What is traumatic brain injury (TBI)?
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, half of all traumatic brain injury victims received their injuries in automobile accidents.
Traumatic brain injury occurs when a person suffers a sudden, violent blow to the head which causes some degree of brain injury or damage. In motor vehicle accidents — including cars, trucks and other commercial vehicles — that violent blow can occur when a person's head hits a solid object on the inside or outside of the vehicle. An automobile defect can be the cause of a traumatic brain injury. Car, van and truck defects can also aggravate injuries that already occurred.
Traumatic brain injury symptoms
Traumatic brain injury can cause a broad range of medical problems including loss of memory, mood swings, aggressiveness and headaches. Symptoms that may be immediately diagnosed after an accident include: loss of consciousness, bleeding, swelling and/or bruising of the brain (which may not be visible), coma and seizures, among other things. Traumatic brain injury can also be more subtle, with symptoms not surfacing for many months or years after the accident.
Rollover accidents and TBI
Rollover accidents are a common cause of traumatic brain injury and related-deaths. Forty percent of all 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.
