Common Causes of Fall-Related Brain Injuries

A common cause of brain injuries are serious slip and fall accidents caused by uneven, wet, or unkept surfaces. A severe fall that results in the head making impact with the ground or other hard surface can affect a victim's overall cognition, mood, thought process, or even general personality.

When someone experiences brain damage due to a fall that was the result of someone else's negligence, this is a serious matter that is also a clear personal injury case. 

Falls that result in brain injury can occur in these and other ways:

  • Risky work conditions, such as in jobs related to construction or contracting, or unsafe conditions related to faulty safety equipment or other negligence
  • Public spaces such as sidewalks and walkways that have not been properly maintained
  • Unsafe stairwells or elevators
  • Revolving doors in building and public spaces
  • Loose tiles and flooring
  • Weather-related conditions that involve wet or iced-over surfaces
  • Fall from considerable heights
  • Negligence in hospitals and nursing homes
