About Traumatic Brain Injury
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) define Traumatic Brain Injury as a disruption in normal brain function caused when the head suffers a bump, blow, jolt, or penetrating injury. Currently, one in 60 people in the United States lives with disabilities related to a TBI.
Causes of Brain Injury
According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common causes of Traumatic Brain Injury are falls, vehicle-related collisions, and high-impact sports injuries—with falls presenting the greatest overall risk to both older adults and young children.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
In the wake of a concussion or other TBI, common symptoms will typically include:
- Difficulty Thinking or Concentrating
- Headache or Blurred Vision
- Nausea, Vomiting, or Dizziness
- Sensitivity to Light or Noise
- Abnormal Sleep Patterns or Habits
If an accident victim experiences worsening headache, weakness, numbness, loss of coordination, or slurred speech; they should seek medical help immediately. The same holds for anyone who may experience convulsions or seizures, exhibit unusual behavior, or lose consciousness. Other warning signs include unusual agitation or restlessness, confusion, or dilation of the pupils.
