About Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury that results from sudden trauma to the head that disrupts normal brain functions. Often, TBI victims do not exhibit physical symptoms but have noticeable changes in behavior. TBIs can result from a number of incidents, including:

Because TBIs are difficult to detect, it is important that you consult a physician after sustaining a blow to the head even if you feel otherwise healthy. In the months that follow an accident, you should look for the following TBI symptoms:

  • Recurring headaches and/or neck pain
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Slowed reflexes
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Loss of coordination

If you or a loved one exhibits any symptoms of TBI, you should immediately seek medical help.
