Any time someone sustains an injury, it is a serious matter. However, traumatic
brain injuries are some of the most severe injuries a person can face.
Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries are often the result of serious
negligence and can have a lifelong impact on the victim. Some of the most
common causes of brain injuries arise from things we do every day. This
information isn’t meant to be alarming, but it helps to raise awareness
so that you know how you can take appropriate precautions.
One of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries is auto collisions.
The momentum of a crash can force the passengers’ heads to jerk
back and forth, sometimes causing the head to make contact with parts
of the vehicle. This is also the case in motorcycle crashes. Even with
a helmet, the rider is susceptible to serious damage to the head and the
brain due to the possibility of being ejected from the bike. In either
case, sudden shifts in momentum can cause serious trauma to the head.
Falls from Heights
Many people, especially construction workers, are injured when they fall
from several feet above ground. A fall from a height can result in the
individual striking their head on the ground below. With enough force,
it can cause a serious brain injury that can change the course of their
entire life. This type of incident can happen in any type of situation,
such as a fall from a ladder at home or a tumble down an improperly maintained
Injuries in Sports
Due to recent lawsuits filed against the National Football League and World
Wrestling Entertainment, brain injuries in contact sports has been a hot
topic. The force from sudden and repeated blows to the head can cause
serious concussions, which can lead to CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
Multiple concussions can lead to a change in mental state and long-term
changes to cognitive function, personality, and much more.
There is a risk of explosion wherever combustible substances are present.
When an explosion happens, anybody within the vicinity of the blast can
sustain a serious brain injury due to not only the power of the explosion,
but also any objects that are flying through the air. Industrial sector
employees are most at risk for this type of injury.
One of the most common causes of brain injuries is violence. Gunshot wounds,
shaken baby syndrome, and other types of physical assault can result in
serious internal or external trauma, especially in infants whose skulls
have not fully developed.
