4 Common Causes Of Traumatic Brain Injuries
While any blow to the head can lead to a traumatic brain injury (TBI), some situations are more likely than others to result in TBIs. In fact, a significant number of TBIs are caused by the following events:
- Falls: Falls are probably the most common cause of TBIs. These can include falls off of a ladder and/or scaffolding, which are common types of construction-related accidents.
- Motor vehicle crashes: TBIs are also common in serious motor vehicle accidents, including collisions involving trucks, buses and cars.
- Sports-related injuries: There are a number of sports in which traumatic brain injuries have been known to occur, including football, soccer, boxing and hockey, just to name a few.
- Assaults and other violence: This may include instances of domestic violence/abuse as well as gun-related head injuries.
Another common cause of TBIs is explosive blasts, but these are typically suffered by active-duty military personnel. When it comes to the general public, the four causes listed above are far more common.
