Traumatic Brain Injuries in Lubbock and Northwest Texas
Other parties may act carelessly or recklessly, creating the potential for serious injuries. In some of the most serious cases, their victims sustain traumatic brain injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the top two causes of TBI-related hospitalizations, which often result from negligence, include:
- Falls: 52% of all TBI-related hospitalizations were due to falls.
- Motor vehicle accidents: 20% of all TBI-related hospitalizations were attributed to car accidents.
While some TBIs are relatively minor and allow the victim to heal in a few weeks, many others cause serious medical complications. Brain injuries come with several symptoms that may require the person to obtain ongoing care.
According to medical research published in the British Medical Journal, the psychiatric effects can prove more debilitating than physical injuries. Some psychiatric issues following a TBI include:
- Attention, concentration, and focus
- Decision making and executive function
- Self-control and behavior
- Mood regulation
Because of the cognitive and behavioral consequences of many moderate and serious TBIs, victims of TBI accidents may live with depression, anxiety, and substance abuse concerns. Victims may also lack the social skills necessary to build and maintain relationships both in their personal and professional lives. This condition can cause significant stress for the entire family.
