The risk factors for traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries, known as "TBIs" in the medical field, can be life-changing injuries for anyone who suffers from them. Victims can be left without full use of their bodies due to paralysis, resulting in permanent disability. And as most of our readers in Connecticut know, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries throughout the country. The more serious the car accident, the greater the chance that someone involved will suffer a TBI.

Concussions are common brain injuries in accidents

Football season is in full swing, and many of our readers have probably seen the news coverage about the concussions that occur on a weekly basis in both the National Football League and in college football. But some people may not realize that concussions aren't just a concern for athletes - accident victims can, and often do, suffer concussions as well.

As a result, a victim suffers a head trauma, causing present and future mental and health problems. While medical advancements have come a long way for brain injury sufferers, it is still a rough and long road of recovery.

Understanding the parameters and severity of brain trauma

There is a wide array of events that are unexpected. Despite them being unforeseen, residents in Connecticut and other states experience these surprising and unfortunate event, with one of them being a serious accident. Suffering brain trauma in a catastrophic incident can change a person's life in an instant. This does not only alter his or her life immediately but in the long-term as well.

The different types and levels of brain injuries

Being involved in any type of accident can be scary and emotional. Whether it is a car accident, work accident or a slip-and-fall, residents in Connecticut and elsewhere can be severely impacted by these incidents. This is especially true if the accident caused head trauma. An injury to the brain could leave a victim with serious side effects, even causing temporary or permanent damage.

Brain injuries have many sources. For example, many people in Hartford might suffer a traumatic brain injury in a car accident. A brain injury could also result from a sporting accident, such as a football or diving injury, or one could hit his or her head on the ground in a slip-and-fall accident. In the end, it is important to have an understanding about such injuries. To that end, March has been designated as National Brain Injury Awareness Month.
