Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

It is estimated that more than 83,000 Americans are hospitalized each year for traumatic brain injury, approximately 200,000 will die each year from such an injury, and roughly 5.3 million Americans are living today with a traumatic brain injury disability. The leading causes of traumatic brain injury are car crashes, violence—such as physical assault and battery, and falls.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury can be caused by excessive force to the head, such as hitting the dashboard of a car, or by an object passing through the skull and piercing the brain, such as a bullet from a gun. The major causes of traumatic brain injury are motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries, violent crimes, and child abuse.

Types of TBI Injuries Suffered

Injuries suffered as the result of a traumatic brain injury can include communication difficulties (due to speech and language areas being damaged), walking, balance, and coordination difficulties, changes in the ability to smell or hear, and changes in memory and cognitive abilities. Traumatic brain injury can also cause epilepsy and increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain disorders.

Damages Available From Traumatic Brain Injury Accidents

Types of damages available for traumatic brain injury victims include compensation for medical treatment, present and future, loss of income such as wages, bonuses, overtime pay and promotional pay, and loss of estimated future income that has been lost as the result of the accident. The family of a traumatic brain injury wrongful death victim may also be entitled to income wages, both past and future, and other forms of punitive damages.
