Brain Injuries Are Common But Hidden
According to statistics published by the Brain Trauma Foundation, 1.5 million people are admitted to emergency rooms because of brain injuries every year in the United States.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are the leading cause of death and disability for Americans ages 1 to 44, causing approximately 52,000 deaths annually.
Brain injuries occur in a variety of accidents and incidents, including:
- Car wrecks
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Truck wrecks
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Dangerous and defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Sports and recreational accidents
- Construction accidents
What every TBI has in common is that it deeply impacts the life of the individual affected — as well as family members and loved ones.
While a traumatic brain injury can be elusive to diagnose and identify, the damage they cause can subtly but powerfully impact many aspects of a victim’s life, depending on the severity and scope of the particular injury.
