Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Cause Lifelong Struggles

By Grant Law Office on May 7, 2012

Atlanta Traumatic Brain InjuryTraumatic brain injuries (TBI) occur when the brain is damaged in some way. A blow to the head frequently causes a traumatic brain injury known as a concussion, while an object penetrating the skull causes a different but also dangerous type of traumatic brain injury. Even a mild traumatic brain injury can cause lingering TBI symptoms, such as difficulties with memory, concentration, mood, sleep, balance, and head pain. Severe traumatic brain injuries can cause permanent disabilities or even death.

Approximately 1.4 million U.S. residents suffer a traumatic brain injury each year, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Common causes of traumatic brain injury include auto accidents, falls, blows to the head, and sports injuries. Explosions can also cause traumatic brain injuries, although these are less common among civilians than among members of the armed forces.

In some cases, traumatic brain injury can occur even if there is no direct blow to the head. Explosions can cause this, as can a severe whiplash injury such as those suffered in some kinds of car accidents. In these accidents, the effect of the explosion or whiplash causes the brain to move inside the skull, which can bruise or injure the brain’s tissues even if no object actually comes into contact with the outside of the skull.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause permanent damage.
