The CDC defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) “as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating injury.” They point out that everyone is at risk for a TBI, particularly children and the elderly.
Each year, around 2.8 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury. Out of those:
Nearly one-third of all injury-related deaths in the US involve a TBI.
How do these injuries happen?
Children often suffer a TBI after they suffer a blow to the head and are allowed to continue to play sports. This can seriously worsen the problem.
When a person suffers a TBI, their symptoms will vary depending on the severity of the injury. For minor accidents, like concussions, the symptoms may just be a temporary headache with some nausea and vomiting.
For more severe cases, there is often speech problems, difficulty sleeping, and dizziness. People can suffer from cognitive impairment and problems with bodily functions. Some people recover from TBIs completely, while others have short or long-term disabilities. People who suffer from a TBI often develop depression and anxiety because of their impairments.
Medical expenses for TBIs can add up quickly, especially if a person has to undergo rehabilitation to get better. Sometimes, a person will not be able to return to work, causing them to lose income. If they are unable to return to work because of a disability, the livelihood of their family could be in jeopardy.
While we know that insurance may cover some of your expenses, it may not cover all of them. If some else was at fault for a traumatic brain injury, you may be eligible for more compensation.
