What Causes Most Traumatic Brain Injuries?
There are over 1.5 million people who suffer TBIs every year in the U.S.—and over 64,000 people lost their lives to traumatic head injuries in 2020 alone.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused when a forceful bump or blow strikes the head or when an object penetrates the skull and pierces the brain. A traumatic brain injury can be categorized as a mild TBI, a moderate TBI, or a severe TBI. There are multiple causes of TBIs, and many of them are completely preventable.
