Traumatic brain injuries are one of the leading causes of disability in the United States, and can be caused by blows or jolts to the head during collisions with trucks or cars, plane or boating accidents, physical assaults, falls, and other incidents.
Non-traumatic brain injuries can be caused by lack of oxygen to the brain, strokes, cardiac arrest or medical errors.
In addition to affecting physical abilities, brain injuries can lead to serious and often permanent changes in personality, mental ability, emotional responses, communication skills and more. Victims may become confused, irritated, depressed or even violent. It can be a very difficult situation for family members.
Depending on the type and severity of the injury, these changes can fade over time or have a lifetime impact.
