Today we learned from Bob Saget’s family that his cause of death was head trauma. In a statement, the family explained that the authorities “concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep.”
Saget is not the first star to have a head injury lead to death. In 2009, actress Natasha Richardson was in a ski accident (wearing a helmet). She hit her head during a fall, but was talking and feeling okay after the accident, so they sent the ambulance away. She later fell into a coma and died.
Head injuries are nothing to ignore. If you are in an accident and you hit your head, please have a medical evaluation. Getting to a medical professional in the critical time immediately after an accident could save your life.
If you experience a head injury from a fall, worksite accident, or car crash, contact the lawyers at The Coppola Firm to help you recover from those at fault.
