Over 50,000 people die from brain injuries annually and 75,000 - 95,000 people will be permanently injured this year. 50% of all brain injury cases are caused by motor vehicle accidents. Brain injury is caused by three major factors: Bruising, Tearing, and Swelling. Bruising is caused by the brain hitting against the skull when the body comes to a sudden stop. (i.e. car accidents)  Tearing is caused by the head jerking forward and backwards very violently. Swelling is caused by the agents the body sends to a certain part of the body when it is injured. Since the skull is not flexible the fluids build up within the brain putting pressure on it. If you have been in a major accident and suspect brain injury get to the emergency room immediately. If the accident was due to another's negligence contact a personal injury lawyer.
