Understanding brain injuries

Brain injuries can occur in a variety of different ways. Each year in the United States, nearly three million people sustain a traumatic brain injury. Out of those injuries, approximately 50,000 people die, and around 282,000 people are hospitalized.

Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:

  • car accidents
  • truck accidents
  • pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • sports and recreation incidents
  • workplace accidents
  • defective products
  • slip and fall incidents
  • violence
  • medical mistakes

Traumatic brain injury victims can suffer from a range of symptoms. In many cases, these symptoms are short-term. However, the following symptoms can also be permanent:

  • seizures and convulsions
  • loss of bodily function
  • cognitive impairment
  • emotional and psychological problems
  • lapses in memory
  • changes in sleep patterns
  • slurred speech
  • nausea and vomiting
  • drastic changes in mood
  • personality changes

It should be noted that concussions are also a form of brain injury. If a concussion is not properly treated, it can become a more serious injury that leads to permanent brain damage.
