What are the most common causes of TBI or traumatic brain injuries?

According to federal statistics, motor vehicle accidents (including motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, mopeds and pedestrians) are overwhelmingly the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Falls, being struck by an object, violent crimes, sports injures and “shaken-baby” injuries are also leading causes.

One point four million (1.4M) Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, every year, and an estimated five point three million (5.3M) are living with disabilities as a result of brain injuries.

These figures do not include soldiers returning from overseas.

Needless to say, many soldiers, God bless them, suffer from mild to significant TBI injuries from combat related incidents.

Falls, being struck by an object, violent crimes, sports injures and “shaken-baby” injuries are also leading causes.
