A traumatic brain injury is the term used to describe what happens to the brain when it is damaged by sudden, physical force. The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and getting hit on the head by an object or person. TBIs can range from mild to severe. While some TBIs can be easy to both detect and prove that they were caused in by an accident, other TBIs can be harder to identify, with symptoms taking days, even weeks after the accident to show up.
