Of all injuries, damage to the brain and spinal cord are among the most serious. These vital components of the central nervous system are the seat of so many functions, from thought and personality to movement and mobility.
Trauma to the brain or spinal cord can result from any number of accidents, particularly traffic accidents. The human body simply isn’t equipped to deal with the sheer force involved in car crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents and the like. Even safety measures like seat belts, air bags and helmets may not be enough to shield you from harm.
Damage to the spinal cord can result in nerve damage, inhibited mobility and partial or total paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia). Traumatic brain injuries can take many forms, including:
- Closed-head injuries
- Penetrating brain injuries
- Skull fractures (open TBI)
