A brain injury is classified as an outside force that seriously injures the brain. We define an individual as a victim of such an injury, no matter the intensity of the harm, if he or she is a “different person” than he or she was before the injury.Symptoms of a brain injury typically include unconsciousness or confusion for less than thirty minutes, blurry vision, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting. While additional symptoms may accompany a brain injury, a person may show signs of fewer symptoms as well. Sometimes even “mild” brain injuries can produce severe symptoms. Whether mild or severe, a brain injury is likely to be caused by a blow or jolt to the head, or a painful head injury that disrupts the ordinary function of the brain. The following are the leading causes of brain injuries:
- Falls (28%)
- Motor Vehicle Traffic Crashes (20%)
- Struck By/Against Events (19%)
- Assaults (11%)
