Florida Brain Injury Statistics
According to data from 2013, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) accounted for 3,731 deaths and another 19,170 hospitalizations in the state of Florida. For those non-fatal brain injuries, the median charge for hospitalization was just over $46,000, with the average stay being three days. This does not include any on-going medical care, physical therapy, lost wages and other costs associated with suffering a brain injury.
Different Types of Brain Injury
Brain injuries can fall into one of two main categories; traumatic brain injury (TBI) and acquired brain injury (ABI). The causes for each of these are different, but each one results in brain dysfunction that can affect your quality of life.
A traumatic brain injury is usually the result of physical trauma by an external force. This can include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Physical assault
- Sports injuries
- Motor vehicle accidents
An acquired brain injury is typically caused at the cellular level, resulting in lack of oxygen to the brain or pressure and swelling. The causes can include:
- Heart attack
- Brain aneurysms
- Substance abuse
- Brain tumors
- Certain illnesses
