According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1.7 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. Of those injured, 52,000 die and 275,000 are hospitalized. Traumatic brain injuries represent approximately 1/3rd of all injury-related deaths in the United States.
It is interesting to know that slip and falls or trip and falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury, with motor vehicle-traffic accidents being the leading cause of traumatic brain injury death.
Brain injuries can range in severity from very mild (almost unnoticeable by the person experiencing a lapse in mental functioning) to very severe (the person experiences an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia following the injury). These injuries can result in short term or long term (permanent) loss of brain and motor-skill function.
