Even a minor head injury can have a significant effect on your life. A head injury can lead to loss of consciousness, changes in behavior and irritability, memory loss and even coma, preventing you from participating in work and other activities.
"Head injury" is a broad term that describes many different injuries that may happen to the scalp, skull, brain and tissues of the head.
