According to the Brain Association of Ohio, an estimated 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, this causes 500,000 deaths. Out of that 1.7 million only 1.1 million seek medical attention and get treated for it. In the United States, car accidents are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries.
TBI results from most car accidents because of the aggressive strain back and forth. This can cause much damage to the brain and is the source of TBI. This can occur and is very risky and dangerous because there is no visible sign of TBI. People who suffer from TBI will not seek any treatment because they would not realize they were experiencing a memory loss, or no control of emotions.
Since TBI is not realized after car accidents people tend to experience most of these symptoms and not realize they need to seek medical attention. This results in prolonged treatment, depression, and
Cognitive deficits including difficulties with:
- Attention Span
- Difficulty concentrating
- Easily Distracted
- Loss of Memory
- Speech Confusion
