Brain Injury

It’s not something most people consider when they think about an injury or an accident, but a brain injury is more common that you would imagine. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention or the CDC, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in the United States, contributing to about 30% of all injury deaths.1  Every day, 138 people in the United States die from injuries that include TBI. A brain injury can be a small as a concussion to something as huge as loss of function of your extremities or even the ability to communicate or remember. It not only affects the one injured but their friends and family as well.
