Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A TBI is defined as a nondegenerative, noncongenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force that can lead to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness.
Not all brain injuries are categorized as TBIs and non-traumatic brain injuries can result in symptoms similar to those of a TBI.
The Center for Disease Control reports that falls are the cause of 40% of brain injuries that result in hospitalization or death. Older people and children under the age of 14 are most vulnerable to fall-related TBIs. It is estmated that 15% of TBIs occured when someone was hit by an object. Motor vehicle crashes caused approximately 14% of TBIs and 10% were due to violent assaults.
While a TBI is always serious, just because a brain injury is not classified as one does not mean that is not serious and possibly life changing or threatening. Many brain injury victims and their families have found it helpful to discuss their situation with a lawyer who understands brain injuries and personal injury law.
