What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury is damage to the brain caused by trauma rather than by disease. TBI is typically caused by a sudden, violent jolt or blow to the head or body. A closed brain injury occurs with a non-penetrating injury that does not break the skull, such as a forceful impact to the head in a fall. An open brain injury occurs when an object, such as a bullet or a skull fragment, pierces the brain. Injury victims can suffer both primary and secondary brain injury, defined as follows:

Primary Brain Injury:

Sudden, profound injury to the brain that occurs at the time of impact, for example, with a motor vehicle accident, a fall, or a gunshot wound.

Secondary Brain Injury:

Chemical, cellular, and tissue changes that occur in the brain in the hours or days following primary brain injury and further contribute to brain tissue destruction.

What Are the Main Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury?

Brain injury has many different causes. Some of the most common include:

Motor Vehicle Accidents:

These include car crashes, truck accidents, motorcycle collisions, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents.


The most common cause of TBI overall, particularly among young children and older adults, is falls, including falls from heights, ladders, beds, downstairs, and slip or trip and fall accidents. 

Violent Acts:

Assaults due to inadequate security, domestic violence, gunshot wounds, and other acts of violence are common causes of traumatic brain injury.

Falling Objects:

Blunt impact from falling objects striking the head; for example, when store merchandise is stacked improperly on overhead shelves, it can cause severe injury to the brain.

What Are the Symptoms of Brain Injury?

Mild traumatic brain injury symptoms usually resolve over time with proper medical care. Severe brain injury, on the other hand, may result in permanent disability and cause effects that last a lifetime. Victims of severe TBI may experience long-term difficulties in the following areas:


Symptoms may include coma, confusion, amnesia, memory problems, shorter attention span, inability to understand abstract concepts, decreased awareness of others and self, inability to accept more than one or two commands at a time, and difficulty with judgment and problem-solving.

Sensory or Perceptual:

Brain injury can cause problems with vision (limited range, lack of acuity, or double vision); changes in taste, smell, touch, and hearing; loss of sensation of body parts, and neglect of the left or right side of the body.

Motor Function:

More severe TBI can cause weakness or paralysis, poor coordination, balance problems, decreased endurance, spasticity (tightening and shortening of muscles), tremors, difficulty swallowing, delays in starting, and inability to plan motor movement.

Language and Communication:

TBI victims may have trouble speaking, understanding speech, choosing the right words, reading, forming coherent sentences, writing, working with numbers, and identifying objects and their functions. 


Physical disturbances may include headaches, fatigue, dizziness, changes in eating habits or sleep patterns, and loss of bladder or bowel control.

Emotional and Mental:

Severe TBI victims often experience personality changes, which may involve anxiety, depression, irritability, apathy, decreased motivation, aggression, temper flare-ups, frustration, and inappropriate sexual behavior.


TBI can impair ability in activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, eating, driving a car, operating machinery, shopping, or paying bills.
