It’s estimated that nearly 1.4 million people experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. These injuries are caused by a blow or jolt to the head which damages or disrupts brain function. Brain injuries range in severity from mild concussions to a coma or even death. There are nearly 5.3 million people in the United States today living with disabilities resulting from a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries are one of the most life-changing and serious injuries, potentially affecting memory and cognitive ability with long-term effects.
Because these injuries are complex, symptoms do not always appear immediately and may not be obvious for months. In cases of a mild TBI, the person may not realize that a brain injury has even occurred. In cases like this, it’s usually family members who notice changes which could be attributed to a brain injury. The most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Car or motorcycle accidents
- Birth injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Slips or falls
- Construction accidents Brain injuries are usually very expensive to treat, and treatment may last a lifetime in some cases.
