Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head. A traumatic brain injury can occur as the result of a fall, sports or work-related injury, car crash, assault or any number of other ways. More than half of all traumatic brain injuries are caused by falls, while nearly 20 percent are caused by auto accidents.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range from mild (a concussion) to severe and may require extensive medical care or surgery. In the United States, traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability. According to the Centers for Disease Control, TBIs contribute to more than 30 percent of all injury-related deaths, while thousands of other victims will experience permanent disability due to traumatic brain injury.

A majority (75 percent) of traumatic brain injuries are mild injuries or concussions. Signs of a mild brain injury include:

  • Brief unconsciousness or confusion
  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating

One-quarter of all traumatic brain injury cases are severe. Individuals who have experienced a severe traumatic brain injury may experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Unconsciousness lasting more than 30 minutes
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Abnormal or slurred speech
  • Serious Cognitive issues

Medical care for a traumatic brain injury, as well as long-term care is expensive and for the injured and their families, these expenses can be crippling.
