Overview

Transportation accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians cause half of all TBIs and the largest portion of TBI in people under age 75.[1] For those aged 75 and older, falls cause the majority of TBIs.[1] Approximately 20% of TBIs are due to violence, such as firearm assaults and child abuse, and about 3% are due to sports injuries.[1] Half of TBI incidents involve alcohol use.[1]
