Traumatic brain injuries or TBIs are some of the most devastating of all personal injuries. Many people understand that TBIs can negatively impact a person’s life, but how many people know the true level of that impact? Another little-known TBI fact is that there are many different types of traumatic brain injuries and these can occur even in relatively minor accidents. The symptoms of some TBIs may not appear for some time after an injury, making these injuries difficult to spot and treat effectively.
TBIs can range in impact from mild to devastating. Here are a few facts about traumatic brain injuries:
There are four major types of traumatic brain injury, and each can cause serious and long-lasting effects.
These types of injuries are considered closed-skull injuries. One other type, a penetrating injury, occurs when something penetrates the skull and impacts the brain. All of these injuries are very serious and should be treated immediately. Some of them can be treated, but some result in long-term damage that can affect a victim for life.
