Each year, about 1.4 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) — a blow to the head that results in mild to severe brain dysfunction. About 50,000 people die from TBIs each year and 80,000 more are left to cope with lifelong disabilities.
The most common causes of brain injury are falls, car accidents, being struck by an object, striking one’s head against a hard surface, and assaults. The symptoms of brain injury may take weeks or months to fully develop and can include impaired thinking, inability to concentrate, emotional and behavioral changes, and loss of balance, speech, memory and coordination. Some victims remain in a coma for months or even years.
