Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are caused by an external force impacting brain tissue. These injuries could include a blow to the head, impact from a car accident, or from falling. They can lead to concussions, brain contusions, swelling, and bleeding in the brain.

Victims can lose control of:

  • Motor skills
  • Cognitive abilities
  • Sensory skills

Comas, mental confusion, memory loss, headaches, speech problems, loss of judgment, paralysis, concentration problems, and many more disabilities can result from trauma to the brain.

The most common events causing brain injuries include:

Depending on the extent of the injury, victims may be unable to care for themselves, work, enjoy social events, or carry on with their normal activities following such an injury. They may require extensive ongoing medical care, including physical therapy, medical equipment, surgeries, and more.
