What are Some Examples of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by a variety of different types of accidents, which means that there can be multiple different types of catastrophic brain injury:

Concussions

Concussions are some of the most common forms of TBI, however, they can still have serious side effects and even lead to lasting impairment. A concussion can be caused by a direct impact to the head, a whiplash injury, or even violent shaking.

Contusions

This type of TBI is a bruise or bleeding on the brain. This type of injury is usually caused by direct impact to the head.

Penetration

These types of injuries occur when an object is forced through the skin and skull into the victim's brain. This type of injury can be common in assault cases, or even severe car accidents.

Diffuse Axonal

This type of brain injury occurs when the head moves so suddenly that the brain is unable to keep up with the rotation and therefore results in torn nerve tissue.

Symptoms of TBI

Serious TBI can have many physical and psychological effects, including:

  • Persistent headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Convulsions
  • Lack of motor coordination
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fatigue
  • Slurred speech
  • Aphasia
  • Dysarthria
  • Weakness / numbness in limbs
  • Confusion
  • Deficits in social judgment
  • Problems with sustained attention and processing speed

While some of these symptoms can appear with mild to moderate TBI, severe TBI includes long-term manifestation.
