Examining the Causes & Types of Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are often the result of a sudden and forceful
trauma that causes damage to the brain. This is commonly the result of a
motor vehicle accident, industrial or other workplace accident, slip and fall accident, or violent assault.
There are five types of traumatic brain injuries, including:
Concussion: Caused by a whiplash injury or a direct blow to the head
Contusion: Bruised and bleeding tissue that usually requires surgical removal
Coup-contrecoup: The force of an impact can cause injury to both sides of the brain
Diffuse axonal: Usually caused by violent rotating or shaking of the head
Penetration: Caused by foreign objects that penetrate through the skull
Depending on the severity of the injury, damage to the brain can severely
interfere with a person’s ability to function, and could even leave
the victim in a permanent vegetative state. If you or someone you love
