A traumatic brain injury, called TBI for short, may cause severe, long-lasting bodily and mental impairment to a victim and life changing consequences to their family. Debilitating symptoms and even the possibility of death can result from a TBI. TBI cases must be treated seriously.
A TBI is a head wound or intracranial injury caused by an external force. This sudden blow, bump or jolt to the head can disrupt normal brain functioning. Have you or a loved one in Riverside County had a traumatic brain injury?
