Traumatic Brain Injuries Defined

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force causes brain dysfunction. TBIs usually result from a violent blow or a jolt to the head or body. TBI can also occur when an object penetrates the skull; for example, when a bullet or blunt object pierces the skull.

While a mild traumatic brain injury can cause a temporary loss of consciousness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and sleep disturbances, a severe brain injury can cause:

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Repeated nausea or vomiting

  • Inability to waken from sleep

  • Profound confusion

  • Slurred speech

  • Coma

  • Agitation or combativeness

  • Numbness in extremities

  • Loss of coordination

  • Nerve damage

  • Vegetative state

  • Brain death


Aside from sport injuries and acts of violence, other common causes of traumatic brain injuries include: falls, car accidents, and explosive blasts. In addition to the physical signs and symptoms, brain injuries can also cause a series of intellectual problems that can affect memory, learning, judgment, reasoning, and much more.

“Got into a bicycle vs car mishap resulting in a few nights in the ICU thus hospital bills were mounting in the low 6 figures. Shopped around for legal guidance which led me to attorney and fellow cyclist Richard Duquette who came highly recommended in the San Diego cycling community. The cohesive team worked hard on my behalf and Duquette's generational experience helped navigate and apply pressure to the appropriate parties when necessary. Was able to get the maximum recovery so I could recover without the added stress of paying hospital bills over the next decade. Would highly recommend.”
