Workplace accident may cause traumatic brain injury. A work environment can never be very safe no matter how neat an office is. Accidents resulting to brain injury can happen in a workplace especially if you are not careful and not aware of your surroundings.
An auto accident can lead to a traumatic brain injury. In the US, it is the second leading cause of brain injuries next to falls. Alarmingly, it is the leading cause of head injuries related deaths. Such injury can result to an open wound in the head or a closed head injury.
Repeated brain injuries have a cumulative effect resulting in more severe and more prolonged post-concussion symptoms. A very serious and dangerous condition or even death can occur if a second concussion is suffered while symptoms from a previous concussion still persist.
