The effects of a TBI
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, occur when the brain is forcefully damaged in some way. A person who hits her head on the dashboard in a car accident, a man whose skull is broken by a falling piece of pipe – these are common examples of TBI cases. The effects of a traumatic brain injury, however, can be as varied as the people who suffer with them. A TBI can cause:
- Permanent loss of motor skills, resulting in the inability to walk, talk or feed oneself
- Permanent cognitive damage, resulting in the inability to communicate of brain damage so severe it is like the victim is a child again
- Impaired self-awareness, where the victim does not recognize there is a problem at all – or if he/she does know there is a problem, cannot do anything to “fix” it
- Permanent loss of vision, hearing, taste or smell
- Total changes in personality, as if the victim is an entirely new person
- Permanent vegetative states
