Brain injury can occur due to a traumatic incident such as sudden impact, violent shaking, spontaneous bleedings or lack of oxygen. A traumatic brain injury often has devastating effects on the individual as well as family and friends. A traumatic brain injury may forever change who an individual is, their personality and characteristics, as well as their physical functioning including speech, fine and gross motor movement. A traumatic brain injury can result in seizures, anxiety, memory loss, impulse control problems and death. Individuals who suffer a traumatic brain injury often require lifelong support.
