Car Accidents and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Car accident injuries can be quite serious, especially if you or a loved one sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Centers for Disease Control, an estimated 1.7 million Americans suffer this type of injury annually. Injuries can range from “mild” to “severe.” Any hit, bump or jolt of the head can cause a traumatic brain injury.
A car accident can cause two types of head injureist: closed or open injuries. An open injury would be caused by a laceration. A closed injury, like the kind when your head hits the steering wheel, for example, is when your brain is jostled around within the skull.
Concussions are now classified as TBIs and can be quite serious.
