What is a traumatic brain injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as damage to the brain resulting from external mechanical force, such as rapid acceleration or deceleration. It can be caused by a variety of accidents, such as motor vehicle accidents and falls, and the injury can be mild or severe. A brain injury can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms vary from person to person.
Mild brain injuries are the most prevalent type of TBI, and the most difficult to diagnose. They can often be missed at the time of the injury, but still have long-term symptoms, including fatigue, headaches, visual disturbances, memory loss, poor concentration, irritability, depression and seizures. Moderate and severe brain injuries occur when the victim loses consciousness from 20 minutes to more than six hours as a result of the trauma. The impact of these TBIs are usually extensive and lifelong, including everything from physical paralysis to difficulty speaking or understanding speech to loss of vision and other senses.
When your loved one is dealing with a TBI, they may require a wide variety of treatments and rehabilitation – and they should never have to worry about the insurance companies and the courts.
