Brain Injury Your Injury, Our Fight

Houston Brain Injury Lawyer

When you hear the terminology “brain injury,” what comes to mind? Someone who suffers from a congenital, hereditary, or degenerative condition? A baby who was deprived of oxygen in the womb, resulting in a life-altering condition like cerebral palsy (CP) or hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)? Or, do you think of a loved one’s traumatic brain injury (TBI) diagnosis that stems from a hazardous incident such as a motor vehicle accident, assault, or fall?

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAUSA) describes most head injuries like the ones described above as falling into a broader acquired brain injury (ABI) category. BIAUSA notes that these serious brain injuries can have either a traumatic or non-traumatic onset. No matter the onset, these serious head injuries have the same end result in that they impact functionality.

How Common Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A recent report published by the National Institutes for Health (NIH) details how as many as 1.7 million individuals suffer a TBI annually. Another statistic published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) describes how at least 223,000 were hospitalized with a TBI diagnosis in 2019.

How Often Is a Brain Injury Fatal?

An estimated 176 Americans died daily from TBI injuries in 2020, a number that equates to nearly 65,000 annual deaths. The largest percentage of traumatic brain injury-related fatalities affects children and teens.

Who Most Commonly Suffers a Brain Injury?

CDC data shows that at least 15% of American high schoolers reported suffering a recreation or sports-related head injury later diagnosed as a TBI in 2019.

That doesn’t come as a surprise considering how the previously mentioned NIH report referenced how the two populations most likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury are teens between the ages of 15 and 19, and older adults that are 65 or over.

Other Populations With a High Brain Injury Risk

Additional information published by the CDC suggests that the following individuals are more likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury that either results in long-term health setbacks or claims their life:

  • Incarcerated individuals
  • Rural residents
  • Ethnic or racial minorities
  • The homeless
  • Active military service members or veterans
  • Domestic violence survivors
