When a person receives a blow to the head, whether in the sports field or in a car, bike or construction accident, the brain is shaken within the skull. Factors that impact the severity of a traumatic brain injury include the shape and stiffness of the object striking the brain, where the impact occurred on the head, the force of the impact as well as its duration.

Generally, a brain injury happens in three partsThe first injury: These types of injuries happen in the first seconds following an accident. With closed head injuries, the brain is jarred in either a rocking or rotating motion following a rapid acceleration or deceleration, such as those that occur in an auto accident. The brain moves within the skull, pulling, twisting and tearing nerve fibers. Arteries and veins in the brain itself can be torn or rupture causing intracranial bleeding. Open or penetrating wounds occur when the brain is directly damaged by an object, such as a brake lever from a motorcycle or a construction tool.

A brain could also suffer a crushing injury when it is compressed between two rigid structures, such as a car and the road. The second injury: These injuries typically take place in the minutes and hours after the initial accident. They are sustained when the brain is deprived of sufficient oxygen, when blood impedes the airway or when there is serious blood loss.

The third injury: This last group of injuries takes place anytime from the first minutes and hours after an accident to weeks later. Leaking blood can cause edema, or swelling, within the brain. Because there is no place for the blood to go, pressure is built up, and circulation of blood within the brain is limited. Blood clots, also known as hematomas, can happen after mild concussions, but can cause strokes and other catastrophic damage to the brain.
