Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) can be caused by direct trauma or merely from the movement of the brain inside the head. Medical professionals now recognize that direct, blunt force trauma is not necessary to sustain a TBI. A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury, a concussion TBI. It is also now well understood that traumatic brain injuries may not show up on imaging scans such as MRIs. While hemorrhaging in the brain may be visible, many TBIs do damage at a level not detectable by current imaging technology. Traumatic brain injuries may require months or even years of treatment before maximum medical improvement is reached, treatment by specialists such as a concussion clinic, out-patient brain injury programs, physical medicine experts, neurologists, speech and balance therapists, physical therapy, and neuropsychology experts. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) can lead to a loss of cognitive functioning, mental processing, dizziness, word finding problems, emotional difficulties, mental fatigue, mood, memory problems, sense of smell issues, light sensitivity, headaches, as well as employment problems and loss of income. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant cause of disability in the United States, roughly 13.5 million individuals. Many brain injury victims live with significant disabilities. The economic impact of brain injuries as been estimated to be in the billions of dollars, with millions of emergency room visits, and thousands of hospitalizations and deaths from brain injuries. Falls, being struck by an object, and motor vehicle crashes are leading causes of brain injuries.
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can result in neurologic and functional impairments. A typically used brain injury severity scale is the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS): a GCS score of 13 to 15 is considered mild injury; 9 to 12 is considered moderate injury; and 8 or less is considered severe. Management of brain injuries may depend on whether the traumatic brain injury is due to severe trauma versus secondary which may continue for some time. One approach to concussions is to now refer patients to specialty concussion clinics and therapists to work to rehabilitate impairments, which we often see in our brain injury legal cases.
