TBI and Premature Death – What Is The Link?
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury is often seen in individuals that have suffered catastrophic accidents such as auto accidents, sports injuries and even falls from heights such as in the case of construction workers that work at high heights. Traumatic brain injury refers to a severe brain injury brought on by blunt force trauma which causes damage to structures of the brain. Traumatic brain injury may interfere with vital areas such as the prefrontal cortex which is used in executive functioning in processes such as thinking of the consequences of one’s actions before performing them, and higher order thinking as well as delayed gratification. Individuals with traumatic brain injury are now being said to be more likely to become victims of premature death according to a Swedish study. If you were in an accident that you believe was not your fault and was caused by the other driver’s negligence or distractedness, you may be able to recover substantial compensation, and we’re here to help with that.

TBI And Mood Issues
Individuals who suffer from traumatic brain injury are more likely to suffer from mood swings, depression and anxiety due to the non-relenting nature of their condition and the feeling of hopelessness. Given the long period of convalescence of recovery, TBI victims may feel restless and useless in the grand scheme of things in society, making it more likely that they will act out just so they can feel alive again. This makes it more likely for them to engage in risky activities that may harm them and their loved ones.
TBI and Hormone Production
Traumatic brain injury may interfere with the brain’s ability to produce vital neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which is known as the happiness hormone. In addition, a TBI individual’s perception may become skewed, making it more likely for them to take drastic actions such as suicide in a fleeting moment of hopelessness.
