Brain Injuries

Brain injuries, also called traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), affect millions of people yearly. Every day, in fact, 138 people in the United States die from injuries that include TBI.

Many others who survive such injuries often suffer significant consequences to their physical and mental health — sometimes for the rest of their lives. Some of the most common incidents that can cause a brain injury include:
