A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), as the name states, is injury to the brain, temporal or cranial areas of the body from trauma, such as the head coming in contact with a violent blow from an assault, a projectile, a blast from explosion, or in the case of motorcycles, impact to a vehicle or the ground. The trauma can affect the brain temporarily or permanently due to bruising, torn tissues, internal bleeding and other complications.
