Brain Injury Awareness

Brain injuries are one of the most traumatic and life altering injuries that may arise. In March, awareness is brought forward for brain injuries. This type of injury is not limited to a specific age group and can happen at any sudden moment. Brain injuries could be a result of a car accident, bike riding, playing hockey, and much more.

According to public health of Canada, there are approximately 20,000 people who suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and require hospitalization each year. Although a TBI could be severe, a concussion is also a very serious brain injury as the health of a person’s brain is jeopardized. A brain injury’s severity could result in death or disability to say the least. Currently, there are approximately 1.5 million Canadians continuing to live with the after effects of a brain injury they sustained.

If you have been involved in a car accident, whether the accident was minor or major, you should keep a close eye on symptoms you may have to follow. Brain injuries include, but are not limited to, having difficulty with your memory, difficulty with your vision, headaches, difficulty communicating with others, slurred speech, and confusion to name a few.
