Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe. Every year, approximately 2 million people sustain some level of brain injury. Of these 2 million victims:
Statistically, men are double the risk at sustaining a brain injury, and people the ages of 15 to 24 are most likely to sustain a traumatic brain injury. However, small children are at the greatest risk for severe brain injury as they have not fully developed. On the opposite end of the spectrum, seniors are also at a higher risk due to falling.
In Missouri, 44% of all brain injuries are caused in auto accidents, 26% are due to slip and falls, and 13% are the result of sports injuries. The remainder are caused by assaults and shootings.
Nationwide, severe brain injuries cost over $50 billion. Most victims of severe brain injuries will need some level of assisted care for the remainder of their lives. For those who suffer the most traumatic brain injuries, depending on age and life expectancy, the cost for medical and other care expenses can reach over $8 million. A Missouri brain injury costs around $1k/day for medical and the acute phase of care is around 50 days.
For every 8 mild brain injuries, there is one moderate brain injury and one traumatic injury. Mild brain injuries can require hospitalization. Additionally, even mild brain injuries can impair a life. Sometime, close family and friends may not even realize a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury until they attempt to resume his or her normal daily activities.
As soon as the demands of daily life are once again imposed on a brain injury victim in Columbia, the effects of the injury become pronounced. Many brain injury victims have psychological consequences from their inability to perform everyday tasks, as they once were able to.
Effects of a mild, moderate, or severe TBI can range from social to economic:
Family and friends of a brain injury victim will be heavily affected by these conditions. Both the physical and emotional exhaustion in caring for a loved one with a brain injury can easily be overwhelming. Many times, families will benefit from seeking guidance from a psychologist.
