Common Causes of Brain Injury

There are a large number of substances that could result in a brain injury should you be exposed. Some toxic substances include:

  • Carbon monoxide: Carbon monoxide exposure is often due to furnaces, ranges, water heaters, and other appliances in the home that are not properly installed. It is extremely dangerous to inhale carbon monoxide due to the fact that it could leave you unconscious, or even result in fatal consequences. Even if you survive poisoning due to carbon monoxide, you could experience long-term issues such as diminished cognitive ability, depression, headaches, fatigue, and other serious cognitive deficits.
  • Lead: Due to the amount of lead-based products found in the home, children are more susceptible to lead poisoning. Children may ingest products with lead, and it can result in serious neurological damage and permanent injury.
  • Manganese: Long-term manganese exposure can leave victims with brain injuries. These could include symptoms such as dizziness, sleep problems, nightmares, tremors, fatigue, and decreasing mental capabilities.
  • Mercury: Mercury exposure can leave individuals with troubles breathing. Other factors can affect your motor skills, coordination, mental alertness, and can even result in death.
  • Pesticides: Pesticides are dangerous and victims of exposure can experience troubles with vision and motor skills, along with breathing issues and headaches. Other problems can include organ failure and even death.
  • Solvents: Solvents often contain dangerous chemicals. These substances can lead to brain damage over the long term. Victims often experience memory and attention issues, along with headaches, dementia, and confusion. You may also have trouble with your vision and sense of smell.
