The Two Types of TBIs

There are two basic classifications of traumatic brain injury—closed and penetrating. A closed head injury occurs when a person’s head endures a blunt force from hitting or being hit by an object. A penetrating head injury is when an object breaks through the skull and enters the brain, usually at high speed. Both types of traumatic brain injury can have devastating and long-lasting effects, making immediate treatment and a proper diagnosis critical.

Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Convulsions
  • Slurred speech
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Stiff neck
  • Blurred or loss of vision
  • Behavioral issues
  • Emotional problems
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Coma
  • Death


Doctors receive extensive training to recognize and treat the effects of head injuries. Telling the difference between a “bump on the head” and potential brain hemorrhaging is a doctor’s job. Holding doctors and nurses accountable for poor care standards is Fieger Law’s. We are Michigan’s leading medical malpractice firm, and our legal team has won some of the largest malpractice verdicts of any firm in the country.

Our firm works to not only get justice for our clients, but to help them get the financial support they need to accommodate their injury for as long as it takes to heal. If you suffer from a permanent injury, then your compensation should demand the lifelong costs of treatment. Large verdicts like that are our hallmark.
