What is a Traumatic Brain Injury (CTE)?

Every single year, nearly 3 million people suffer from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and of these numbers, over 50 thousand people will die from it. In the cases where the victim does not die, they can suffer from permanent and devastating complications from the injury, changing their lives – and the lives of their loved ones – forever.

A traumatic brain injury (also known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE), occurs when the brain sustains a serious injury due to severe impact to the head. This can also include puncture injuries, not only from sharp objects or weapons, but also from your own bone tissue piercing your brain. If that sounds awful, it’s because it is awful. A TBI/CTE can not only rob somebody of their life, it can change them as a person. They may suffer from personality changes, or they can become so permanently disabled that they can no longer take care of themselves after the injury. This can put strain on a family, especially if a spouse or a parent finds themselves suddenly the caregiver of the victim.

Common causes of TBI/CTE include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Automobile accidents
  • Violence (random or domestic)
  • Fall injuries
  • Combat injuries

The complications that can arise after a traumatic brain injury can vary, but are always tragic. The victim may start to develop seizures. They may be dizzy all the time and suffer from vertigo and debilitatingly painful headaches. They may have tinnitus (ringing in the ear) or permanent hearing loss. Loss of taste and other sensations may also occur. Paralysis and cognitive impairment are not uncommon side effects of a TBI, including memory problems and mood swings. They may not be able to work, and treatment for TBI/CTE can be quite costly. Medical bills may start to pile up.
