The brain is the control center of the body, which is why it is one of, if not the most important organs. Any injury to it can have serious repercussions to a person, affecting his abilities and, ultimately, his life.
One of the common categories of brain injury is TBI (traumatic brain injury), also known as intracranial injury. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates on their website that TBI is classified as a major cause of disability and death (about 30 percent of all injury deaths) in the United States. On a daily basis, 138 Americans die from injuries that include TBI. People who survive can suffer from effects that can last a few days or disabilities that they’ll carry for life.
