Over half of all reported traumatic brain injuries are as a result of motor vehicle accidents. They occur as a result of any force that penetrates or fractures the skull such as striking the steering wheel or windshield. They can even result without any actual impact when the sheer force of the accident causes the brain to collide with the bone of the skull. Even a mild brain injury, otherwise known as a concussion, can lead to brain damage at the cellular level. Symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, depression, sleep issues, memory problems, mood swings and more. More serious brain injuries can include these symptoms as well as seizures, paralysis, impaired communication skills and many other cognitive and physical disabilities. Needless to say, a brain injury can be a life altering event.
