Common Reasons Brain and Head Injuries Occur
MTBI, or minor traumatic brain injuries, are as the name suggests: smaller yet manageable head injuries that cause short-term memory loss, confusion or delusions, even imbalance.
More often than not, cases of brain injury stem from:
- Passengers ejected from vehicles involved in head-on collisions.
- Pedestrians hit with falling debris in unmarked construction zones.
- Elderly persons being abused. Note that as we age, our ability to bruise and sustain brain trauma from being bludgeoned or recklessly treated is much easier than before.
- Motorcycle crashes, especially those where proper head protection wasn’t worn.
- Slips and fall incidents, more commonly at workplaces and stores.
- Swimming pool ladders that weren’t properly secured to an in-ground or above-ground pool.
Because the human brain maintains a jelly-like consistency, the exact repercussions of head trauma depend on where damage was sustained, at what speed, and how quickly damage is mitigated. Bodyweight, diet and preexisting conditions may contribute to the end result as well.
If your brain is slammed hard enough into your skull in all directions, neurons may shear and die off. This is called diffusional axonal shearing, which is serious enough to paralyze or kill victims. This is often caused by multiple blunt force traumas to your head.
If left untreated, long-term amnesia, hematoma, extended comas and possibly death may occur. The Law Offices of J. Jeffrey Herman will assign an expert brain and head injury attorney to litigate your case. While we cannot tell you where or how to seek treatment, we can offer suggestions of places based on recommendations of past clients or personal knowledge.
