Falls, car crashes and other brain injury causes

Whether a construction worker falls off of a ladder, an athlete is struck in the head while playing team sports or a nursing home resident slips on the floor, brain injuries happen in many different ways. In San Bernardino, California, these injuries may leave victims with short-term challenges or permanently change their lives. From workers' compensation to holding negligent people accountable, some brain injury victims have numerous options on the table. That said, it is essential for people to understand some of the primary reasons why these injuries continue to occur.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many traumatic brain injuries are the result of falls. From 2006 until 2010, falls were the chief cause of traumatic brain injuries that led to the loss of life, hospitalization or emergency room visits. Although many of the TBIs that occur are caused by falling down, it is vital to remember that there are all sorts of other accidents associated with these serious injuries. Motor vehicle crashes, assault and being struck by objects also account for a large number of traumatic brain injuries.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine has outlined various TBI symptoms that those who have hit their head should look out for. Sometimes, people with injured brains do not notice any symptoms until months later. From pupil dilation and speech difficulties to chronic headaches, seizures and vomiting, those who experience upsetting symptoms after involvement in an accident that caused them to suffer a blow to the head should seek treatment right away.
