Brain Injury Statistics: Infographic

Author: Courtney Allen Van Winkle, Richmond Personal Injury Attorney

Every 21 seconds someone in the United States sustains a brain injury. This often results in a litany of difficult choices and medical treatments for the injured and their family. Brain injuries are among the most devastating and traumatic afflictions one can suffer. They are caused by a wide variety of factors and present with a massive array of symptoms and conditions that experts are still struggling to understand. Often, brain injuries are permanent; requiring a lifetime of treatment and care.

Even a minor brain injury has the potential to seriously impact the victim’s life. Possible symptoms include personality changes, inability to concentrate, loss of coordination, and decreased cognitive function. Additionally, once a person has suffered one brain injury, their chances for another one more than triple. A second injury and the chances for a third increase eight times.
