Traumatic Brain Injury
Types of Brain and Head Injuries
Those who are involved in accidents in which their heads sustained trauma,
they may be suffering from brain injuries. A traumatic brain injury is
near synonymous with the term "head injury" but is more specific
as it typically involves intracranial injuries. These head injuries directly
affect the brain and the way it functions. This type of catastrophic injury
is among one of the leading causes of death and disability in the entire
world. These brain injuries will differ in type and severity. Some of
the major causes of these injuries are listed below.
Transportation Accidents- When a person is involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, their
head is not restrained or directly protected in the vehicle. The head
is susceptible to hitting various parts of the vehicle with great force,
Construction Accidents- Those who work in fields that require great amounts of physical exertion,
such as construction workers, run the risk of brain injury because equipment
and machinery are heavy and sometimes unstable.
Athletic Injuries- In recent times, a string of professional football players have filed
personal injury cases against the NFL because of concussion and other
serious brain injuries. Those who play physically demanding sports run
the risk of brain injury.
Sustaining a brain injury may not kill a victim right away, but rather
cause them to deteriorate in health over a course of time. According to
accident statistics, this happens to 40 percent of those who sustain brain
injuries. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with a traumatic brain
