Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, covers a wide range of complex injuries affecting:
Did You Know?
“Traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability in children and young adults in the United States.” – National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Brain injuries are categorized in two ways: closed-head injuries, where the skull remains intact and penetrating injuries, where an object enters the skull and injures the brain. A TBI may result from either of these types of injuries. According to the Mayo Clinic, these are the leading causes of brain injuries:
Falls are one of the leading causes of brain injury. What’s important to know is that falls don’t have to be from heights to cause a severe injury. A person who trips or slips and then falls, as a result, can be seriously injured. Small children and the elderly are especially at risk.
If your loved one falls in a nursing home, you may be able to hold the nursing home accountable for negligence. Often, blocked pathways or unsafe furniture design are to blame. Other times, it could be a combination of medications that causes balance issues. Give us a call today.
Car accidents are another leading cause of traumatic brain injury. The impact of two vehicles colliding can create enough force to whip a person’s head back and forth. This is the basis of whiplash, which can cause long-term inflammation. It can also lead to cracked or compressed vertebrae in the neck, which may lead to necessary surgical procedures to fix. People can sustain a concussion at 5 miles per hour.
We tend to think of TBI as a one-time event. The truth is that a TBI is more like a chronic disease. According to research compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a moderate-to-severe TBI:
(All CDC summaries are based on patients still alive after five years.)
Like many other chronic diseases, TBI does not have a “cure” per se. Some patients will heal, but more than half will stay the same or worsen.
