Traumatic brain injuries and spinal injuries are often permanent, life-
changing, and affect the lives of both victims and their families. These
injuries may have happened because of others' actions, and may involve:

  • Physician or surgical error
  • Birth injury
  • Automobile collisions
  • Motorcycle or bicycle collisions
  • Construction site occurrences
  • Vehicle and pedestrian accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Chemical, environmental or workplace exposures
  • Defective workplace or household products
  • Recreational equipment or machinery failures

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when something outside the body
hits the head with significant force. Whether it is a head hitting the
windshield during a car accident, an impact from a fall, head injuries
received during sports or other recreational activities, or trauma from a
nearby blast or explosion, TBI can cause changes in a person’s ability to
think, control emotions, walk, or speak, and can also affect sense of
sight or hearing.

TBI can be mild to severe. Mild traumatic brain injury refers to brief
changes in or loss of consciousness. Severe traumatic brain injury
refers to longer periods of unconsciousness and memory loss around
the event. While it may be easier to diagnose moderate to severe TBI,
changes caused by any TBI could significantly affect many areas of a
person’s life.

TBI can result in changes in a person’s physical functioning, thinking
abilities or cognitive function, and behavioral effects and they are often
interrelated. These effects sometimes cause other difficulties such as
sleeping problems, depression, and anxiety.

Physical symptoms and effects may include:

  • Headaches
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Blurry eyesight
  • Trouble hearing
  • Loss of energy
  • Change in sense of taste or smell
  • Dizziness or trouble with balance
  • Cognitive effects may include:
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Trouble with attention
  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Repeating things
  • Behavioral effects may include:
  • Becoming angry easily
  • Getting frustrated easily
  • Acting without thinking
