A motor vehicle accident or a fall down the stairs can change everything. Suddenly, a person who had an alert and vibrant mind may have difficulty speaking, reasoning or performing routine daily tasks. The victim may not be able to work in his or her occupation.

Guidance Through Life-Changing Injuries in Rhode Island
Head injuries include traumatic brain injuries, concussions and penetrating head injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a disruption of the brain's normal function as a result of a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body. Concussions are mild brain injuries that occur when a blow to the body causes the head to move rapidly back and forth, bouncing the brain against the skull. People who suffer whiplash can also have a concussion.
Traumatic brain injuries are classified as mild, moderate and severe. A severe brain injury can result in coma or wrongful death. Mild and moderate brain injuries can also have serious consequences. People with these injuries may experience memory loss, confusion, headaches, personality changes, depression and cognitive difficulties. They may be unable to return to work or maintain relationships.
Closed head and traumatic brain injuries are frequently caused by:
- Vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Construction accidents
Falls and car accidents are the leading causes of brain injuries. However, any accident that applies significant force to the body can result in a brain injury.
