The Brain Can Suffer Trauma from Various Causes
Chicago Lawyers: Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury is one that is caused by a blow or other "trauma" to the head forceful enough to cause a temporary or permanent disruption in brain function. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be mild or severe. Often, the trauma is minor, but the injury quite severe! Symptoms range from a headache or a mild concussion to seizure disorders, coma and death.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury, followed by motor vehicle crashes, being struck by an object or striking the head against something, and, finally, assaults.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, every year in the U.S.:
- One million people are treated and released from hospital emergency departments as a result of traumatic brain injury.
- 230,000 people are hospitalized and survive.
- 80,000 people acquire some TBI-related disability.
- 50,000 people die as a result of TBIs.
An estimated 5.3 million Americans are living today with a disability related to traumatic brain injury.
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury even a mild one you may no longer be able to do the work you once enjoyed. TBIs can affect your memory and cause emotional upsets, confusion and difficulty "thinking straight."
