Every 21 seconds, someone suffers a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), according to the Brain Injury Association.  We see many clients who have undiagnosed Brain Injuries.  At the scene of the accident, the emergency tech is focused on treating the “life threatening” injuries and might only reference “hitting head” or “loss of consciousness”.  Therefore, the brain injury may be undiagnosed from the very beginning.

How do you know if you have suffered a Brain Injury?

A common myth is that you must lose consciousness in order to have suffered from a brain injury.  That is not true.  A mild traumatic brain injury may cause long term problems with symptoms that are not so obvious.  If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the following symptoms you may have a brain injury:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Drowsiness
  • Loss of Smell
  • Hearing Loss
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Amnesia
  • Short Term Memory Loss
  • Disorientation
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Apathy
  • Disorientation

Types of Brain Injury

There are many different types of Brain Injuries. Brain injuries are more likely than other injuries to result in death or permanent disability; however, some are less serious than others. Those with the most serious of brain injuries tend to have more visible symptoms like, speech problems, impaired cognitive functioning, and disability from employment, coma and very large hospital bills.  Those who suffer a brain injury may be referred to as the “walking wounded” because on the outside they seem normal. But, to family members, the difficulties are certainly noticeable.
