What Causes Brain Injuries?

In many cases, brain injuries are caused by collapsing equipment, falls on construction sites, car accidents, other vehicle accidents and more. These types of injuries can be caused by immediate and blunt impact to the head but can also be caused by interruption of blood circulation, damage to nerve fibers and swelling in the skull. No matter what the cause may be, brain injury victims should seek immediate medical and legal help right away.

There are a wide range of brain injuries, including the following:

  • Acquired brain injuries: These types of injuries stem from instances of illness, as well as occasions where blood or oxygen has difficulty getting to the brain.

  • Closed head injuries: A brain injury can occur without a fracture to the skull. These more contained head injuries can present treatment challenges.
  • Coma: When an injury causes an individual to become comatose, they can face an uncertain recovery.
  • Memory loss: A loss of memory can have a profound impact on your life, and it is often a lasting symptom of a brain injury.
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): Some instances of TBI can be mild in their severity, while more serious cases can have permanent consequences.
  • Post-concussion disorder: A concussed individual can be left reeling with significant post-concussion disorder symptoms.
  • Severe and moderate brain injuries: A brain injury's severity depends on a multitude of factors, but even the most moderate cases warrant immediate medical attention.
