Traumatic Brain Injury Causes
Brain injuries can result from a car accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall, work-site accident, drowning, or other trauma. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains statistical data concerning traumatic brain injury and concussions. It lists the following as the top causes for these types of personal injury:
- Slip and falls
- Unintentional blunt trauma – for example, getting hit with a falling item at a construction site would constitute unintentional blunt trauma.
- Motor vehicle accidents account for 14% of brain injuries. They are also responsible for 26% of all deaths related to traumatic brain injury.
- Brain injuries may occur as a result of physical assault. Approximately 10% of all brain injuries were caused by violence.
- Medical malpractice may cause brain injuries. Failure to properly monitor a patient, or accidental oxygen deprivation during a medical procedure may result in serious brain damage.
Brain Injury Symptoms
Brain injuries are more common than many people realize, and they often go undiagnosed. The CDC estimates that more than 1.5 million people suffer a brain injury each year. Of those, 85,000 suffer a long term disability; 50,000 die. Severe head trauma can impair physical and cognitive functions or even render the victim comatose, but even seemingly minor accidents can lead to serious brain injuries. Know the signs and symptoms in order to diagnose and treat a head injury as quickly as possible:
- Memory loss
- Changes in vision or hearing
- Sleep problems
- Slurred speech, trouble finding words
- Emotional changes, depression, etc.
