Traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to any damage to the brain caused by
external forces. No visible injury is necessary and, in many cases, effects
on the brain may not be apparent until days, weeks, or months after the
accident. It is not necessary to have hit your head and you do not need
to have lost consciousness to have suffered a brain injury. There are
many different types of brain injuries and they can range considerably
in severity. Common side effects are:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentration, speaking, or multitasking
- Blurred or double vision
- Change in personality
- Dizziness, disorientation, nausea, and vomiting
- Severe headaches
- Ringing in the ears
TBI can profoundly impact victims' well-beings, as well as the lives
of their loved ones. Although TBI is often caused during accidents involving
blunt force trauma – including auto accidents, slip and falls, and
sports injuries – any situation that results in head trauma should
be taken seriously. According to the Brain Injury Association of America,
more than 1.5 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year.
Just as frightening is the fact that at least 50,000 of those people will
die from their brain injury while another 80,000 will be left with long-term
