Each year in the United States an estimated 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) – a blow or jolt to the head, which can disrupt the function of the brain. The severity of a TBI can range from a mild concussion to the extremes of coma or even death. At least 5.3 million Americans currently live with disabilities resulting from TBI. The leading causes of these types of injuries are:
- Industrial accidents
- Vehicle accidents and crashes
- Firearm accidents
- Slips and/or falls
- Nursing home abuse
