Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are one of the most serious types of injuries an individual can suffer yet, because they are not visible to the human eye, they tend to be overlooked. Traumatic brain injuries affect both individuals and their families. Not only can an individual’s personality, memory, reason and temperament be affected, so can his or her relationships and ability to work and earn a living. The sad reality is that people with traumatic brain injuries may never recover, necessitating the need for life-long care.
Brain damage can occur in any accident involving head trauma, other trauma, falls, malpractice, or motor vehicle accidents. (In 2010 alone, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation reported 162 people in the province of Ontario suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a motor vehicle accident.) Interestingly, it can also be caused without a direct blow to the head, as in the case of whiplash. Injuries can range in severity from mild to severe and require different types of treatment. While less severe brain injuries might be able to be addressed with cognitive therapies, speech and language therapies and assistance with daily living, more severe brain injuries require immediate and special attention, possibly involving surgery.
