Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) affect some 1.8 million people each year, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These injuries occur when a jolt or blow to the head causes injury to the brain resulting in a disruption in normal brain function. Some of the issues that people who sustain TBIs can experience for weeks, months, or even years after an accident include headaches, sensitivity to light and sound, problems with speech and communication, trouble concentrating, and difficulty with problem solving.

Some common examples of accidents that fall into this category are discussed below.
