Injury Classification

A brain injury is classified into three categories, ranging from mild to severe.

Severity of brain injury does not equate function!

Challenges after injury can be affected by additional factors, such as:

  • Age at injury
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Service in the military
  • Participation in sports
  • Number of brain injuries a person experiences
  • Genetic risk factors
  • Pre-injury personality
  • A “fragile” brain
