Any kind of trauma to the head or neck region can cause the brain to bruise, bleed, tear, or swell and may result in paralysis, loss of consciousness, and even wrongful death.Types of Brain Injuries
There are two general types of head injuries: open and closed. An open injury means the skull has been fractured. A closed head injury, although the skull is not fractured, can be more serious than an open injury due to the possibility of brain swelling and the formation of blood clots inside the skull.
According the National Institutes of Health, traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of TBI vary and are classified as mild, moderate or severe depending on the extent of the brain's damage.Brain Injury Symptoms

Some brain injuries do not show symptoms immediately. If there's any concern about possible brain or skull damage, do not hesitate to seek medical help.
