Traumatic Brain and Head Injuries Information
According to the definition developed by the Brain Injury Association of America, a “traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an insult to the brain, not of a degenerative or congenital nature, which is caused by an external physical force that may produce a diminished or altered state of consciousness, and which results in the disturbance of behavioral or emotional functioning”
Over one and a half million people sustain traumatic brain injuries each year and almost one hundred thousand of these brain damaged victims are left to cope with lifelong disabilities. Many brain injury survivors suffer behavioral, physical, cognitive and emotional obstacles and can need care and rehabilitation for many years to come.
While transportation accidents, which include accidents involving automobiles, trucks, trains, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians and scooters, account for most cases of traumatic brain injury, sports - football, baseball, skiing, skating, and horseback riding - where helmets are worn to protect against acquired brain injury also contribute to this problem. Also, acquired brain injury may occur from medical malpractice, prenatal care and birth injuries.
