Brain Injury vs. Traumatic Brain Injury
When most people think of a brain injury, they immediately think of a traumatic brain injury. However, there are several types of brain injuries, caused by many different things. Brain injuries can be categorized into two types: Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Non-Traumatic injuries. Non-traumatic brain injuries can include aneurysms, stroke, tumors, infections or toxic exposure. They are typically caused by the deterioration of the brain due to external factors.
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI for short is a brain injury that occurs when a person has an external force applied to the head or causes a disruption of normal brain functioning. Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by an accident or violent act such as a fall, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, gunshot wound, sports injury, blunt force trauma, oxygen deprivation, and more. TBI’s can cause a range of physical and mental symptoms including brain damage, mild concussions, difficulty with movement and coordination, memory loss, vision problems, changes in personality and behavior, fatigue and more.
Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics
In the United States, at least 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most of these injuries occur due to motor vehicle accidents, sports activities, falls, and assaults. Additionally, males are more likely than females to suffer a TBI, with the highest rates occurring in children aged 0-14 and elderly adults over 75 years old.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can brain injury affect the spine?
Yes. Traumatic brain injuries can affect the spine in a variety of ways, including disruption of the normal nerve pathways that control spinal movement and strength, as well as causing muscle weakness or spasticity which may lead to further injury. In addition, traumatic brain injuries can cause fluid shifts within the body, leading to increased pressure on certain areas of the spine and nerve compression.
How much can I receive in compensation for a brain injury?
The amount of compensation you can receive for a brain injury will depend on the severity and circumstances of your case. Generally, compensation is awarded based on medical costs, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and other factors. An experienced brain injury attorney can help you understand what kind of compensation you may be eligible for.
What is a TBI advocate?
A TBI advocate is a person who has experience with traumatic brain injuries and can provide support, guidance, and resources to individuals affected by them. An advocate can help individuals struggling with the effects of a brain injury learn about their rights and resources, connect them to support groups and services, and provide information on treatments and potential legal action like a personal injury lawsuit.
Does a brain injury qualify you for disability?
It depends. A person may qualify for disability benefits if their brain injury has caused them to become “permanently and totally disabled” according to the Social Security Administration’s definition. Generally, this means that the person cannot work or engage in any “substantial gainful activity” due to their brain injury, and it is expected that they will not be able to do so for at least 12 months. Individuals should speak with a qualified attorney, like those at the Traffic Accident Law Center, who specializes in disability law to determine if they are eligible.
