What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

According to MedlinePlus, a resource from the United States government, “traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a sudden injury that causes damage to the brain.” TBIs can be closed (when the head suddenly and violently hits an object) or penetrating (when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue). They can also range in seriousness – from mild to moderate to severe. A concussion, for example, is a type of mild TBI, but a more severe TBI might result in paralysis or a coma. If you’ve suffered a closed or penetrating head injury, contact our Mississippi traumatic brain injury attorneys today.
