Brain Damage Is More Common Than You Might Imagine

By Author Andrew Speaker, Esq.

When clients come to us that have suffered a serious brain injury, they are often surprised to learn how common brain injuries related to accidents are. More than 5.3 million people in the United States are living with long-term disabilities because of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Each year at least 1.4 million Americans suffer a TBI ? more than are struck by heart attacks.
A Truamatic Brain Injury can do significant damage without leaving any visible signs, so the initial injury is often dismissed as just a bump on the head by reviewing doctors.
Nearly forty percent of all truamatic brain injuries are the result of traffic accidents, by far the leading cause. As odd as it may sound, it is because cars are now safer than ever that we are seeing a rise in the number of TBIs. Many people that would not have survived a serious car accident 20 years ago are now living through the accident, but with permanent TBI. Unfortunately, unlike a broken bone, TBI often last forever. TBI can lead to slowed memory, lack of attention span, impaired judgment and memory loss. While therapy can help people cope with the trauma, brain damage last forever. There is some good information on the website about TBI, and we hope that if you or a loved one is suffering from TBI that you seek help in order to cope with the recovery process. Often relationships are taken to the breaking point or destroyed because it is so difficult to adjust to the new person. If there is any way we can help, please let us know, but the most important thing is to get help somewhere.
