Brain injuries are some of the most devastating a person can suffer because some people never reach full recovery after sustaining this type of injury. Brain injuries can generally be classified into open head injury, closed head injury, deceleration injuries, chemical/toxic, hypoxia, tumors, infections, and stroke. The most common types of brain injury that result from an accident are open head injury, close head injury, and deceleration injuries. Open head injuries occur where there is penetration of the skull. On the other hand, in closed head injuries, there is no such penetration. Lastly, deceleration injuries typically involve traumatic movement of the brain inside the skull. All three types could lead to permanent impairment or death.
