Traumatic brain injuries are one of the most severe injuries that can be sustained as a result of a motor vehicle accident. They occur when the brain is injured by a sudden force, or trauma. The brain can be driven into the the skull by a sudden blow, or by the force of shaking or whiplash. In either case, the brain can suffer bruising and swelling, and in some cases the impact can be so strong that it tears blood vessels in the brain, causing intracranial bleeding. Traumatic brain injuries can cause serious, life-threatening events and can result in permanent irreversible damage to the brain. This in turn can lead to paralysis, seizures, blindness, memory loss, impaired communication skills and many other disabilities. The effect on quality of life can be profound and can include inability to work or even interact with friends and family.
