National Brain Injury Awareness Month in March alerts us to the causes and aims to eliminate the stigma surrounding brain injuries.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious disease that occurs when a person sustains disrupted brain function after a blow or jolt to the head.
Believe it or not, an estimated 5.3 million men, women, and children are living with a permanent TBI-related disability in the United States today.
Because auto accidents can inflict powerful forces on the bodies of those inside the car, it is not uncommon for victims of auto accidents to experience injuries of this nature. The CDC listed auto accidents as the second highest cause of TBI-related hospitalizations in the United States, accounting for approximately 20% of hospitalizations.
For those impacted, learning more about TBI and what you can do to manage these conditions is important as you strive to return to your normal way of life.
TBI can impact your life in many ways. Because your brain is the command center of your body, victims can experience both physical, mental, and even emotional repercussions. Being the victim of a TBI can be very tragic for you and your loved ones, but you can receive medical, emotional, and legal support as you adjust to your needs during this challenging time.
Dealing with a TBI can be incredibly stressful and difficult for you and your loved ones. Every aspect of your life could be affected by this devastating injury. While you may be rightfully focused on your health and recovery, it is also important to keep in mind that you could have legal options available to you.
