About Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are more common than many people think. A slip and fall, motor vehicle accident, or workplace injury can cause head trauma that affects brain tissue. This injury is often systemic, impacting the victim’s overall mental and physical health.
It is difficult for doctors to assess the full repercussions in the early days of a brain injury. The initial effects of a TBI can be subtle, including mood swings and memory impairment. The nervous system, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal systems may be affected, with symptoms that can range from mild to severe.
Severe cases of TBI may affect speech and cause extensive cognitive impairments. There may be dramatic personality changes, and the victim may not even realize a catastrophic injury has occurred. The stress on loved ones in this type of situation cannot be overstated. Some brain injury victims must make a career change or can no longer earn a living at all. While the family faces loss of income (or loss of care for children by a stay-at-home parent), the costs for treatment, therapy, and other injury accommodations continue to add up.
