Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is damage to the brain caused by an external physical force that leaves an individual with significant problems in physical functioning, social skills and the ability to think. There are physical of brain injuries, such as the ability to pay attention, bladder and bowel problems. Anyone is at risk of brain injury; however males 15-24, child abuse victims, and the elderly are at risk the most. There are also behavioral symptoms as well. These include restlessness, impulsive behavior, anxiety, depression, frustration, aggression and irritability, lack of desire and difficulty in controlling emotions.

While there is a very diverse range of what can cause a traumatic brain injury, there are several common causes of brain injuries. The four most common causes of traumatic brain injuries are:

  • Falls - 28%
  • Motor vehicle - traffic crashes – 20%
  • Struck by/against events - 19%
  • Assault and Battery - 11%
Statistics of Brain Injuries in the U.S.:
  • Approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) ranging from mild to severe
  • 230,000 people are hospitalized due to TBI ands survive
  • 80,000 to 90,000 Americans experience onset of long-term disability from TBI
  • 51,000 people die from TBI
  • More than 1 million are treated in emergency departments for TBI
  • An estimated $56 billion is spent on direct and indirect costs as a result of all TBI

Because a brain injury can cause physical, cognitive and emotional consequences that can affect a person for a lifetime, it is important that brain injury is understood and that competent, highly qualified legal help be obtained. Brain injuries can result from any number of events, including catastrophic collisions and accidents, negligent care in a hospital resulting in oxygen deprivation, and adverse drug or product reactions.
