A brain injury, also referred to as head injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI), occurs when the head is struck or hit by some external force. A brain injury most often results when there is a blow to the head in a car accident or fall. The blow need not be that hard; a minor concussion could have serious long term consequences if it damages vital brain neurons.

When the skull is seriously hit, the brain may twist within the skull. The rotation and disruption of the brain inside the skull will sever or shear the brain's long connecting nerve fibers. This damage can be microscopic and difficult to measure. In cases involving "mild brain injury", the effects may not be long term, but more severe brain injury can result in permanent disability, unconsciousness, and coma.
