Who is affected by brain injury?


Brain injuries due to falls cause roughly 8,000 deaths and 56,000 hospitalizations yearly among Americans age 65 and older.

(babies, young sports players, and students in out of home placements)

Approximately 1 in 500 school-age children each year receive a head injury severe enough to be hospitalized.


Since the brain injury screening by the Veterans Administration (VA) began in April 2007, 2,029 Nebraska veterans have been screened for brain injury. Of those screened, 500 Nebraska veterans have screened positive and 316 have agreed to undergo a full brain injury assessment.
