Dealing With a Serious Brain Injury
Suffering a brain injury in an accident can be one of the most traumatic experiences of an injured accident victim’s life. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can have a range of effects on a person physically, emotionally, socially, behaviorally, and cognitively, depending on the extent of the damage suffered. Individuals who suffer from this type of acquired brain injury may be able to recover with available treatment or rehabilitation, but some injuries prove fatal.
Brain injuries are a major cause of death around the world. This type of trauma can be caused by a range of events including motorcycle accidents, automobile accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, construction accidents, fall accidents, sports accidents, injuries related to the use of firearms and other potentially injurious activities or types of accidents. An estimated 2 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury in the United States each year, with about 25% requiring hospitalizations.
Brain injury statistics show a mortality rate for TBI of about 21 percent within 30 days following an injury. Medical advancements however, have significantly improved the death rate, which was much higher prior to innovations in trauma management and modern medical brain injury services. Brain injury recovery can be achieved through brain injury treatment or brain injury rehab in cases of mild brain injury as well as severe brain injury.
