Penetration: When an object actually penetrates the tissues of the brain, the damage can be critical. A penetrating injury in an accident may be caused by a sharp object that strikes the skull, forcing hair, skin, bones, and debris into the brain.
The Impact of Brain Damage for an Accident Victim
The effects of brain damage due to an accident vary based upon the region of the brain affected. If the injury is to the brain stem, the victim may have problems with concentration and balance. Damage to the temporal lobes may result in hearing and vision issues, while harm to the frontal lobe can be more extensive. A victim may suffer from memory problems, motor skills dysfunction, and problems with word association.
