Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include the following:
- Auto accidents
- Bike accidents
- Major slips and falls
- Assaults/physical altercations
- Incidents involving firearms
- Military combat
- Contact sports
- Combat sports
- Industrial accidents
Major incidents that involve head injury as well as repeated blows to the head as a result of any of the above can lead to varying degrees of brain damage.
Open/Penetrating Head Injury and Brain Damage
One type of head injury that can be especially serious is the open head injury. During an open head injury, the skull is broken and penetrated. In such cases, damage to the brain can be extremely serious.
Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Concussions occur when the brain makes sudden impact against the skull. Concussions that go untreated can lead to mental and physical disorders, especially when the blows are repeated and occur often. We've read quite a bit about the severe brain damage done to former NFL players, for instance, due to repeated blows to the head, many of which result in concussions.
Lasting Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries can affect people in many different ways, and the full extent of the damage done to a person will depend on the nature and severity of the brain damage.
In terms of the effects on the victim's mental health, traumatic brain injury sufferers often experience serious issues with cognition and memory, and they may have problems with language and basic alertness or attention. Psychological disturbances and mood disorders are also common for TBI victims.
There is a physical toll that brain injuries can take as well. Major brain trauma can result in issues with motor skills and balance, making even the simplest of tasks very difficult to perform.
