What are the common causes and signs of a brain injury?

The brain is resilient but can only take so much when it comes to injury. Car accidents, workplace injuries and even simple slips and falls can lead to damage that changes your entire life. Learn the common causes of brain injuries and the signs you may need help.

Common causes of brain injuries

Any type of injury where the head is hit can lead to a life-threatening brain injury, but there are a few situations that are more common than others. Severe jolts or blows, spinning or rotational shocks, or a strong blast can seriously injure the brain. These activities may lead to the tearing of cellular structures, swelling, blood clots or bleeding on the brain, or a disruption to the brain's oxygen supply.

Physical symptoms

The brain controls so much of movement, behavior and cognition that there are many symptoms of a brain injury. The physical symptoms include headaches, vomiting, nausea, sleeping more than usual or difficulty sleeping, loss of balance or dizziness, disorientation, confusion, dazed feelings and loss of consciousness for several seconds.

Sensory symptoms

Sensory symptoms can include ear ringing, changes in smelling ability, sensitivity to sound or light, and blurred vision. If you notice any of these symptoms persist after an injury to the head, it is time to see a professional.

Mental or cognitive symptoms

As the brain deals with a traumatic injury, you may also notice cognitive or psychological impairments. These can be feelings of anxiety and depression, mood swings, frequent changes in concentration or memory problems.

Almost 2.6 million Americans each year deal with some type of injury to the brain and 52,000 of those individuals die from it. A brain injury can completely alter the course you had for your life. If you have been in an accident and suffered a brain injury, consult with an attorney to ensure you are compensated adequately.
