Brain cell damage can be sustained at the area below the impact on the skull. A more severe blow which causes the brain to move may affect different areas of the brain, depending on the movement and force of the brain hitting the inside of the skull.
A ripping of tissue can occur with a circular jolt to the head. An explosion can incur major damage. If the skull is penetrating, irreparable damage can be done to brain cells, protective brain tissue and vessels that carry blood.
Any penetration of the skull may cause irreversible damage to the brain, cells, vessels and the brain’s protective tissue. Any bleeding in or near the brain and blood clots can affect the oxygen supplied to the brain, causing more damage.
Situations that can produce a traumatic brain injury include; falls are the most common in older adults and young children; vehicle accidents; sports injuries, and explosions.
