Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries come in many different forms, and be caused by many different factors. These include:
- Trauma: Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are acquired brain injuries resulting from an outside force, and are not hereditary or present at birth. TBIs typically result from blunt force trauma and head injuries such as those sustained in car accidents, falls, construction accidents, and other types of traumatic events.
- Oxygen deprivation: Hypoxic and anoxic brain injuries refer to brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen. In the case of hypoxia, that means an insufficient supply of oxygen in brain tissue; in the case of anoxia, it means a complete lack of oxygen. Both forms of oxygen deprivation can cause permanent and profound disability, if not death. Common causes include drowning, electrocution, and strokes, and well as medical negligence, such as the failure to diagnose a serious condition, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, and birth injuries.
- Non-impact injuries: TBIs can occur even without direct impact or injury to the head. Sudden forces which cause the brain to rapidly move or accelerate within the skull can be enough to damage tissue. These injuries may result from auto accidents involving whiplash, or from industrial accidents involving explosions.
- Toxic exposure: Some brain injuries can be caused by exposure to toxic substances, whether that means exposure from the environment or the workplace, from an unsafe product, or from dangerous medications.
Whether the injury occurred as a result of a motor vehicle accident, an accident at the workplace or a defective product, the effects of a brain injury can be far-reaching – affecting a person’s mood, behavior, cognitive abilities, and overall physical, emotional, and financial health.
