According to the Mayo Clinic, a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be categorized from Mild to Severe. A severe TBI results from either a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. This can also include an object which penetrates the brain tissue, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull which resulted from blunt force trauma to the head.
On the other hand, most personal injury cases include some sort of Mild traumatic brain injury, which may affect your brain cells temporarily. TBI’s can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain which cannot be seen until properly diagnosed. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death if not treated properly.

The brain is the most important organ of the body and must be treated immediately after an accident. Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury vary based on the severity of the injury. In more severe accidents, it is determined quickly if one has been a victim of a Traumatic Brain Injury. However, in some cases, symptoms may not appear until weeks or months after the accident.
Since the brain controls some of our vital functions such as thoughts, memories and emotions, a Traumatic Brain Injury may hinder one’s ability to enjoy a normal life. Some symptoms include headaches, fatigue, nausea, sensitivity to light, memory or concentration issues, depression, inability to speak or slurred speech. Activities or tasks which were once normal can no longer be completed and require significant medical treatments and rehabilitation to make an injured person’s life as full and complete as possible.
