Symptoms of a TBI

After a car crash, you may not even realize you hurt your head. Common symptoms after a hit to the head include headache, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, nausea, tinnius (ringing in the ears), and vertigo (spinning). If you experience any of these symptoms, immediately seek medical attention. Afterwards, be on the lookout for changes in personality, rage, swearing, inability to sit still, balance problems, poor eyesight, headaches, muscle control issues, memory loss and disorientation.

Missouri Brain Injuries

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 St. Louis, 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.

Epidemiology of a Brain Injury & Statistics of TBI

  • 2 million affected each year, of which 15% will require a hospital stay and 5% will have some level of permanent disability.
  • 50,000 victims die each year from head trauma
  • Men double the risk as a woman
  • People between the ages of 15 and 24 are most likely to sustain a TBI.
  • Nationwide, traumatic brain injuries cost over $50 billion.
  • The most severe brain injuries can push lifetime costs over $8 million.
  • In Missouri, the cost for a TBI care is about $1000 per day
  • The acute phase of care averages around 50 days.
  • 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.

For every eight mild brain injuries, there is one moderate brain injury and one severe brain injury. Mild brain injuries sometimes require hospitalization. In addition, even mild brain injuries have the capability of impairing lives. Sometimes, family and friends may not even realize a loved on has suffered a TBI until that individual attempts to resume his or her normal daily activities.

Once the demands of daily life are once again imposed on the TBI victim, the effects of a TBI become pronounced. Many brain injury victims have psychological consequences from their inability to perform every day tasks like they once did. Memory loss can lead to lost wages and long term care issues.

Potential consequences of brain damage:

The effects of a TBI can vary. Some of the common conditions can include:

  • Loss of sense of self
  • Isolation from others
  • Memory problems
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Marital troubles
  • Unemployment
  • Financial strain
  • Drug and alcohol Abuse
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Inability to care for themselves
  • Exposing others to dangerous conditions

Family and friends of the brain injury victim will certainly be affected by these conditions. The physical and emotional exhaustion in caring for a loved one with a TBI can be overwhelming. Many times, families benefit from seeking guidance from a psychologist.

Common defenses to traumatic brain injury cases.

Insurance company lawyers will blame the physical and mental injuries on something else. This is what they are paid to do. They do this by hiring “experts” to disagree with the treating doctors. They then argue their clients did not cause the injury. These attorneys will look into every time you bumped your head, worked around chemicals, fell off a horse or even a bike. The latest defense tactic is to blame illicit drug use for causing the injury. This wild theory is asserted despite the fact that nearly 1 in 5 people over the age of 12 have used at least one illicit drug in the last year. You need to hire a lawyer who can educate the jury so they are not mislead by insurance company lawyers who peddle junk science.
