Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injuries Are Often Devastating

Sometimes called traumatic brain injuries, or TBI, brain injuries can be catastrophic. TBI victims may lose their ability to work, have a meaningful relationship with a spouse or companion, and may face a lifetime of struggle and hardship.

Brain injuries occur all too frequently in the United States. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports the following annual national statistics about TBI:

  • About 1.5 million people sustain a TBI
  • Approximately 50,000 people die
  • Roughly 235,000 are hospitalized
  • An estimated 1.1 million are treated and released from a hospital emergency room

How a Traumatic Brain Injury May Occur

A traumatic brain injury may occur as a result of something striking the head with force and causing direct physical damage to the brain. A victim may sustain an open head injury (penetration of the skull) or a closed head injury (a blow to the head that does not involve penetration of the skull). In either case, brain damage may occur. Common side effects from a brain injury include the inability to remember, think clearly, or control emotions.

The following types of accidents may result in brain injury:
