Traumatic Brain Injury Every 21 Seconds

PRWEB reported March 15, 2011 in “The Book Every 21 Seconds To Become Movie” that every 21 seconds in America, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs and someone’s life is changed. The book, Every 21 Seconds, authored by a man who resides outside of Chicago, IL, has been considered by experts in the field of TBI to be the most realistic book written on the subject. The man is currently employed by United Parcel Service. The author was struck down at age 29 and given little to no hope of rediscovering. The story reconstructs the services needed after TBI, the family consequences and society’s lack of appreciation. The screenplay for the film is being written by a lead Inner Light Screenplay Writer. The film project is being presented to select investors and corporations.

TBI is a type of personal injury often caused by a severe blow to the head, damaging the internal lining, tissues, or blood vessels, leading to brain injury that causes physical and mental problems. Engage a Chicago injury lawyer for experienced representation when it comes to handling brain injury cases. Medical attention involves stabilizing the individual with TBI and preventing further injury by insuring oxygen to the brain and the rest of the body, maintaining blood flow, and controlling blood pressure. Medical diagnosis and treatment may require skull and neck X-rays to check for bone fractures or spinal instability, individually tailored physical therapy, speech/language therapy, psychology/psychiatry, and social support.

Often caused by sports, vehicle accidents, assaults, or falls, TBI can range from relatively mild to extremely severe; in the worst cases, brain injury may result in death or permanent disability. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a TBI annually in the United States. Of them: 52,000 die, 275,000 are hospitalized. Direct medical costs and indirect costs of TBI, such as lost productivity, totaled an estimated $60 billion in the US in 2000. TBI patients suffer high medical bills from long-term rehabilitation, and lost income from diminished ability to work. TBI symptoms include headache, confusion, lightheadedness, blurred vision, ringing ears, fatigue, vomiting, seizures, and slurred speech.

Little can be done to reverse the brain damage caused by trauma. TBI may lead to suicide, unemployment, substance abuse, and crime.
