What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Wagner Reese

a worried woman in the darkA traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs after a bump or jolt to the head, and may have lifelong consequences for victims.

Below, we discuss the common causes and symptoms of a TBI.

What Causes TBIs?

TBIs can happen in any situation where the head experiences blunt force trauma. The most common examples of this include:

  • Auto accidents

  • Slip and fall accidents

  • Sports accidents

  • Assaults

In these accidents, the brain may experience sudden acceleration or deceleration while the brain remains in place. When the brain ultimately catches up to this movement, it bounces against the inside of the skull—resulting in an injury.

What Are the Symptoms of a TBI?

Many of the symptoms of a TBI are subtle or not noticeable until much later. Therefore, it’s important for you to seek medical treatment after any head injury or if you experience any of the following:

  • Persistent headaches

  • Repeated nausea or vomiting

  • Blurred vision

  • Difficulty sleeping
