TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY • Closed Head Injury • Car Accident • Motorcycle Accident • Slip & Fall

Almost fifty (50) percent of traumatic brain injuries are caused by falls (28%) and motor vehicle-traffic crashes (20%). What is a traumatic brain injury? A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of such an injury may range from “mild,” i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function.

Every 23 seconds, one person in the US sustains a Traumatic Brain Injury. An estimated 3.17 Million Americans currently live with disabilities resulting from Traumatic Brain Injury. 1.4 Million Americans sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury each year. More than 50,000 people die every year as a result of Traumatic Brain Injury.
