What Are the Most Common Causes of TBI?
Traumatic brain injuries occur when the brain tissue is injured due to an external force. This external force may be an actual object colliding with the head and possibly even penetrating the skull or it may be something that causes the head to whip violently back and forth. Whether the brain comes into contact with the wall of the skull or is penetrated by an object that forced its way through the skull, the delicate tissue of the brain is injured.
While open head injuries are immediately evident, closed head injuries often go undiagnosed until irreparable damage has already been done, especially when victims do not seek medical attention right away after an accident. Many traumatic brain injuries do not produce immediate symptoms, but can still cause permanent damage or even be life-threatening if not treated in a timely manner. This is why accident victims should always visit a physician as soon as possible after an accident, no matter how healthy and unaffected by the event they feel.
