Traumatic Brain Injury
When somebody suffers an injury, there is typically a cast, crutches, or some other visible evidence of the harm done and that the person is still recovering. When a person sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI) though, there may be no signs whatsoever of the very serious damage that was done.
In cases of so-called “mild” brain injuries, it may be possible for victims to achieve near or full recovery with extensive rehabilitation. Several other TBI victims, however, can undergo several months or years of treatment without ever understanding the full extent of their injuries.
