Potential Head Injuries After Losing Consciousness Following an Accident

The human brain is the most complex organ of our body—it has many secrets that scientists and doctors have yet to find out. The brain is the powerhouse of the body. It gives life to feelings of love and happiness, and stores memories of favorite times spent with family, friends and loved ones. Externally, the brain covered by a thick layer of bone that forms our skull which provides protection for the fragile brain that is located internally.

However, even with this protection, our brain is still susceptible to many injuries. One of the most devastating injuries you can suffer is a traumatic brain injury or TBI. People involved in car crashes, slips, falls and other accidents are at risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury.

The damage incurred through brain injuries as the result of a truck or motor vehicle accident can be noticed immediately or can surface days and weeks later. It is important to look for signs of a brain trauma injury if you or someone you love has suffered a strong impact near the head.
