4 Signs You May Have an Undiagnosed Traumatic Brain Injury
If you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you should visit your local emergency room or urgent care center immediately to receive a diagnosis and subsequent treatment. If a medical professional determines that you have suffered a TBI as a result of another party’s negligence and your health has been (or will continue to be) affected, you may also need the assistance of a compassionate and experienced attorney with a documented history advocating for victims of TBI.
Traumatic Brain Injuries Are on the Rise in the U.S.
Although more and more individuals are becoming educated and aware of the dangers of traumatic brain injuries, many victims of this potentially lethal injury are unaware that they have even sustained one.
Here are some chilling statistics about TBIs in the United States:
- TBIs are the cause of 1 in every 6 injury-related hospital visits.
- Nearly 30% of all injury-related deaths in America are the result of a TBI (roughly 52,000 every year).
- 138 people die every day from an injury including a TBI.
- Car accidents are the third leading cause of TBI and the second leading cause of TBI-related deaths.
Additionally, TBIs account for about 1.4 million emergency room visits each year, yet it’s estimated that there are 1.7 million occurrences of this injury annually. That disparity is alarming and is likely due to people not fully understanding the signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injuries.
4 Signs That You Have an Undiagnosed TBI
It’s unfortunate that so many people suffer a TBI but fail to receive a diagnosis and treatment. These injuries could have lifelong impacts and can result in death if not treated properly. However, if you and your family are aware of the signs and symptoms of TBI, you will be more likely to recognize these injuries in the event that they occur (or have already occurred).
