March Is Brain Injury Awareness Month

March Is Brain Injury Awareness Month

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are frighteningly common injuries. An estimated 1.7 million TBIs occur in the United States every year. Some people may recover from minor head trauma in a relatively short timeframe, but others can suffer debilitating consequences that alter their day-to-day lives forever. Brain injury victims might struggle with physical, emotional, communicative, and other impairments. They may also need rehabilitation and permanent assistance as a result.

Brain injuries are often dubbed “silent injuries” due to the fact that they’re not always apparent to others. A person might not even lose consciousness and still suffer a brain injury. All it takes is a movement forceful enough to impact the brain, such as a bad case of whiplash during a car accident or hitting your head on the pavement due to a bad fall.

In a tragic incident that occurred recently, American Olympian cyclist Kelly Catlin, 23, took her own life after suffering a concussion a few months earlier. Her sister Christine stated that Kelly had not mentally been the same since suffering the concussion. The brain is a very sensitive organ, and if a part of it is damaged, it can have catastrophic consequences.

Traumatic brain injury is often the result of a blow to the head. It may occur (but of course not always) if you are:

TBIs can have different symptoms, like disorientation, headache, dizziness, blurry vision, and nausea. They can also present with personality changes, like depression, irritability, emotional problems, and any other behavioral changes.

Sometimes it can take days for symptoms of a concussion to show. Remember, always get a head injury checked out by a medical professional. The sooner you or a loved one can get diagnosed and start rehabilitation, the better chances of healing.

Some traumatic brain injuries can take a lifetime of recovery, for the victim as well as their loved ones. It can take a huge toll emotionally as well as financially. If you believe someone else was to blame for the accident, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with a lawyer to review your case.
