Most of the time, traffic accidents involving cars, trucks, and/or motorcycles are what are the cause of catastrophic injuries. The reason these accidents have such a serious potential is because you can receive traumatic brain injuries, head injuries, and other serious injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are classified as catastrophic. Head injuries can cause a lot of problems. Some of these problems can be debilitating and permanently affect your life.
The two types of traumatic brain injuries are penetrating and closed head injuries. A penetrating accident is when something goes through the skull into the brain tissue. This can happen in traffic accidents, especially if there is something sharp inside the vehicle. A closed head injury happens when the brain hits against the skull, or a blow to the head without penetration of the skull.
