Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is sometimes experienced in various types of accident injuries, including vehicle accidents, nursing home accident injuries, and other types of injuries, including those in sports.
On this site, the issue of traumatic brain injury is further discussed on the “Traumatic Brain Injury” (TBI) page.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced on March 2, 2015 that March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
As stated by the CDC:
A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head and can affect how a person feels, thinks, acts, and learns. A TBI not only impacts the life of an individual and their family, but it also has a large societal and economic toll.
The CDC offers safety tips to help prevent TBI, including reminders to wear seat belts while traveling in vehicles; using appropriate car seats; and for sports, wearing appropriate helmets.
Also, TBI among the elderly is an important topic. This topic is further discussed on the Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Attorney site on a page titled “Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) In The Elderly.”
The CDC has established two pages dedicated to awareness, prevention, and identification of TBI. Those pages are:
The “Heads Up” page focuses on online training resources for concussions, especially with regard to sports, and also has a variety of other resources, such as “Brain Injury Basics.”
