What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

What Are the Different Types of Traumas on the Brain?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the brain’s normal function. Every year, 1.7 million people in the United States suffer a TBI.1

There are three main types of TBIs:

These are the most common type of TBI. Closed head injuries occur when the head sustains an impact, but the skull does not break. This can cause the brain to move around inside the skull, leading to bruising, swelling, and bleeding.

This type of TBI is caused by an object going through the skull and into the brain. Such injuries can be caused by a gunshot wound or a sharp object that pierces the skull.

These injuries occur when an object breaks the skin and enters the skull. Open head injuries are caused by a fall, a car accident, or a violent attack.
