According to the CDC, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is characterized by its upfront impact on the way that the brain works(opens in a new tab). It can lead to both short-term and long-term health complications, including disability and death. In 2019, an estimated 61,000 deaths were attributed to TBI(opens in a new tab), which translates to about 166 deaths per day. Brain injuries can be caused by accidents like falls, motor vehicle crashes, or firearm-related incidents. Some brain injuries are also due to medical mistakes.
