Causes of traumatic brain injury
Trauma to the head can occur during an accident, such as in a road collision or a slip or fall, or be caused by a physical assault or an injury whilst at work. It can also happen due to medical negligence, such as a fall or accident whilst an inpatient in hospital. If the trauma is severe enough to cause damage to the brain, permanent and life-altering disabilities can arise.
