What is a Brain Injury?
A brain injury involves any damage – mild, moderate or traumatic - to the scalp, skull or brain. Mild or moderate brain injuries include bumps, bruises, or cuts to the head. More serious injuries, also known as Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) are usually brought on by concussions, deep cuts, open wounds, skull fractures and internal bleeding. If left untreated, these injuries can result in permanent brain damage and/or death.
Causes of Brain Injury
Effects of Brain Injury
The effects of a brain injury may not be immediate. In fact, victims may not exhibit obvious symptoms even though they are suffering from memory loss or having difficulty with concentration, speech and temperament. As such, early medical treatment is highly recommended. Upon medical examination, the extent of the injury can be identified and an appropriate course of treatment can be undertaken to help maximize recovery.
