A closed head injury occurs when a person receives an impact to the head, but the skull does not fracture or displace. If the brain swells and has no place to expand, this can cause brain tissues to compress, causing further injury.
Closed-head injuries, and other forms of mild traumatic brain injury, account for about 75 percent of the estimated 1.7 million brain injuries that occur annually in the United States. The annual financial burden of head injuries is estimated to be up to $100 billion. Closed-head injuries can range from mild injuries to debilitating traumatic brain injuries.
