Is there an adult version of shaken baby syndrome? Is that what happens when a roadside bomb goes off?

There is no adult version of shaken child syndrome.But a severe blow to head can cause sililar picture,which can cause a concussion,subdural or extradural hemorrage with or without fracture skull and in some cases it can be fatal.But in an adult you can not get all that by forcefull shaking.So you can not call it adult shaken syndrome
