A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury that changes the way the brain functions. A TBI usually results from a violent blow to the head. Automobile collisions, motorcycle crashes, slip-and-fall accidents, and other mishaps that bring the brain into violent contact with the skull can cause a TBI. Other brain injuries occur when the brain is deprived of oxygen or is exposed to toxic chemicals.
Brain injuries can be deadly. Swelling or bleeding in the brain can be fatal if an accident victim does not receive immediate treatment. Victims who survive brain injuries may suffer from a permanent disturbance of brain functions, including impairment of the ability to think and reason, speech disorders, loss of mobility or balance, personality changes, and other disabling conditions.
