The most common cause of traumatic brain injuries is from car accidents.
To suffer from a closed head injury, you do not have to be going at a high rate of speed. When in a car accident, even a small impact can cause this type of injury. There are three processes including swelling, tearing and bruising and/or bleeding that are potential hazards. Atlanta, GA based injury lawyers will help you if you have sustained this type of injury in a car accident.
If you are traveling at 35 miles per hour and are hit head on by a car going the same speed, your brain will travel from 0 to 35 miles per hour in just an instant. The tissue of the brain that is soft hits the skull. This can cause tearing of blood vessels, in turn causing bleeding of the brain. More than bleeding can occur with a closed head injury. There could also be damage to the scalp and skull. Long term treatment may be necessary. It is important to know, that a closed head injury can result in seizures and epilepsy.
