Traumatic brain injury (TBI) may result from a violent jolt to the head or body, a direct blow to the head, or the penetration of an object into the brain such as a bullet or fragmented piece of skull. A TBI may be mild and affect the brain temporarily; or, it may be severe resulting in torn or bruised brain tissue, swelling, and bleeding. A severe TBI can result in long term brain damage and in some cases, death.
