Understanding Brain Injuries
Also known as TBI's, traumatic brain injuries are potentially devastating
injuries that occur as a result of a serious impact to the head, such as in
boating accidents and any other activity or accident where blunt force trauma to the head
or restricted oxygen flow to the brain occurs. These types of injuries
can even occur without specific impact, such as in cases of fast acceleration
or deceleration which cause the brain to press too hard against the head,
causing bruising or bleeding that may not be evident at once. Medical
attention should be sought immediately after any accident.

Effects of Brain Damage
Identifying the degree of traumatic brain injuries can be very challenging,
even for brain injury specialists. People who have suffered a serious
TBI may exhibit memory loss, a dampened ability for problem solving, difficulty
controlling temper and many other symptoms, in mild cases. More severe
cases will include total loss of cognitive function, and recovery is uncertain.
Traumatic brain injuries carry many consequences, and those who suffer
from this type of injury will incur substantial medical bills for diagnosis,
surgery and other treatments, medication, therapy and rehabilitation.
Further, many TBI victims may no longer be able to make a living or function
in life as they had previously, if at all, and families can suffer severe
financial hardship when a loved one has been permanently injured.
