What Causes a Brain Injury?
A brain injury is a broad term. Some brain injuries are more serious than others. For instance, a concussion is a form of brain injury. Most people fully recover from concussions and have no lasting effects. More serious brain injuries, such as bleeding and pressure on the brain, can leave someone fully disabled or can even cause death. Depending on the severity of the brain injury, it may be referred to as a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Brain injuries might be caused by:
- Being a victim of a violent crime, including domestic abuse, mugging, or assault
- A sports accident
- A diving accident
- A construction accident
- A car accident
- A boating accident
- A truck accident
- A motorcycle accident
This list is not exhaustive. However, it does list common causes of brain injuries.
