Brain injuries: After the accident

Brain injuries are one of the most devastating possible outcomes from a car, truck or motorcycle accident. The brain is responsible for all of the body's functions — both physical and mental — meaning a traumatic brain injury can have extensive repercussions, from being unable to walk or talk normally to experiencing problems with memory loss.

What can be done to treat traumatic brain injuries?

A traumatic brain injury or TBI occurs when an external force disrupts the normal function of the brain. Normally, that external force is a severe bump, jolt or blow to the head. However, TBIs can also be caused by something penetrating the head and causing damage to the brain.

What are some important facts about traumatic brain injury?

As the title implies, traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain experiences a sudden trauma. According to the National Institutes of Medicine, TBIs can occur in two ways, both of which are classified by the extent of damage done to the brain: mild, moderate or severe. The first way that a TBI can occur is when a victim's head is struck by some sudden external force. An example of this might be during a car accident when a victim's head smashes violently against the steering wheel.

Head injuries are common in motor vehicle accidents

Many motor vehicle accidents in the state of North Carolina are considered minor, meaning that nobody involved was seriously injured. On the other side of things, there are accidents in which one or more person suffers a serious injury, which can lead to many complications in the future.
