How common is a traumatic brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries are more common than many Arizona residents may think. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were approximately 2.5 million reported cases of traumatic brain injuries in 2010 alone. That 2.5 million included hospitalizations, visits to emergency rooms and fatal accidents. Approximately 50,000 of those diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury died that same year.
