In most cases, brain injuries are caused by direct trauma to a person’s head. This trauma can occur in a variety of situations, including automobile accidents, sports accidents, high falls, gunshots, or blunt force. Brain injuries can also be brought about by events that do not involve direct trauma, such as choking, near drowning, crush injuries, heart attack, blood loss, stroke, aneurysm, toxic exposure, and electrocution.

The Effects of Brain Injuries
Most brain injuries are not clearly visible. This can lead to the belief that the damage is not extensive. However, these injuries can actually be very complex, and bring about physical, cognitive, and vocational changes that can negatively affect one for the rest of one’s life. In many instances, brain injuries are caused by the negligence of another person, group, or business. If the victim has suffered changes that affect his or her ability to function normally or keep gainful employment, the party at fault should be held responsible for any losses that victim sustains as a result.
