What Are They?
Traumatic brain injuries can be confusing to understand because they cover a wide range of things that can happen to your brain. There are more than 5.3 million people with disabilities caused by TBIs in the United States right now. Here are some common ways they can occur:
- Falls at home, while you are out, or at the workplace
- Violent acts (domestic violence, assault, robbery, etc.)
- Vehicle accidents
- Objects falling
- Sports accidents
Major traumatic brain injuries can affect a person’s cognitive ability and can significantly impact their lifestyle and ability to work.
Mild traumatic brain injuries, also known as concussions, are very common and occur at a high rate in children and teens. They should be taken seriously because a failure to properly treat them could lead to major injuries.
There are an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related concussions in the United States each year. Most of these occur in children and teens involved in sports. Schools and coaches have strict concussion protocols to follow in the event that a kid suffers a blow to the head because the effects on the brain from successive concussions are cumulative. If a player sustains another hit before they have had a chance to heal, brain damage could occur.
Treatment for all traumatic brain injuries can become expensive. This is especially true if long-term rehabilitation or in-home care is needed. Many times, a person who suffers from a TBI is unable to return to work. Their lost income can impact their entire family financially.
