Top Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries are caused by trauma to the brain or deprivation of oxygen to the brain. More than 1.7 million people suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every year in the United States and many of the victims are children or seniors over age 65. Traumatic brain injuries can have severe and lasting consequences no matter how old you are when injured. TBIs are the cause of as many as a third of all deaths due to trauma each year in the United States.
Traumatic brain injuries can happen any time an individual suffers an open or closed head wound. These types of wounds occur in many situations, but some of the top causes of TBIs include:
- Car accidents, or other vehicle collisions including pedestrian crashes, bicycle crashes, motorcycle collisions and truck accidents
- Slip and falls, falling out of bed, falling from a ladder, or other slips, trips and tumbles at home, at work or while in a public place or private residence
- Falls in nursing homes
- Sports injuries
- Violence, including domestic violence and child abuse
- Combat injuries and explosions, including explosions caused by fires or gas leaks at work or at home
- Falling debris
- Workplace injuries
The damage to the brain may be localized to the area where the blow impacted the skull. However, a severe jolt or blow to the brain can cause the brain to move back and forth within the skull. This can lead to multiple damage points and myriad symptoms and complications. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can vary from seizures and mood changes to memory problems, and can last for weeks, months or years—depending upon the severity of the injury.
