What is a Brain Injury?

A brain injury occurs when a blow or trauma to the head causes significant brain damage. The consequences of a brain injury can be devastating for the injured person and their family, and lead to all sorts of memory, concentration, language and communication problems. The impact of a brain injury can vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. Find out more on what qualifies as brain injury here.

A Guide to Brain Injury

This brief guide explains the different types of injuries that can occur, along with an explanation of the effects on different functional areas within the brain. It also displays the Glasgow Coma Scale – one technique used by medical professionals in order to classify the extent of injury caused based on an individual’s motor responses, verbal responses and ability to open their eyes in response to stimuli.
