Brain injury, or Traumatic brain injury, can be life-altering and also life-threatening. It occurs when the brain is injured often as a result of an auto wreck. If the trauma causes damage to the skull itself, such as a crack or break, the injury is considered a penetrating head injury.

This can happen due to an an impact, or from severe back-and-forth shaking, such as whiplash. Such events can take place in: car and truck accidents, fall downs or on the job injuries.
