What Are the Most Typical Causes of Brain Injuries?

In most cases, brain injuries occur as a result of traumatic accidents in which either an object forcefully collides with or penetrates the skull or a sudden, violent jolt causes the brain to impact against the inner wall of the skull. Often, victims of brain injury may seem perfectly normal immediately after the accident that caused the injury, as it may take days, weeks, or even months for symptoms to become apparent. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms do manifest themselves, it is likely that irreparable damage has already been done. This is why it is so important for accident victims to seek medical treatment immediately after their accidents even if they believe themselves to be unharmed.

Chris Olsen handles cases involving brain injuries arising from all types of accidents, including:

  • Car, truck, motorcycle, SUV, bus, train, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents, which are common in San Diego
  • Premises liability accidents, including slip and fall accidents and accidents involving falling objects
  • Sports accidents
  • Construction and other jobsite accidents
  • Falls from ladders, roofs, scaffolding, and other high places
  • Violent attacks, especially due to lack of proper security on commercial properties
  • Medical malpractice, including surgical mistakes and the misdiagnosis of or failure to diagnose a brain injury or disorder
  • Accidents resulting from the use of defective products, including automotive products, machinery, toys, and dangerous prescription drugs
