Brain injuries or traumatic brain injuries occur in more than 1.5 million people each year. Out of that 1.5 million, 50,000 die from their injury and more than 80,000 have long-term disabilities because of it. The brain is the most fragile and most important organ in your body. While auto accidents and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of brain injury, there are other things that can cause a traumatic injury to this precious area.
When a traumatic brain injury occurs, it can lead to serious medical disorders including skull fractures, seizures, amnesia, hemorrhage, and hematomas. The symptoms of a brain injury could be crippling for the individual suffering through them. Some injuries a person could encounter include, but are not limited to:
• Loss of memory
• Dizziness or balance difficulties
• Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
• Different taste and smells
• Impaired or lack of judgment
• Severely blurred vision
• Reduced attention
• Difficulty concentrating
• Depression or anxiety
• Personality issues
