This statistic highlights the importance of understanding the seriousness of brain injuries and taking steps to prevent and address them.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur when a sudden jolt, blow, or penetrating object damages the brain. The severity of a TBI can vary greatly, ranging from mild concussions to severe, life-altering injuries.
