Types of Skull Fractures

Skull fractures can be closed (non-punctured skin) or compound (punctured skin) and range significantly in severity. Typically, if a victim’s skull fracture is treated right after the accident, minor to mild skull fractures can heal in a matter of weeks with medication and proper treatment. However, in more severe situations, skull fractures can require surgery and intensive care to heal properly.

Ranging from minor to severe, the most common skull fracture claims include the following fractures:

  • Minor – a broken bone, no damage to the skin, or bleeding
  • Linear – the most common type of skull fracture. A linear fracture is a mild, straight break in the bone, with no disruption to the positioning of it
  • Depressed – a break to the skull bone that causes part of the victim’s head to depress or “sink in.” Depending on what caused the accident and where the fracture occurred on the victim’s head, depressed skull fractures can range from mild to severe
  • Basilar – a break in the bone that’s at the base of a person’s skull. Basilar injuries are the most severe type of fracture due to the risk of losing cerebrospinal fluid which stems from the brain

Regardless of the extent of your injuries, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention after sustaining head trauma. Without prompt medical treatment, a skull fracture will continue to worsen and won’t heal properly. Not allowing a fracture to heal completely makes the area more susceptible to injury in the future, and not getting timely medical treatment can increase the risk of damaged brain cells and blood vessel ruptures.

Skull Fracture Claims | Skull Fracture Lawyers in St. Louis

If you suffer head trauma, it’s crucial to take note of immediate symptoms that you have following the incident, get treatment for your injuries, and obtain a copy of your medical report. After seeking medical attention, it’s essential to collect evidence (witness reports, a copy of the police report, photos of the scene of the accident, etc.). Filing a skull fracture claim requires adequate knowledge of Missouri’s injury statute and negligence laws, but experience negotiating with insurance companies.

Bringing a strong skull fracture claim is only half the battle in recovering compensation for your damages. After submitting a claim, the other party’s insurance company can choose to accept or deny your claim based on the evidence available. If your claim is approved, it’s then the job of your Skull Fracture Lawyer in St. Louis to negotiate a high settlement that includes compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. Without a lawyer by your side representing your claim, this leaves the negotiations up to you, which can result in a lower or significantly reduced amount of compensation for your injuries.
