At Bonifield & Rosenstengel we have more than 45 years combined experience in handling major traumatic injury cases. We know that many brain injuries resulting from Closed Head Injuries often occur in seemingly harmless incidents, such as falls or mere strikes to the head, as well as severely traumatic ones, like car and other motor vehicle accidents.

Because in a Closed Head Injury there is no visible fracture to the skull, people often think the victim is okay. However, in such cases the brain can be compressed against the side of the skull due to the force of the blow causing abrasions. Worse yet, the brain could be swelling within the confined space of the skull, slowly stifling the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.

Seek Medical Attention For Any Trauma To The Head
