Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

For many victims, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are largely invisible injuries. Even after cuts, scrapes, bruises, and stitches have healed, TBIs often continue to impact victims for months, years, or even a lifetime.

Life after a TBI can feel extremely isolating. But we are here to say that you are not alone. GDH Law is a proud legal advocate for accident and injury victims living with TBIs. And as part of our legal advocacy, we are intimately familiar with just how widespread this type of injury truly is.

Let’s take a closer look at traumatic brain injury facts and statistics.

You are not alone. GDH Law is a powerful ally for those who have been injured by the negligent or reckless actions of others.

Signs and Symptoms of a TBI

It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you or a loved one has hit their head or been involved in an accident. Prompt treatment can alleviate symptoms associated with TBIs, and early intervention can even lessen the severity and long-term impact of these injuries.

If you’re unsure whether you need care, we always recommend caution—it’s better to be safe rather than sorry.

Go immediately to the emergency room, call 911, or have a friend transport you to the hospital if you begin experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms of a TBI:

  • A headache that gets worse or won’t go away
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Drowsiness or extreme fatigue
  • Loss of balance or dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sensitivity to sound and light
  • Confusion
  • Loss of consciousness (even briefly)
  • Concentration or memory problems
  • Mood changes
  • Sleeping disturbances
  • Clear fluid leaking from the nose or ears
  • Unnatural pupil dilation
  • Numbness or weakness in the extremities

Children often display different signs of head injuries. Parents, guardians, or caregivers should be on the lookout for the following symptoms:

  • Uncharacteristic irritability
  • Frequent or constant crying
  • Lethargy or drowsiness
  • Change in sleeping habits (either too much or too little)
  • Change in attention span
  • Seizures
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities or toys
  • Unexplainable sad mood

Never ignore signs of a head injury in either adults or children. Without treatment, an injury can progress rapidly. And any subsequent hit, bump, blow, or jolt may cause a secondary worsening of the initial injury.

Understanding the Different Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Medical experts break traumatic brain injuries into two broad categories:

  1. Closed brain injury – A non-penetrating brain injury without any breakage of the skull. May be caused by a bump, jolt, blow, hit, or rapid back and forth movement that causes the tearing, bruising, and shearing of brain tissue.
  2. Open (penetrating) brain injury – A penetrating brain injury caused by a foreign object breaching the skull and piercing or hitting the brain.

Over the long-term, traumatic brain injury survivors may continue to experience speech difficulties, struggle to think logically, or have trouble understanding other people when they talk. Performing daily tasks that were once familiar and regular can become virtually impossible.
