More than 5 million Americans live with disabilities from brain injury, more than 100,000 of which are Minnesotans. Common causes of brain injuries include automobile crashes, motorcycle crashes, and falls. In fact, brain and chest injuries are the most frequent cause of death in collisions without seatbelts. Bicycle crashes are also a common cause of brain injuries. Each year, more than 500,000 people go to hospital emergency departments with bicycle-related injuries—about 350,000 of these individuals are children under the age of 15. Of those children, about 130,000 sustain brain injuries.

Your treatment may also include expensive medications you’ll need to take throughout your life and a wide variety of rehabilitation services.
