Over 2.5 million Americans each year require hospitalization or other medical treatment for traumatic brain injuries. Of that figure, an estimated 250,000 are children.
In another 50,000 cases, traumatic brain injury was cited as a contributing cause of the victim’s death. Today alone, over 130 people will die from a traumatic brain injury in the United States. Traumatic brain injuries are often avoidable or foreseeable, and may be the result of a third party’s negligent conduct.
