The definition of acquired brain injury (ABI) describes a condition which is acquired after birth (from 5 years old) and can apply to any age. It is
non-progressive and caused by various traumas to the brain.
Typically, this could be due to damage to brain tissue after:
- road traffic accidents
- industrial accidents
- sporting accidents
- viral infections to the brain
- neuro surgery
- damage to blood vessels in the brain.
People’s experience of brain injury can differ greatly from one person to the next. Brain injury can affect every area of a person’s life which can be either for the long or the short term.
