Brain Injury (Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI)
Most noteworthy is brain injuries are caused by a blow or jolt to the head and most often occur during falls and motor vehicle accidents. Another term for this can also be called a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Traumatic brain injury can disrupt the normal function of the brain. The severity of TBI can vary from mild (a brief change in mental status or consciousness). Furthermore, to severe (an extended period of unconsciousness of 30 minutes or more). Resulting in, prolonged amnesia after the injury, or a penetrating skull injury. Any TBI can result in short and long-term disabilities (CDC unpublished). Read more about Traumatic Brain Injury in the NCIPC Injury Fact Book, 2001-2002.
