Traumatic Brian Injury is a common accident injury

Traumatic brain injury is far more common that we think. I suspect we don't recognize how common it is because it's a hidden injury. There is no cast or bandage visible to signal the injury. It's important for people with TBI to understand that they aren't alone in their suffering, and that the pain, depression and confusion they feel is real.

Here are a few facts about TBI:

  • It is the leading cause of disability and death for ages 1-44
  • TBI is caused most often by car accidents, sports injuries, and slip and falls at home and at work.
  • Males are almost twice as likely to suffer a TBI
  • Experts suspect that many people who suffer a TBI are never diagnosed or treated as they do not report their injuries.
  • Symptoms of TBI can last from days to years.
  • TBI is thought to contribute to disorders such as dementia decades after injury.

Anytime you or someone you know suffers a blow to the head which results in unconsciousness, confusion, headache, or visible injury you should seek medical attention immediately.
