Brain Injury Statistics in America

Brain injury statistics in America are staggering.  According to the Brain Injury Association of America, over 4,000 individuals suffer a traumatic brain injury or TBI every day in the United States.  That amounts to over 1.5 million people a year that will suffer a traumatic brain injury in this country alone.   Around one million people are treated and released every year from hospital emergency rooms after they have suffered a TBI.  Brain injuries cause 235,000 Americans to be hospitalized every year.  Brain injuries cause 50,000 deaths annually and leave over 80,000 people with long-term disabilities.  

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are over 5.3 million Americans living with disabilities sustained through brain injuries.   A traumatic brain injury occurs every 21 seconds.  Brain injuries are the leading cause of death and disability in young adults and children.  Brain injuries are a leading cause of physical disabilities, as well as cognitive, behavioral, mental, and emotional disorders and disabilities.  The costs of treating brain injuries and the resulting disabilities are in excess of $35 billion each year.  Severe brain injury patients will need to spend between five and ten years in intensive rehabilitation therapies.

The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • 28% due to falls
  • 20% due to motor vehicle accidents
  • 19% due to head striking against an object or being hit
  • 11% due to assault
