Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects one or more area of the brain, often causing victims to suffer impairment to memory, vision, communication, and/or mobility. Typically caused by a sudden, violent blow to the head – such as the impact of a victim’s head with a dashboard during a car accident – even seemingly minor head injuries can produce long-term problems.
Consequences Of Traumatic Brain Injury
- Cognitive: Short- or long-term memory loss; spatial disorientation; difficulty concentrating, communicating, or planning.
- Psychological/Behavioral: Anxiety; depression; mood swings; agitation; impulsivity.
- Physical: Seizures; headaches; speech impairment; partial or complete paralysis of the body; vision, hearing, smell or taste loss.
