Severe head injury and traumatic brain injuries are an unfortunate but common cause of disability in the United States. Although they can be as minor as a bump or shallow cut on the head, injuries to the head and brain can also have lifelong consequences.

Brain Damage Caused by an Accident

There are different types of brain damage that can be caused by factors both inside and outside the body. An acquired brain injury might be the effect of a stroke or brain tumor, as opposed to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that results from an external physical force. TBIs are common in accidents, such as auto collisions, falls, violent attacks, and sports incidents. Within the traumatic category, there are different types of brain damage that can result and have a considerable impact on the life of the victim. If you’ve suffered brain damage in accident, it’s important to discuss your options for recovering compensation with a Maryland traumatic brain injury attorney.

Types of Brain Damage Caused By an Accident

A victim may suffer from various brain conditions when injured in an accident, but some of the more common types of damage include:

This is the most common type of traumatic brain injury, which a victim receives when the brain sustains trauma from an impact or sudden movement. The blood vessels in the brain can become distended and there may be damage to cranial nerves. Plus, the effects of a concussion can lead to temporary or permanent damage to the brain. Concussions are especially dangerous because a person may remain conscious, so he or she may not consider medical treatment.

Another type of brain damage is a contusion, which is bleeding in the braid; essentially, the condition a type of bruise. Contusions occur most often when a blunt instrument is used to strike the head or when a person’s head collides with an object. In more severe cases where the contusion is large, surgery may be necessary to remove the damaged tissue.

When an object actually penetrates the tissues of the brain, the damage can be critical. A penetrating injury in an accident may be caused by a sharp object that strikes the skull, forcing hair, skin, bones, and debris into the brain.

The Impact of Brain Damage for an Accident Victim

The effects of brain damage due to an accident vary based upon the region of the brain affected. If the injury is to the brain stem, the victim may have problems with concentration and balance. Damage to the temporal lobes may result in hearing and vision issues, while harm to the frontal lobe can be more extensive. A victim may suffer from memory problems, motor skills dysfunction, and problems with word association.
