A traumatic brain injury is defined as damage to the brain resulting from some external mechanical force. Brain injuries are generally classed as mild, moderate, severe or very severe and can have varying effects on the injured victim.
The effects of brain injuries will generally continue to improve for anywhere up to three years after an injury and, while many brain injury victims will have a full recovery, some will be left with permanent physical, cognitive and emotional deficits.
Even mild traumatic brain injuries can cause a disruption in one’s family, work and social life. Victims often become easily angered or frustrated and have a tendency to show less patience with others. Memory and concentration are often negatively impacted and victims may become withdrawn and isolated. As a result, it is not uncommon for individuals with a traumatic brain injury to have difficulties with work, resulting in periods of unemployment or complete unemployability.
