What Psychological Changes Can You Expect After a Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are caused when the head receives a blow, bump, or jolt severe enough to cause disruption to normal brain function. About 1.7 million people suffer TBIs each year in the United States alone. Of these, about 52,000 results in fatalities. Although falls are the leading cause of TBIs, the second is car accidents. Road accidents account for about 17 percent of TBIs, and 31 percent of fatalities.
