unfit to be a duke

I've tried Googling "British peerage," "line of sucession," "dukedom inheritance," and "what happened to a duke who was injured beyond recovery?"

In my book, the eldest of two brothers becomes the duke after his father's death, but only a few years later he is thrown from his horse during a fox hunt. He doesn't die, but he suffers permanent brain damage.

Would his younger brother take over his title, even though he's not technically dead?

I'd really appreciate any help anyone could offer!

Happy New Year!!!
