What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Contrary to common thought, Brain Injuries are not limited to those who do daring and adventurous exploits: Anyone can suffer from a brain injury from any everyday incident. Particularly, men between the ages of fifteen and twenty-four are the most likely to sustain such an injury. However, those who have already had a brain injury have a high probability of receiving a second injury since the first often inhibits natural capabilities.

Unfortunately, the number of individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury and are living with the resulting consequences is incredibly high. In Florida alone, around 369,600 are currently living in recovery from a TBI (traumatic brain injury). This year, the number is supposed to increase by nearly 65,750. Ten years ago, the number of traumatic brain injuries for the state reached around 93,000. Brain injuries resulted in 71,400 emergency stops, 17,700 hospitalizations, and 3,900 deaths in the same year.
