What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?


A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is damage to the brain that occurs as a result of an accident or trauma to the head, as opposed to an illness or congenital condition. The injuries can range from mild (concussions), to severe and debilitating. The effects of a TBI are dependent upon the severity and location of the injury.

How Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur

Over 50,000 people sustain brain injuries each year in Canada and the figure is on the rise, according to the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. A TBI can occur when the head is jolted, struck by an object, or impaled. Automobile accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the nation, comprising 50 percent of all TBIs, according to the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.

Our firm has been helping injury victims and their families obtain restitution for their injuries for over half a century.

Some of the ways in which our clients have sustained trauma to the brain are listed below

  • Car, truck, and bus accidents.
  • Motorcycle and bicycle accidents.
  • Construction site accidents.
  • Being struck by a falling object.
  • Work-related accidents.
  • Slip and fall accidents.

Symptoms and Effects of a TBI

A brain injury can affect a person’s cognitive abilities, personality, physical capacity, and emotions. The symptoms of a brain injury can vary widely from one victim to the next; much depends on what part of the brain sustained the damage.
