Traumatic Brain Injury A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs every 15 seconds to someone in the United States. Two to three million Americans suffer traumatic brain injuries every year and 75,000 people will result in having permanent deficits because of them. The effects of the injury can be severe or mild, but in any case the injury should not be taken lightly. Mild traumatic brain injuries can have long-term residual problems that interfere with daily life. Traumatic brain injury is often times overlooked by health care professionals due to minimal outward damage that may occur, which can lead to improper care and treatment.

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Traumatic brain injury occurs when:
  • the head is struck with force
  • the head strikes an object
  • the brain undergoes movement within the skull without visual trauma to the exterior of the head

The three leading causes of traumatic brain injury:

  • vehicle crashes
  • falls
  • sports injuries.

Results of a traumatic brain injury can be fatal, as results from the CDC have estimated that roughly 22% of TBI sufferers died according to the 1995-1996 national data. Symptoms such as impulsive behavior, loss of memory, personality changes, impaired perception, loss of taste and smell, diminished concentration, hearing and balance disorders, cognitive fatigue, concussions, comas, and epilepsy are commonly found in traumatic brain injury sufferers.

Between 9 billion and 10 billion dollars are used to treat traumatic brain injury patients each year. Long-term rehabilitative care may require an estimated $600,000 to 1.9 million dollars.

New Research Indicates Infection and Brain Injury Need More Study
According to new research, infections among premature newborns may play a larger role in causing brain injury than a lack of oxygen. Because brain injury in babies can often lead to cerebral palsy, the finding is very important since in the past experts believed a lack of oxygen at birth in preemies leads to periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), where cyst-like regions of white matter die.

PVL is the most common type of premature newborn brain injury that can result in cerebral palsy in 60 percent or more of the babies that live to adulthood. The study indicates a lot more brain injuries may actually be related to infection, not hypoxia. Doctors delivering premature infants can reduce possible risks of infection leading to brain injury by making sure the newborn has enough oxygen while closely monitoring for signs of infection.
