Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur in many different ways. In some cases, a brain injury is the result of a medical professional’s negligence, such as in a birth injury case. In other situations, a brain injury occurs as a result of a car accident, a slip and fall, or another type of accident. Regardless of how it occurred, if another person or party was at fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Louisville brain injury attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and options.

Common causes of brain injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

Types of Brain Injuries

There are several different types of brain injuries, including mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) and severe traumatic brain injuries (sTBIs). Even a mild brain injury can have serious, long-term effects on the victim’s health, well-being, and overall quality of life.

There are several different types of brain injuries, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Concussions: One of the most common types of brain injuries, a concussion is caused by a blow to the head or a violent shaking of the head. These injuries are often seen in car accident victims, as the impact of the crash can cause the head to jerk forward and backward or side to side. Concussions can be mild or severe, and the symptoms may not appear for hours, days, or even weeks after the injury.
  • Contusions: These are brain bruises that typically occur when the head sustains a direct impact. They are often caused by a blow to the head with a hard object, such as a piece of debris, a baseball bat, or a hammer. Contusions may or may not require surgery, depending on the severity.
  • Penetration injuries: These brain injuries occur when a foreign object, such as a bullet or piece of debris, penetrates the skull and enters the brain. Penetration injuries are often fatal, and those who do survive often suffer permanent brain damage.
  • Anoxic brain injuries: This type of brain injury occurs when the brain is completely deprived of oxygen. The longer the brain is without oxygen, the more severe the damage. Anoxic brain injuries are typically caused by medical negligence, such as when an anesthesiologist fails to properly monitor a patient’s vitals during surgery.
  • Hypoxic brain injuries: This type of brain injury occurs when the brain is partially deprived of oxygen. Hypoxic brain injuries are also typically caused by medical negligence.

Signs & Symptoms of a Brain Injury

Brain injuries can cause a wide range of symptoms, some of which may not appear for days, weeks, or even months after the initial injury. It is important to be aware of the signs of a brain injury and to seek medical attention if you or someone you love experiences any of these symptoms.

Common signs and symptoms of a brain injury include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Memory problems
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Delayed response
  • Changes in mood or behavior
  • Seizures
  • Convulsions
  • Loss of coordination
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Coma
