STRIKE TO THE HEAD
When a person’s head strikes, for example, the floor, or an object strikes their head, although the skull may not be penetrated or fractured, the force may cause the brain to collide against the inside of the hard skull in their head. The result can lead to . When a moving head comes to a quick stop, as in a road accident the brain continues in its movement, striking the interior of the skull. This can cause brain injury, or even spinal injury. Brain injury in these types of accidents occurs in parts of the brain that is closest to the point of impact, quite often the tips of the frontal and temporal lobes.
