Causes Of Brain Injury
Oakland Attorneys / Causes of Brain Injury
While thousands of people suffer traumatic brain injuries each year in California, the causes of those injuries can range widely. Motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall cases and violence are some of the most common causes but a construction site accident, a bicycle accident or an accident involving a defective product could also account for one of these serious injuries.
Whatever the cause, a traumatic brain injury has the potential to cause significant short-term and long-term damage to the victim. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our attorneys represent the victims of brain injuries and their families in personal injury representation. If you have been involved in an accident involving brain trauma, talk with us about your situation and your options for recovery.

Some of the most frequent causes of brain injuries include open and closed head injuries, as well as chemical and toxic exposure. In an open head injury, there is actual penetration of the skull, although closed head injuries can have effects that are just as serious. When chemical exposure occurs, the harmful chemicals can damage neurons and cause metabolic disorders.
