Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) also referred to as head injury, brain trauma a or traumatic head injury is a devastating personal injury resulting from physical trauma to the head, neck or brain by an impact, shaking, bump or penetration that disrupts normal brain function. They are often associated with concussions. Common accidents that cause TBI are trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, motor vehicle accidents or falls. Non-violent incidents can cause brain trauma as well, such as drug overdose or chemical poisoning. The Brain Injury Association of America (www.biausa.org) estimates that 1.7 million children and adults in the U.S. sustain a TBI each year, and currently more than 3.1 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability because of TBI. The University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine (http://www.med.upenn.edu/cbir/Silentepidemic.html) approximates that the U.S. cost of treating, rehabilitating and caring for the victims of traumatic brain injury is $30 billion each year.
