Traumatic Brain Damage Facts: Did You Know?

Each year in The United States:

• Approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) ranging from mild to severe

• 51,000 people die from TBI

• 230,000 people are hospitalized due to TBI and survive

• More than 1 million are treated in emergency departments for TBI

• An estimated $56 billion is spent on direct and indirect costs as a result of all TBI

• 80,000 to 90,000 Americans experience onset of long-term disability from TBI


Because a brain injury can cause physical, cognitive and emotional consequences that can affect a person for a lifetime, it is important that Brain Injury is understood and that competent, highly qualified legal help be obtained.
