Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a type of acquired injury to the brain, a severe head injury that causes damage to the brain and results in the disruption of the brains normal function. It is not congenital, hereditary, dysfunctional or induced by birth trauma. TBI is the product of a sudden violent head trauma, a closed injury or an object piercing the skull and entering the brain. The piercing injury is often referred to as a penetrating injury. These injuries are not uncommon to Texans or citizens in cities like Houston, Galveston, the Port of Houston and San Antonio. It is not uncommon to these areas since these types of injuries result from work place accidents or automobile accidents.
