When people hear about brain injuries or think about someone who has suffered from a brain injury, they usually associate it with a very serious car accident or an injury sustained in a hostile war environment. These can be common ways a person might sustain an injury, but there are also seemingly small incidents that can lead to traumatic brain injuries.
A recent case involving a referee of a soccer game who died after being punched in the face by a player caught some by surprise. The man was officiating a high school soccer game, when he was punched. He seemed fine initially after the incident, but soon became ustable and started vomiting blood.
