Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
It is possible to suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in nearly any type of accident. All that is necessary to cause a severe concussion is for the accident victim's head to be struck with sufficient force. Certain types of accidents, however, account for most of the reported cases of traumatic brain injury every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 35.2 percent of all new traumatic brain injury cases every year are sustained in falls.
Motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the cause of 17.3 percent of TBI cases, whether the accident victim's head strikes the interior of the vehicle or hits the road. Being struck by or against an object is the cause of 16 percent of TBIs, followed by assault, which is the cause of 10 percent of injuries. The remaining 21 percent of traumatic brain injuries are caused by other types of accidents.
