Traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury refers to a brain injury caused by a blow to the head by an external force.  Motor vehicle accidents are the single most common cause of traumatic brain injuries.  Sports-related accidents and accidents at work are also common causes of traumatic brain injury.  The severity of these injuries varies widely, ranging from mild concussions with full recovery to severe brain injuries which are often fatal or result in longstanding impairments in intellectual functioning, physical mobility, speech and language, and behavior.
