Injury to the brain is a very serious condition that can result from many situations. Traumatic brain injury from head traumas suffered in a serious wreck such as a car, truck, motorcycle, or boating accident or work related injuries are obvious sources of brain injury. However an injury to the brain can occur without any physical trauma to the head. Medial malpractice, defective medical devices or dangerous prescription drugs can also cause a brain injury without any intervening physical trauma.
An injury to the brain is potentially the most devastating injury a person can suffer, particularly when accompanied by unconsciousness or an period of coma. The effects are varied depending on the severity of the injury but they are usually permanent and life altering. Some brain injuries are subtle, especially in children, and can only be detected through cognitive and neuro-psychological testing.
