Traumatic Brain Injury
According to the Florida Department of Health, Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, Brain Injury is defined as an insult to the skull, brain or its covering, resulting from external trauma which produces an altered state of consciousness or anatomic, motor, sensory, cognitive, or behavioral deficit. A brain injury can be caused by a direct force to the head, which can break the skull and directly injure the brain. This type of injury can occur from motor vehicle accidents, firearms, falls, sports, and physical violence, such as hitting or striking with an object. Another cause of a brain injury is due to a rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head. This causes the brain to have a back and forward motion inside of the skull, which may pull apart nerve fibers and cause damage to the brain tissue. This type of injury often occurs as a result of motor vehicle crashes and physical violence, such as Shaken Baby Syndrome.
