What is a brain injury?
Every 9 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a brain injury. Yet there are many misconceptions and gaps in knowledge among the general public. A brain injury affects how a person thinks, acts, and feels. The symptoms and impacts are wide ranging and can change everything about someone in a matter of seconds. This event affects both the survivor and their support network, so it's important to keep some things in mind when interacting with a survivor. The most important things to remember are:
- A person with a brain injury is a person first.
- No two injuries are exactly the same.
- The effects of the injury are complex and vary greatly from person to person.
- The effects of the injury depend on factors such as cause, location, and severity.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury, also called a TBI, occurs when brain function is altered by an external force. This can happen when something strikes the head, the head hits something, or a jolt causes sudden brain movement.
This trauma can be the result of many different circumstances, including car accidents, construction accidents, falls, workplace injuries, violence, and sports injuries.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury each year, and over 60,000 people die from brain injuries annually. Severe TBIs are often fatal.
The most common causes of TBI in the United States are motor vehicle accidents and falls. Other leading causes include assault, sports-related activities, and child abuse/neglect.
A TBI does not necessarily have to be a blow to the head or skull.
