What is a Brain Injury?
A "brain injury" is any injury to the brain itself or to the skull and other parts of the head that protect the brain. The brain is an incredibly complex organ that controls all of the body's functions. Because of this, even a seemingly minor brain injury can cause a wide range of symptoms. The symptoms may appear immediately or they may not appear for days, weeks, or even years after the injury.
Common symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Blurred vision
- Weakness or numbness in the body
- Balance problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory problems
- Difficulty communicating
- Personality changes
- Difficulty sleeping
There are two types of brain injuries: open and closed brain injuries.
An open brain injury, also known as a penetrating or focal brain injury, occurs when an object pierces the skull and directly damages brain tissue. It typically involves a visible wound or fracture in the skull, which allows external objects to enter the brain. Examples include gunshot wounds, stabbings, or accidents where the skull is fractured. In open brain injuries, there is direct contact between the brain and the external environment, leading to localized damage.
A closed brain injury, also referred to as a non-penetrating or diffuse brain injury, occurs without any external penetration of the skull. It is usually caused by a sudden impact or blow to the head, which leads to brain tissue damage. Closed brain injuries are more common than open brain injuries and can result from various incidents, such as falls, motor vehicle accidents, or sports-related concussions.

- Car crashes
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
