Common Types of Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can take many forms and can cause everything from headaches to a coma. Some of the most common traumatic brain injuries include:
- Diffuse axonal injury, and
- Skull fracture.
Brain injuries can happen in one of two ways. The first is a closed brain injury, which means nothing penetrates the skull. These brain injuries occur when the head moves back and forth rapidly and the brain is shaken or collides with the skull. This type of injury is common in rear-end car accidents.
A penetrating brain injury happens when something breaks the skull and hits the brain. A typical example is a gunshot wound that pierces the skull.
Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can occur in several different ways. Some of the most common accident types that cause TBIs include:
- Car accidents,
- Pedestrian accidents,
- Bicycle accidents,
- Motorcycle accidents,
- Truck accidents,
- Electric scooter accidents,
- Workplace accidents,
- Slip and falls,
- Defective products,
