Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one form of acquired brain injury (ABI). It occurs as the result of some external force being applied to the brain. People in the 14 to 24 age group are more likely than people of other ages to get a TBI. Men are more likely than women to get a TBI. Road traffic accidents are the most common cause of TBI. A second peak in incidence is after 75 years of age. The main cause for the elderly is falls.
