HOW DO TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES HAPPEN?
Traffic accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the United States, but brain injuries can also happen in swimming pools, contact sports, and slip-and-fall accidents. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is usually caused by a severe blow to the head, when a victim’s brain is stricken by an object such as windows or when the force of an accident causes the brain to shift aggressively in the skull, even though there wasn’t a direct impact. Damage to the brain can happen at the very moment of the accident, or this damage can progress over time as tissues expand and bleed in the brain.
