Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can change your life
Brain trauma injuries are very serious, may cause permanent damage or death, and have a major impact on the victims as well as their families. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are more than 2.5 million traumatic brain injuries each year. Motor vehicle accidents result in the highest percentage of traumatic brain injury deaths.
Impacts of traumatic brain injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can result from a blow or jolt to the head caused by contact in a serious auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or construction site accident. Severity ranges from a mild concussion to a major penetrating head wound.
These injuries can impact every part of the victim’s life, and the cost of medical care can eat up a family’s life savings. Victims who survive a traumatic brain injury may face:
- Periods of unconsciousness or coma
- Memory loss
- Impaired balance and coordination
- Trouble seeing or hearing
- Severe anxiety or depression
