss and undue pain or suffering. If you or a loved one has sustained head trauma caused by a defective product, you may have a head injury legal claim.
Due to the position of the head, it can be an easy target for injury. Falls, car accidents, sports collisions and flying objects can all cause injury to the head. If a nail gun misfires and a nail punctures the head, it can result in serious injury or death. A defective ladder that causes a fall can lead to traumatic brain injury that can have long-term cognitive damages. When a product is designed poorly or a manufacturer defect makes it unsafe when used as intended, the designer or manufacturer of the product may be liable if injuries occur, especially ones as serious as head injuries.
Types of Head Injuries
There is a reason that many types of “safety gear” are for the head. Goggles, ear protections, helmets and even mouth guards are all meant to protect the head and face from harm. Unfortunately, when a product unexpectedly causes injuries to the head, many people are not wearing any type of protective safety gear. Injuries can include:
- Eye trauma, eye fractures, vision loss or blindness
- Broken or fractured nose
- Torn or severed ears
- Fractured skull
- Brain injuries
- Broken jaw, teeth or soft tissue mouth injuries
