or a violent outside force causes brain dysfunction. TBIs can result from
auto accidents, assaults, sports injuries, and serious slip and fall accidents. These
injuries can take a long time to heal and can potentially have life-altering
consequences not only for victims, but for families as well.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury
Concussion: The most common type of TBI which may or may not result in a loss of
Coup-contrecoup: Occurs when an outside force is so strong that it causes the brain to
strike both sides of the inside of the skull, causing bruising to both
sides of the brain.
Contusion: An area of bruising (bleeding) on the brain which may require surgical removal.
Diffuse axonal: Large nerve fibers are sheared in many areas throughout the brain, causing
loss of connections among neurons.
Penetrative: Occurs when a foreign object breaks through the skull and pierces the
brain (such as a gunshot wound).
TBI can have a profound impact on a person’s life, potentially affecting
their ability to live an independent life, complete daily tasks, and enjoy
the same level of employment they did before their accident.
Whether your doctor has classified your brain injury as mild, moderate,
or severe, it is important to remember that
all brain injuries should be considered serious. If not properly cared for,
brain injuries may not have a chance to fully heal and may lead to lasting
- Memory problems
