Acquired Brain Injuries can occur throughout a person’s lifetime and are not part of any genetic
or congenital disorder. In some cases when they occur they could have been prevented and/or
significantly reduced if a patient had received competent medical care.


A traumatic brain injury is caused by external elements such as traffic accidents, physical assaults
or hitting your head after a fall. One of the more commonly known injuries from a traumatic brain injury is a concussion. In most cases, a concussion may have mild effects on a person, however, at the same time, a concussion can have very serious consequences.


The above brain injuries could be caused as a result of the following:

Failure to diagnose a stroke or severe concussion;
Mismanagement following an operation;
Failure to treat a medical condition;
Overdose of medication; and
Delay in treatment.
