Brain Injury Statistics

brain injury statistics

Each year in the United States, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury, and about 5.3 million people suffer from the effects of brain damage. While some of these brain injuries are mild, about 50,000 people will die each year in the United States alone as a result of a brain injury. The age groups at most-risk for a traumatic brain injury are children ages 0 to 4, teens ages 15 to 19 and senior adults ages 65 and over.

The financial costs (medical bills and lost productivity) associated with brain injuries are staggering and are estimated to be in the range of $78.5 billion dollars per year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, as anyone with a family member who has a significant brain injury will tell you, the emotional and physical costs are even greater.
