A traumatic brain injury (TBI) almost always causes temporary or permanent brain damage. This damage can leave a victim with cognitive, emotional and physical disabilities, including personality changes, memory loss, seizures and severe headaches. Victims of head and brain injuries may no longer be able to earn a living, and they often require long-term rehabilitative therapy.

Brain Injury Causes

Trauma – A person with a traumatic brain injury is a person who has had a traumatically induced disruption of brain function that may include a loss of consciousness, but does not have to.

A TBI can occur without a loss of consciousness and even without a direct blow to the head if manifested by feeling dazed, disoriented or confused or having any loss of memory either before or after the accident. There are many types of trauma that can cause traumatic brain injuries, including:

  • Car and truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Other workplace accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Maritime accidents

Other causes of traumatic brain injury can include:

  • Exposure to toxic substances in the workplace such as pesticides, carbon monoxide, fuels, solvents and metals
  • Anoxia (complete oxygen deprivation) or hypoxia (reduced oxygen) caused by drowning, choking, strangulation or various environmental problems at work or at home
