Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A traumatic brain injury can occur when an outside force fractures the skull and penetrates the brain (open head injury), or when a force causes the brain to move within the skull, resulting in trauma to the brain without visible evidence (closed head injury). Brain injuries frequently occur in cases involving car accidents or vehicle crashes.
What Are the Symptoms of Brain Injury?
Many symptoms of brain injury do not show up for several weeks or months after the initial accident or event, so it is important to recognize the symptoms as soon as they begin to interfere with day-to-day life activities. When accident victims experience brain injuries, the individual may experience:
- Disturbed sleep patterns
- Slowed or impaired thinking
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory lapses
- Faulty judgment
- Periods of depression
