Why Brain Injuries Occur

Brain injuries can occur from a number of accidents and incidents, including:

  • Trucking accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Violence or assaults
  • Train collisions
  • Aviation accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Birth injuries

Any time that the brain is violently shaken or comes into sharp contact with a hard surface, a traumatic brain injury is possible. Brain injuries are also possible if a sharp object can penetrate the hard skull around the brain tissue.

Symptoms Of A Brain Injury

Brain injuries vary widely, depending on how the injury occurred and how serious the injury was. Symptoms may include:

  • Headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating or paying attention
  • Dizziness
  • Anxiety
  • Personality changes
  • A bump on the head
  • Memory loss
  • Vision problems
  • Loss of consciousness

What is frightening is that some brain injuries have no symptoms at all but can still be life-threatening. Anytime that you suspect a brain injury, it is always better to err on the side of caution and get a medical professional's guidance about the situation. Prompt medical treatment in the event of brain trauma can save your life.
