Types of Head Injuries

What are some of the causes of head injuries?

Head injuries may be caused by falling or flying objects, or by bumping the head against a fixed object. Protective helmets must do three things:

  • Resist penetration.
  • Absorb the shock of a blow.
  • Protect against electrical shock.

Head injuries may be prevented by the selection and use of appropriate head protection.
