A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is an injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.They can range from mild to severe and are typically caused by a bump, blow, jolt, or penetration of the head. There are about 1.5 million reported cases of TBI per year, and many are caused by wrongful injury or accidents. As they can often be serious, you should always seek medical attention for a TBI.

Brain Injury Accidents
Brain trauma is a serious incident that should be treated right away. As Miami accident attorneys, we understand how brain injuries can impact your life. The initial cause of the TBI can also lead to secondary injuries that can change the cerebral blood flow and pressure inside of the skull.
The Glasgow Coma Scale is the most common way to determine the severity of a TBI based on verbal, motor, and eye-opening reactions to stimuli. It is determined on a scale of 3 – 15, with anything above 13 being mild, 9 – 12 being moderate, and everything below 8 being severe.
Depending on your injury, damage from a traumatic brain injury can be localized – (restricted to one area) or diffused (spread over a wide area) throughout the brain. Mild TBI is often associated with a brief change in a mental state of consciousness. You may experience confusion, headaches, dizziness, behavioral changes, or trouble with memory and concentration. More severe cases can result in long periods of amnesia, unconsciousness, loss of coordination, confusion, and more.
