Causes of Brain Injuries
The CDC also reports that falls are the most common cause of brain injuries. In fact, falls cause 40 percent of brain injuries that happen each year. The most vulnerable to these injuries are adults who are over 65 years of age and children who are younger than 14.
The next most common cause of brain injury – causing approximately 15 percent of injuries – is blunt trauma which is unintentional. This often occurs when the victim is hit in the head with some type of object, such as in a job-related accident.
Car accidents are also another frequent cause of brain injury, responsible for just under 15 percent. However, car crashes cause more than 25 percent of all fatal brain injuries.
Seek Medical Attention
A Cheyenne TBI lawyer recommends that any person who receives any type of injury to their head immediately seek medical treatment to determine if there has been any injury sustained to the brain. Many people do not realize that even a mild concussion can cause serious issues. It can also take days for symptoms of the concussion to show up but waiting to see a doctor can be dangerous. If a concussion is left undiagnosed and untreated, can be fatal. If a person does survive a serious concussion, they can have issues with thinking, emotions, sensations, and language skills.
In addition to the immediate effects and dangers of a brain injury, multiple studies have also shown that victims can develop epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders.
