Most Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain ScanAny 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.

Auto Collisions

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 stairwell.

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.

Explosions

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.

Violence

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.
