What are Catastrophic Injuries?
- Spine injuries: Damage to the spine can result in loss of feeling in limbs, leading to paralysis in the arms or legs
- Burn injuries: Serious burns can cause permanent disfigurement and damage to nerves and muscles.
- Amputated limbs: Losing a limb can directly affect your quality of life and dramatically reduce your earning capacity.
- Permanent organ damage: Serious accidents can permanently damage vital organs, such as the heart, lungs or liver, causing life-threatening conditions.
WHAT IS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of catastrophic injury that is a major cause of disability in the United States. A TBI is caused by a blow to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The severity of a TBI may range from “mild” to “severe,” with most cases falling into the “mild” category.
WHAT ARE TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY SYMPTOMS?
“Mild” TBI side effects can last from as little as a few days whereas “severe” cases can last an entire lifetime. Effects of TBI can include impairments related to thinking, memory, movement, sensation (e.g., vision or hearing) and emotional functioning (e.g., personality changes and depression). These issues not only affect the injured individual, but can also have lasting effects on their families. In addition to these human harms, catastrophic injuries like TBI often lead to financial catastrophe due to the exorbitant health care and home nursing costs of managing these types of injuries.
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CAUSES
Approximately 1.5 to 2.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury every year in the U.S. Falls and motor vehicle accidents are the first and second leading causes of all TBI-related hospitalizations.
