What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury

Thursday, September 22, 2016By Richard Alexander
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), in the simplest terms, is an injury to the brain caused by some type of trauma. Anything that bumps, jolts, or penetrates the head can cause a TBI. The damage causes a change in brain function or pathology. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that TBIs contribute to the deaths of over 50,000 people every year. Even nonfatal TBIs can impact victims and their families for the rest of their lives.

The three main causes of TBI are falls, blunt trauma, and motor vehicle accidents. In fact, motor vehicle accidents are the second highest cause of TBI fatalities. Crashes are also the main cause of death for youth between the ages of five and 24. Also, hospitalizations of people between the ages of 15 and 44 are most often caused by motor vehicle accidents.

The effects of TBI can affect nearly every aspect of life and include the following:

• impaired senses, such as hearing or vision loss;

• changes in personality;

• an impaired ability to pay attention, concentrate, think, or remember;

• mood and personality changes, such as depression.

An experienced brain injury lawyer can help you get the best possible result in your TBI case. At Alexander Law Group, LLP, we hire the best experts to calculate your past, present, and future medical bills and your past present and future wage loss and loss of earning capacity.
