What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury, or “TBI,” occurs when someone suffers blunt force trauma to the head that causes fluid buildup in the cranial cavity and/or swelling of the brain, which in turn cuts off circulation to the affected area of the brain and causes lasting or permanent damage.
One of the most common examples of a brain injury is the concussion. When a person is hit hard in the head, or falls and cracks their head against the pavement or a hard object, the impact can cause their brain to jolt against the inside of the skull, causing injury.
Symptoms of a Concussion or Brain Injury Include:
- Bruising and swelling of the affected area
- Loss of consciousness
- Vision loss
- Memory loss
- Speech loss
- Reduced mental capacity

The Long-Term Effects of a TBI
In cases of serious brain injuries (such as a TBI), the effects on the victim are not short-lived. Severe TBI cases can affect a victim’s physical and mental function for months, years, or even the rest of their life.
When the swelling of and loss of blood flow to an area of the brain is severe enough, permanent brain damage can occur. This means that the person will never recover function in that area of their brain. Any memories stored in that section will be lost forever. Likewise, any function that used to be managed by that area of the brain will either need to be relearned using a different part of the brain, or it will be lost for good.
TBI Victims Often Require Rehabilitation Such As:
- Cognitive Therapy – Recover memories, memory capacity, and mental capacity
- Physical Therapy – Recover the ability to walk and
- Speech/Language Therapy – Recover the ability to speak and put thoughts into words.
- Neurobehavioral Therapy – Recover attention control, mood control, and other behavioral skills.
- Occupational Therapy – Recover ability to perform daily activities.
- Vocational Rehabilitation – Recover skills and abilities that will allow them to rejoin the work force.
These are just a few examples of the extensive therapy and rehabilitation that a TBI victim may need to undergo. Even so, not all TBI victims make a full recovery. This is one reason why it is so important to speak with a brain injury lawyer immediately after you or your loved one has experienced a brain injury. The sooner you fight for a fair settlement or jury verdict, the less you will have to worry about the cost of medical care, treatment, and rehabilitation.
