Did you know that falls and car accidents are some of the leading causes of TBI each year? Just take a look at the statistics: Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of TBI deaths, with rates being highest for adults aged 20-24. Falls also result in the greatest number of TBI visits in an emergency room, with 62,334 hospitalizations. Falls are actually the leading cause of non-deadly TBIs. These rates are highest for children who fall between 0-4 and adults who are 75 and older. In America, close to 1.7 million people sustain a TBI every year. About 52,000 will succumb to these injuries and pass away, and 275,000 will be hospitalized.
