The Most Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries in Georgia


January 16, 2019

Traumatic brain injuries should always be taken seriously, and it is important to understand the activities that are associated with these injuries. By knowing the risks for traumatic brain injuries, you can be prepared to protect yourself and your loved ones and seek appropriate care in the event of an accident.

Car Accidents – Car accidents are unfortunately an extremely common cause of traumatic brain injuries. Because these injuries result from impactful blows to the head, vehicle collisions have a high risk for traumatic brain injuries. Forceful crashes, vehicle rollovers, and flying debris can all result in head trauma and subsequent brain injuries. 

Workplace Accidents – Accidents in the workplace are another common cause of traumatic brain injuries. Particularly in the construction industry, people work with heavy equipment and materials and are exposed to risks of head injury. Being struck by machinery or tools or falling from a height can all result in serious head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. 

Athletics – More people are learning about traumatic brain injuries because of reports about repeated concussions and head injuries in professional athletes, especially professional football players. All athletics come with risks, but some athletic events are more prone to head serious injuries, like football, soccer, bicycling, skiing, and skateboarding. These athletics present continued risk of impacts to the head. 

Falls – Falls carry the risk of traumatic brain injuries when people hit their heads on the ground or against another object. These falls might occur in an icy parking lot, on a snow-covered sidewalk, or in an establishment with spills. Other falls presenting risk of head injury include falling down stairs, falling off a balcony, or tripping over an object.
