What is a Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury is a type of closed head injury caused by an impact to the head strong enough to cause temporary or permanent brain dysfunction. Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of vehicle accidents are the leading cause of TBI. Firearms, falls, sports, and physical violence are the next most common causes.
Symptoms can range from a headache, temporary disorientation, permanent physical and cognitive impairment, coma and death. In many cases, the lasting effects are not known until many months after the accident. In some cases the impairments may not even be noticeable by the person who suffered head trauma, but family members report changes in mood, memory, personality, and behavior.
