Traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI, is most often an acute event similar to other injuries. That is where the similarity between traumatic brain injury and other injuries ends. One moment the person is normal and the next moment life has abruptly changed. Traumatic brain injury occurs when an external mechanical force causes brain dysfunction. Traumatic brain injury can result from a car accident due to a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. Since our brain defines who we are, the consequences of a brain injury can affect all aspects of our lives, including our personality.
