Traumatic brain injury can occur after a blow or jolt to the head or body. An object that goes through brain tissue also can cause traumatic brain injury.
Mild traumatic brain injury may affect a person's brain cells temporarily. More-serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death.
