A brain injury can happen to anyone. Some brain injuries can happen when there is a problem inside the brain. This could be from a stroke, a brain tumour, or low oxygen to the brain.
Some brain injuries happen when there is a hit to the head. A brain injury can happen out of nowhere while you are doing an everyday activity. It could happen:
- In an accident while you are driving your car
- In an accident while you are riding your bike
- It can come out of nowhere while you are walking down a busy street
- It could happen at work
- Or it could happen in a fall while you’re running up the stairs
