Each year in the United States, about 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury, those that are defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the way the brain functions. Auto accidents and falls account for nearly half of all brain injuries.
Traumatic brain injuries can affect a person’s thinking, language, learning, emotions, behavior and sensation. Such injuries may also cause epilepsy and are known to increase the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other brain-related disorders.
The costs associated with treating brain injuries is staggering. Victims and their families are also faced with expenses for rehabilitation, physical therapy, vocational training and, sadly, in many cases, 24/7 care.
