What Is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is usually the result of a sudden, violent blow to the head. Half of all traumatic brain injuries are caused by collisions involving cars, motorcycles and bicycles. TBI may also occur when a projectile, such as a bullet, rock or fragment of a fractured skull actually penetrates the brain.
