Types of head injuries could include anything from concussions to traumatic brain injuries and similar health conditions could take a significant toll on one’s life. Similar incidents could also lead to major bone fractures that may prompt a need for emergency medical procedures.

Such issues could affect a person’s mobility and ability to perform everyday tasks, or even lead to partial or complete paralysis.
