Suffering from a Traumatic Brain Injury
If you were involved in a serious accident in which you received a swift blow to the head, you may have had to receive treatment for a traumatic brain injury. These injuries differ from other injuries to the brain in the way in which they were received. Trauma to head can cause a degree of injury to the brain that is not seen in other cases of brain injury.
These injuries can be caused by both blows to the head or an object being propelled through the skull and entering the brain. Traumatic brain injury can range from very mild to incredibly severe. Mild cases can be recovered from without a trace of the original injury but serious cases can result in vegetative states or comas.
