When a person suffers a head injury, from an incident such as a fall, hit, or other type of accident, it is crucial that medical attention is given to the brain. The head and brain are both crucial and fragile areas of the body, and although there may be no outside signs of harm, a head injury can result in brain injuries that can have serious and life-changing consequences. A brain injury that is particularly serious is known as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
