Learn the common causes of TBIs and what to do if you have experienced one.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

A TBI often occurs as the result of a blow or jolt to the head. As such, any instance in which the head and brain experience sudden acceleration or deceleration may result in a TBI. Such incidents may include the following:

  • Car accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Industrial accidents

  • Sports collisions

  • Assaults

When the head experiences a sudden acceleration or deceleration, such as in the aforementioned incidents, the brain may be slow to catch up. When it does catch up, it may bounce against the inside of the skull, leading to bruising and a subsequent injury.
