Causes of head injury.
Falls are the leading cause of head injury (40%) in America, and the youngest and oldest Americans suffer more falls than other age groups. More than half (55%) of the head injuries suffered by children were caused by falls. More than two-thirds (81%) of head injuries in adults aged 65 and older are caused by falls. Accidental falls, motor vehicle collisions, and assaults are other measurable causes of head injury. Men more than women have higher incidences of head injury.
Long-term effects of a head injury.
Only recently has the public become aware of the long-term effects of head injuries like concussions. Professional football players in particular report experiencing the effects of a head injury long after their playing days have ended. More science is emerging that even in head injuries like concussion, the damage can be measurable.

Life after a head injury.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly two million Americans each year suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Treatment for people who sustain head injuries may involve emergency care, rehabilitation, disease-and-health care monitoring and maintenance, including support within and outside the home. Head injuries change the lives of their sufferers and the lives of their family as well. Special accommodations in the home are expensive and labor intensive and visiting or live-in care may be prescribed by doctors.
