Signs & Symptoms of a TBI
Brain injuries cause 30 percent of all deaths due to trauma each year in the United States. Commonly caused by falls and car accidents, brain injuries affect at least 1.7 million people annually – including many in South Carolina.
They can occur as a result of either open or closed-head injuries.
Brain injuries do not always show immediate symptoms. Because of the high risks associated with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is essential to seek treatment right away after any accident where brain injury may have occurred.
