Though there is often not any blood, closed head injuries can often be more dangerous than penetrating injuries because they are harder to identify quickly and usually involve severe trauma to the brain. Treatment of head injuries depends on the complexity and can involve everything from stitches, to brain surgery, to extensive rehabilitation therapy.

For instance, if a landlord's negligence led to your fall, or if the other driver in the car accident failed to yield.
