Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities.
The impact on a person and his or her family can be devastating. TBI occurs when sudden and violent trauma occurs to the head.
Symptoms of a TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain.
Surgical intervention is required in more than half of all TBI cases to repair hematomas (ruptured blood vessels) or contusions (bruised brain tissue), leaving patients and their families ill-equipped to cope with the medical, financial and legal issues stemming from the catastrophic injury.
Leading Causes of TBI
Brain damage can result from various different types of accidents or traumas. The leading causes of TBI are:
- Auto Accidents
- Slip and Falls
- Sports-related injuries
- Work-related injuries
- Defective products
- School Bus Accidents
