Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is caused by trauma to the head and often affects one or more areas of your brain. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may be caused by a blow to the head or if your head strikes an object and your brain is jostled inside your skull. An object that pierces your skull and injures your brain can also cause a TBI.
