Corpus Christi Brain Injury Attorney
What is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
Each year there are roughly 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries or “TBIs” in the U.S. We hear all the time about concussion syndrome in football players and boxers. Brain injuries often occur during car accidents and truck accidents, but can be caused by almost any bump, blow, or jolt to the head. There doesn’t even have to be blunt-force trauma to the head — an abrupt, forceful change of motion can move the brain inside the skull and cause the brain to slam against the skull wall.
Brain injuries come in many different varieties, from the most severe — where one is now functioning at a level well below where they were prior to the incident — to a mild condition. A concussion is an example of a mild form of brain injury that often leads only to a temporary impairment, but may also possibly lead to full impairment. In cases of more severe brain injury, the victim could experience a loss of memory, a change in personality, a decrease in the ability to communicate and understand others, an inability to walk or use their motor functions, a decrease in IQ, and a loss of taste.
