Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are complex injuries with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. The impact on a person and his or her family can be devastating. Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. In 2010 2.5 million TBIs occurred either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries.
Often times, a brain injury may go undiagnosed because the “cause” of the injury might not appear significant. The recent National Football League class action lawsuit has increased awareness of how what may appear to be “slight” impact, or repeated blows to the head, as opposed to a sudden, severe trauma, can cause a debilitating cognitive injury resulting in severe disability.
Like other catastrophic injuries, living with and properly managing a traumatic brain injury requires significant, continuing medical care (physicians, nurses, therapists, counselors, home health).
