Traumatic Brain Injury (or TBI for short) signs can differ according to the severity of the injury. These are usually divided between mild and severe cases. TBI is usually the result of a violent blow or a fall that affects the head. If an object, such as a bullet, penetrates the brain’s tissues, this may also lead to a traumatic brain injury. The extent of symptoms resulting from a TBI depends on the severity and how much the brain cells are affected.
If mild, TBI may be temporary. However, serious brain injury, where physical damage to the brain is worse, may mean torn tissues, brain bleeds, and/or bruising. Unfortunately, an injury of this kind can mean ongoing complications or death, but not always!
