Regardless of whether traumatic brain injuries are mild or severe in nature, it’s important to understand that:
- Some symptoms can take days (or longer) to present themselves – especially if a TBI leaves someone in a coma.
- These symptoms can vary (and be more challenging to detect) in babies and young children who may have limited (if any) ability to communicate what the changes they are experiencing (like headaches, for instance).
How Negligence Can Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by various events. When negligence is a factor, however, some of the leading causes of TBIs include (and are not necessarily limited to):
- Falling accidents, including falls from heights and slip-and-fall accidents
- Auto accidents
- Other events, such as (but not limited to):
- Objects falling onto people’s heads
- Construction accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Attacks or assaults (including those involving nursing home abuse)
