WHAT IS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI)?
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines traumatic brain injury (TBI) as: “a form of acquired brain injury, occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of a TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain.
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY SYMPTOMS
A person with mild TBI may remain conscious or may experience a loss of consciousness for a few seconds or minutes. Other symptoms of mild TBI include headache, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking. A person with a moderate or severe TBI may show these same symptoms, but may also have a headache that gets worse or does not go away, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation.
ROLLOVER ACCIDENTS AND TBI
Rollover accidents are a common cause of traumatic brain injury and related-deaths, many rollover deaths occur in sports utility vehicles or SUVs. The reason is that some SUVs are defectively designed, making them less stable and more likely to flip during a car crash. The increased risk of vehicle rollovers in SUVs has been well documented and vehicle manufacturers are well aware of this threat. However, they often choose financial gain over design changes which could prevent thousands of traumatic brain injuries each year.
