Suffering from a TBI can be a life-changing event that you didn’t sign up for. This is generally caused by outside forces, like blows or severe jolts to the head.
It doesn’t matter the cause of such an injury. All that matters is that traumatic brain injuries can have a powerful impact on your daily life.
