Brain injuries come in all shapes and sizes. The catastrophic types of brain injuries may involve open head wounds and coma. Many brain injuries are not as dramatic as that however. Yet, they are still serious injuries and have a tremendous impact on victims’ lives.
The mechanism of a traumatic brain injury usually involves the brain being shaken or moved within the skull during an accident of some type. Concussions, falling and hitting your head, whiplash, hitting your head in the car during an accident or falling objects can all cause serious traumatic brain injuries.
