  • Loss of motor skills

  • Hand and eye coordination impairment

How Are Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) Caused?

There are countless ways traumatic brain injuries occur. But, sadly, many happen due to the negligence of another individual such as in:

Medical Malpractice Instances

Newborns can experience head injuries during birth due to compressed airways and hypertension during gestation. Nursing home residents can fall and hit their heads if they are not properly secured or supervised. A TBI can also occur because of a failure to diagnose a stroke or heart attack that caused preventable damage to the brain due to a lack of oxygen needed to function.

Slip, Trip And Falls

An individual who falls in a parking lot, retail store or construction zone due to an uneven or slippery surface can experience a TBI due to blunt trauma to the skull.

Getting Immediate Help

Sadly, many TBIs without head penetration or bleeding go unnoticed because the symptoms do not necessarily occur instantaneously. However, those who have experienced any trauma to the head region should seek medical attention immediately. Without immediate treatment, irreversible damage could occur.
