There are some cases where a serious vehicle accident, truck accident or slip and fall accident can result in traumatic brain injuries (TBI). With rapid acceleration or deceleration, the brain can move around inside of the skull and cause irreparable damage. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 1.7 million people suffer from a TBI each year. TBIs can cause a range of injuries from minor injuries, such as a concussion, to major injuries, such as a coma.
According to the CDC, there are two (2) types of severe traumatic brain injury, closed and penetrating. Closed TBI is an injury to the brain where the brain moves inside the skull. This is commonly caused by motor vehicle accidents and slip and falls. Penetrating TBI is an injury to the brain from an object entering the brain. This is commonly caused by a blow to the head from flying objects.
The results of these situations are often life-altering disability and even death in some cases. If you were involved in a serious car accident and you experience vomiting, headaches and a lack of motor coordination, then you may have a mild traumatic brain injury. A more serious brain injury will have symptoms such as unconsciousness, loss of consciousness for a short time or memory problems.
