What Causes TBI?
A large percentage of traumatic brain injuries are caused by motor vehicle collisions. This doesn’t come as a surprise especially if you consider the amount of force that’s created when two or more vehicles collide (particularly when they’re traveling at high speeds).
However, vehicular accidents aren’t the only causes of traumatic brain injuries. They can also be caused by sports accidents, slip and fall accidents, and assault and battery (particularly cases that involve heavy weapons).
The Long-Term Effects of TBI
Patients with traumatic brain injury usually experience dizziness, nausea, and other symptoms immediately after the incident or a few hours after it. But, depending on how severe your injuries are, you might develop symptoms that last for a long time. Some common examples include chronic headaches, vision problems, and difficulties in speech, memory, and concentration. You might even have problems with learning new skills and develop balance and motor function problems along with mild to severe personality changes.
The Costs of Brain Injury Treatment and Management
Even mild TBI can have a huge (and often negative) effect on the patient’s quality of life. Because of this, many people with traumatic brain injuries have to go through various medical treatments as well as neurological and psychological rehabilitation, which are often expensive. TBI can also interfere with one’s ability to work, which means that patients can lose their job and run into financial problems caused by the lack of income.
