What Is a Brain Injury?

The brain is one of the most critical structures in the human body, responsible for cognition, movement, speech, among other things. A brain injury occurs when the brain experiences trauma that impacts how it functions. Head injuries come in many forms, and range in severity. Some of the most common types of head injuries include:

Traumatic brain injuries – The term traumatic brain injury, or TBI, refers to all head injuries that disrupt the brain’s normal function. Each year, nearly 300,000 people are hospitalized due to TBIs, and almost 13.5 million people live with a TBI-related disability. A TBI can be caused by blunt force to the head or a penetrating injury.
Concussions – A concussion is characterized by a swift and sudden movement of the head in which the brain collides with the inside of the skull. Some concussions are minor, and may cause no long-term damage. However, a recent study indicates that more than half of all people who suffer a concussion experience post-concussion syndrome, which may result in sleepiness, dizziness, loss of memory, difficulty concentrating and anxiety.
Contusions – When the head experiences a sudden a direct impact, it may cause a contusion, which is a bruise on the brain’s surface. By definition, a contusion results in a loss of consciousness for at least 15 minutes, accompanied by damage to the brain.
Penetrating injuries – Also referred to as an open head injury, a penetrating injury occurs when an object pierces the outer layer of the meninges. Open head injuries are frequently the result of a high-velocity object coming into contact with the head, such as during a car accident or slip-and-fall accident.

All brain injuries carry the potential to cause irreversible damage. However, the extent of the damage is often not immediately apparent. Thus, it is critical for anyone who experienced head trauma to seek immediate medical attention.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur in just about any aspect of everyday life. The following are some of the most common causes of head injuries:

Slip-and-falls
Workplace accidents
Car accidents
Motorcycle crashes
Truck wrecks
• Sports injuries

Those suffering from a brain injury may be entitled to monetary compensation for their injuries through a South Carolina personal injury lawsuit.
