About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most serious of all personal injuries, in that they are most likely to result in permanent disability or even death.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of such an injury may range from "mild," i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function.
