Victims of brain injuries may wonder what they are dealing with and what they should do. Brain injuries can cause temporary or permanent functional problems for victims and can result in death. Brain injuries can occur in a variety of different ways. There are two primary types of brain injuries: traumatic brain injuries are usually the result of trauma to the brain and acquired brain injuries are usually the result of a lack of oxygen to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can be penetrating injuries or can include jolts or blows to the head that result in a traumatic brain injury.
