What is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury is a complex blow or jolt caused to the head (brain or skull) by an external force or by the head hitting an object. It can display a wide spectrum of symptoms and lead to disabilities.

The main causes of a traumatic brain injury are truck accidents, sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, cycle or bike accidents, birth injuries, violence, falls and assaults.

  • Strictly obey the traffic rules while driving.
  • While skating or cycling be aware of drivers.

  • Follow the rules specified and the warning signals when you play at water theme parks, swimming pools and beaches.
