Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
A traumatic brain injury occurs when a blow to the head damages the brain. The damage may be caused by a penetrating head injury, such as when an object enters the skull, or by a closed head injury. Motor vehicle accidents are the predominant cause of traumatic brain injuries. Other common causes of traumatic brain injuries include sporting accidents, falls, and violent crimes.
When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury, the extent of the injury depends on the areas of the brain that were damaged. Persons with traumatic brain injuries may exhibit memory loss, paralysis, sensory loss, diminished cognitive functions and communication problems. These symptoms may be permanent. Sometimes, brain injury victims may not recognize the extent of their injuries until weeks after the injuries had occurred.
Traumatic brain injuries can seriously alter the lives of their victims. People who have suffered severe traumatic brain injuries may need to depend on family members or other caregivers to attend to their basic needs on a long-term basis. Even people displaying less severe symptoms may discover that a slight loss in coordination or slower cognitive ability prevents them from performing their work at the same level as before their injury. Accordingly, the medical, recovery, and costs of living with a traumatic brain injury can be very high.
