A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change a person's life forever. Even a mild brain injury can result in personality changes, communication issues, memory problems and a lifetime of medical care.
A TBI is caused by an unexpected force to the head, including the head striking an object or an object piercing the skull and coming into contact with the brain. It can also be caused by the sudden slowing of the head, which may cause the brain to strike the skull, without the skull ever hitting an object. Brain injuries range from severe to mild; however, even a mild brain injury can have life-changing consequences for the victim.
If you or a loved one has been in a car accident or other type of accident in Sacramento or any other surrounding city in Sacramento County, even if you did not hit your head, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
