Do Car Accidents Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries?

A large percentage of traumatic brain injuries happen off of the athletic fields and behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), across all age groups, car crashes are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Furthermore, most fatal TBIs result from car accidents.

For example, a senior English major at Middle Tennessee State University was injured in a car accident in November of 2011, only a semester before graduation. According to a recent report on her recovery, the victim was never the same after a month-long coma induced by the accident. After waking, she had difficulty coordinating her limbs and balancing. In addition, she was continually distracted and could not focus on one thing at a time. However, she is determined to finish her degree and recently completed an online class after years of rehabilitation.
