Main Causes Of Brain Injuries

When we turn to data available from the Mayo Clinic, we can see that brain injury has a wide variety of causes. In some cases, these incidents occur purely by accident. However, there are certainly times when the negligent or wrongful actions of other individuals cause brain injuries. According to the Mayo Clinic, the following are the most common causes of brain injuries:

  • Falls: There are various ways that fall occur. In some cases, such as a fall down a ladder, off of scaffolding, or down stairways, these falls happen from significant heights. Falls from heights regularly result in catastrophic brain injuries. Other falls, such as slip and fall accidents, may not occur from a significant height but can nonetheless lead to both moderate to severe brain injuries.
  • Vehicle accidents: Collisions involving motor vehicles are a leading cause of brain injuries in and around the Dallas area. These injuries can occur when two vehicles collide, but some of the most serious brain injuries involve vehicles striking motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
  • Violence: Unfortunately, violence is another leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. This can include child abuse, domestic violence, gunshot wounds, assault and battery incidents, and more.
  • Sports injuries: It is certainly not uncommon for those who play sports to sustain mild traumatic brain injuries, often referred to as concussions. What many people do not realize that concussions can result in cumulative trauma that gets worse with every subsequent concussion. Additionally, contact sports regularly result in more serious traumatic brain injuries.
  • Explosions and combat injuries: Explosive blasts are a common cause of traumatic brain injuries. Many people only think of explosions affecting those in the military. While explosions are a leading cause of servicemember brain injuries, many people in and around Dallas work in the oil industry or other types of industries that have a higher rate of explosion accidents.
