All Types of TBI Can Be Debilitating
TBI are classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the level
of neurological disruption or damage suffered by the brain. They can be
closed-head or penetrating injuries. Closed-head injuries are often difficult
to diagnose because the injured person may not lose consciousness and
may not display symptoms until weeks after the accident. This is especially
common with concussions/mild TBI.
Symptoms of TBI vary according to the severity of the injury, but may include:
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Personality or behavioral changes
- Nausea or vomiting
- Trouble sleeping
- Blurry vision
- Difficulty speaking
- Loss of consciousness
In severe TBI cases, the victim may have seizures or slip into a vegetative
state or coma.
Wrongful death may also occur.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that falls
are the leading cause of TBI.
Vehicle accidents are the second most common cause. Additional causes include
medical malpractice, falling objects, assault, and gunshot wounds.
