Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the result of an external mechanical force causing brain dysfunction. Traumatic brain injury occurs when the head or body experiences a violent blow or jolt. Penetrating objects can also cause traumatic brain injury.
The severity of injury/physical trauma on brain function ranges from “mild”, “moderate” and “severe.” This categorization is misleading since it does not specify the severity of consequences from the injury.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states the majority (35%) of traumatic brain injuries are from falls. The second common event causing TBI (17%) are vehicle-related accidents involvingcars, motorcycles or bicycles- including pedestrian related collisions.
