Types of Brain Injuries in Mercer County, New Jersey
Brain injuries are generally classified as either closed head injuries or open head injuries. If an external force impacts the head but does not actually break the skull, the result is a closed head injury. By contrast, if an external force impacts the head and caused the skull to move out of the place, the result is an open head injury.
Within these general classifications, there are several specific types of brain injuries, including:
- Concussion: Any kind of contact or blow to the head can cause a concussion, which is the most common type of brain injury.
- Cerebral Contusion: Bleeding in the brain can cause a bruise of the brain tissue.
- Coup-Contrecoup Injury: A coupe-contrecoup injury typically occurs when a forceful impact to the head moves the brain and causes it to slam into the opposite side of the skull.
- Subdural Hematoma: Blood clots are often caused when a tear in the veins or arteries leads to collection of blood on the surface of the brain.
Many times, the most serious traumatic brain injuries are sustained by car accident victims. Car accident head injuries often cause bruising, bleeding, and tearing of the brain tissue. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important that you seek immediate medical attention because brain damage can result in long-term health complications or death.
Auto Accidents Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries in Princeton, NJ
A violent impact to the head or body can cause a traumatic brain injury which disrupts the brain’s normal functions. One of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries in New Jersey is an auto accident. That’s because motor vehicle crashes often result in severe head trauma. Rear-end collisions are particularly dangerous because the brain can be thrown forward and then backward due to whiplash. The traumatic blow to the head can result in a closed head injury that has long-term health consequences for the victim. Additionally, the deployment of an airbag in an auto accident can also cause head injuries if the airbag is deployed with excessive force.
