About Traumatic Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are some of the most serious injuries that anyone can sustain. The brain is the central organ in the body that is responsible for memory, proper bodily function, thought processing, and motor skills. Depending on which part of the brain is damaged, one or multiple functions that once seemed second nature to a person before the accident can become challenging or nearly impossible. Because of a traumatic brain injury, a once vibrant person who excelled at playing sports, for example, could have a challenging time even tying his or her shoes.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur without warning, and this type of catastrophic injury occurs more frequently than many people realize. Potential causes include:
- Car crashes
- Truck collisions
- Slip and fall accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Sports injuries
- Attacks and assaults
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.7 million individuals will suffer a traumatic brain injury this year. The CDC also notes that falls account for 35.2% of traumatic brain injuries, followed by motor vehicle accidents at 17.3%, struck by/against incidents at 16.5%, and assaults at 10%. (21% of traumatic brain injury causes are considered to be “unknown/other” by the CDC.)
Long-Term Effects of Brain Injuries
A blow to the head can temporarily or permanently diminish physical abilities, negatively change emotional well-being, impair cognitive skills, and even change a person’s behavior. Trauma to the cerebrum could affect behavior, motor skills, language, and emotion. Brain injury in the cerebellum could very likely affect the movement of the limbs. Injuries to the brain stem may affect physical growth and hormones. The brain is so terribly complex that even the smallest trauma can change someone’s life forever.
There are multiple factors that go into determining how well an individual with a traumatic brain injury will recover. Age, overall health, circumstances of the accident, and extent of brain damage that has been sustained all contribute to the recovery process. A younger person may recover partial or full brain function with the help of rehabilitation while an older person may not recover as quickly. In cases of traumatic brain injury, there is always a chance that the damage could prove fatal.
The Cost of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The CDC reports the annual cost to society for medical care and lost wages resulting from brain injuries is approximately $60 billion. Many patients struggle to get the proper care they deserve. Others simply cannot afford the care they so desperately need. With brain injuries, rehabilitation can be just as important as the initial hospitalization. Sometimes, heath insurance may not cover the medical and rehabilitation fees or the insurance company may simply drop coverage after a period of time.
