The Dangers of a TBI
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a jolt, blow, or penetration to the head causes an injury to the brain and affects over 1.7 million Americans every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a TBI is known as a “silent epidemic” because TBIs and their complications aren’t always easy to notice and address.
A TBI can cause a range of short or long-term changes in the brain, depending on the nature of the accident and factors including where the head was struck and how much force was applied.
TBIs are extremely dangerous in that they can affect functional abilities including:
- Language, including communication and understanding
- Emotion, which can result in depression, anxiety, aggression, and personality changes
- Sensation, such as sight and the ability to balance
- Thinking, including memory and reasoning
TBIs can also cause epilepsy and increase the risk in individuals for one day developing brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. They can also result in comas or the need or medically induced comas, and in some cases cause victims to lapse into a vegetative, or brain-dead, state.
Common accidents that can cause TBIs include auto accidents, including accidents involving cars, motorcycles, and trucks, as well as slip and fall accidents and other premises liability accidents. Sometimes, it can be difficult to know if you suffered a TBI after an accident. It’s important to be aware of several key symptoms that are indicators of a traumatic injury. Even a symptom as harmless as a headache can signal towards a more serious underlying injury that should be treated by a medical professional as soon as possible.
Some symptoms of a traumatic brain injury to be aware of include:
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Difficulty sleeping, or sleeping more than usual
- Nausea or vomiting
- Memory or concentration problems
- Mood changes or mood swings
- Loss of coordination
- Convulsions or seizures
- Problems with speech
