Most Head Injury Trauma Results from Auto Accidents
About half our head injury trauma injuries result from vehicle crashes. Especially relevant, sudden force from impact causes a driver or passenger to strike his or her head against dashboards, seats, or windows. Moreover, head injury also results from minor impacts although there’s no major property damage.
In Lee County Florida, head injury survivors endure harsh consequences every day. Moreover, survivors and families hope each day brings some improvement. However small, incremental steps ahead lead to promising tomorrows.
While a head injury occurs differently in each incident, we know from research people in vehicles suffer serious traumatic brain injury. Generally, blunt force trauma occurs through crush damage or people striking objects or each other inside a e vehicle. In addition, many people suffer trauma through ejections out windows.
How Head Injury Occurs in a Vehicle Collision
Some crashes mangle vehicles, and no one speculates how a head injury results. For example, roof crush pressing down on a victim from a rollover accident is fairly obvious.
However, more common auto accidents do result in obvious cause and effect. So, we present several scenarios how head trauma occurs in collisions.
- Rear end collision: Rapid forward and backward motion of head and neck, called acceleration-deceleration, forces brain shifting inside a skull.
- Head-on collision: Brain shear from acceleration-deceleration is one source. However, airbags, steering columns, dashboards, windshields, and side windows smash heads.
- T-bone accident: Driver or occupant rapidly shift from side-to-side, striking their heads against side windows or each other.
- Offset impact: Collision occurs on an angle, having similar effect to both t-bone and rear-end or head-on collisions.
Proving how head injury occurs is critical in any personal injury claim. Accordingly, knowing how these tragic harms occur is important to proving your claim.
