Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in the United States.
The CDC defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, jolt, or penetrating head injury.
Everyone is at risk for a TBI, especially children and older adults. Every year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI as a consequence of these injuries:
- 230,000 people are hospitalized and survive
- 50,000 people die
- 80,000 – 90,000 people experience a long-term disability
Brain injuries can happen in hundreds of different scenarios, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, work-site accidents, drowning, or many other types of trauma. These injuries have both short-term and long-term effects on individuals, their families, and society. The financial cost is enormous.
