Trauma to the head is categorized into a few broad areas. Penetrating trauma occurs when an object actually goes through the skull, while blunt head trauma occurs when the head receives a blow or strikes a surface.
If you had a concussion resulting from blunt trauma, it could be minor or major in severity. Minor trauma often leads to:
More severe injuries exhibit grave symptoms such as:
These kinds of symptoms can lead to permanent brain damage or even death.
Objects that actually pierce the skull do not always lead to death, even in extreme cases.
