Common Types of Brain Injuries

There are many different types of brain injuries you can get. Most doctors will classify a brain injury as mild, moderate, or severe. The most frequent type of brain injuries are:

  • Hemmoraging – This is uncontrolled bleeding around the brain.
  • Concussions – Multiple and repeated concussions can greatly worsen the damage
  • Skull Fracture – Serious blunt force trauma can fracture the skull
  • Hematoma – When the blood vessels rupture around your brain

Any trauma to your head can result in a brain injury. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to get checked out by a medical doctor after any accident. Keep in mind that you may not experience a skull fracture or other physical symptoms after a TBI.

Common symptoms to look out for are loss of memory, loss of feeling or other major senses, mood changes and cognitive defects.
