As many Ohio residents know, traumatic brain injury may result from a blow to the head. Car accidents are common causes of such injuries, and skull fractures often occur. The extent of injury as well as the type of fracture is related to the intensity of the blow and the area of the head where it occurred. Skull fractures might be closed or open. The difference is whether the skin is broken. However, even closed fractures may result in brain trauma. One main consideration is the area of the cranial impact. In some parts of the skull, fracture is more likely to occur.
