Brain injuries can be extremely serious, causing great pain and extreme, life-long repercussions for victims. Catastrophic brain injuries often require hospitalization, surgery, and ongoing medical care, which is never easy to deal with. Besides the physical pain that brain injuries bring, there are many other issues, such as financial burdens from medical bills, loss of wages, as well as emotional distress, which brings many challenges to victims in terms of whether or not they can still maintain the same quality of life they had before the accident. Additionally, families and loved ones may need to provide ongoing care for the victims in extreme cases, as some brain injuries can be extremely debilitating and limit victims from being able to live their daily lives.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury, otherwise known as a TBI, occurs due to a blow or jolt to the head that results in a disruption of normal brain function. TBIs can range in severity – for example, it can result in a concussion or even lead to a coma. TBIs are generally categorized in two ways:

  • A penetrating injury, otherwise known as an open TBI, which occurs when an object penetrates or comes into contact with the brain tissue.
  • A non-penetrating injury, otherwise known as a closed TBI, which occurs when an external force or jolt causes the brain to move within the skull.

Although a concussion happens to be one of the most common forms of traumatic brain injuries, keep in mind that there are many other types as well, such as:

  • Contusions
  • Skull fractures
  • Hematomas
  • Lesions
  • Hemorrhage
  • Shaken baby syndrome
  • Diffuse axonal injury
