Impact of TBI Related Injuries
The approximate annual economic burden of TBI in the United States.
Direct expenditures of hospitalizations and/or fatality-related costs due to TBI.
There were over 2.5 million TBI-related Emergency room visits in 2014.
Approximately 288,000 TBI-related hospitalizations occur annually.
Lifetime costs for one person surviving a severe TBI can reach $4 million
Acute rehabilitation costs for survivors of a severe TBI have been shown to average about $1,000 a day and the average stay is about 55 days.
Average costs rise dramatically for those individuals who undergo rehabilitation. In one study, after a 4-year followup, average costs for medical and long-term care services averaged $196,460 for survivors receiving rehabilitation services compared to $17,893 for those receiving no rehabilitation.
This does not account for the intangible costs borne by the families and friends of individuals who die prematurely from brain injury. For injured persons and their loved ones, the physical and emotional tolls from permanent disability are profound and impossible to quantify.
