Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, could be caused by a New Mexico auto accident. This is because the brain is susceptible to the great forces generated by a motor vehicle crash. As you may know, your brain sits in your skull, which is a hardened bone that protects it. But yours brain is also surrounded by cerebral spinal fluid, which means that your brain is suspended in this fluid. When your head is subjected to a rapid back-and-forth motion (whiplash) or a direct impact, your brain will be violently tossed in your skull which could result in serious personal injury.
