Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) contribute to about 30% of all injury deaths and every day 138 people die as the result of a TBI according to the CDC. In 2010, there were about 2.5 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, or deaths associated with TBIs.
The CDC states among the leading causes of TBIs are:
- Falls (especially among children under the age of 14 or among adults over the age of 65);
- Motor vehicle accidents; and
If you are fortunate enough to survive a TBI then you still may face disability for the remainder of your life. People who have suffered a TBI commonly experience difficulties with their cognitive thinking, memory, movements, sensation or even emotional function.
