The primary cause of death in the US for individuals aged 44 years old and below is trauma. Head trauma is very serious, often leading to brain, scalp or skull injuries. While head injuries may be mild at times, they may also be serious and possibly fatal.
Studies show that every year, roughly two million head injuries are reported across the United States. Sadly, about 51,000 of these injuries result in fatalities. Among surviving brain injury victims, however, roughly 20 to 30 percent of them sustain irreversible and permanent disabilities.
Head injuries can greatly affect your fine motor skills, sense of balance, language, memory, coordination, information processing, perceptual skills, and ability to communicate. If you suffer from a severe head injury in North Carolina, then you may also suffer from mood or personality changes, seizures, paralysis, coma, or possibly death. Common examples of these types of injuries are traumatic brain injury (TBI), contusions, concussions, epidural hematoma, subdural hematoma, skull fracture, and anoxic brain injury.
If you suffer a spinal cord injury at the neck level, then it is possible that your breathing be impaired or that you suffer paralysis at the arms, legs and trunk. If you suffer a spinal cord injury located at the lower level of your spine, then you may experience loss of movement or weakness in the legs and the lower parts of your body. Unfortunately, severed spinal cords may not be repaired.
