Brian injuries can cause minor damage or permanent and severe disabilities

Some brain injuries are minor, causing only a temporary loss of memory. However, brain injuries can cause permanent memory loss and impairments. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), about 3.17 million people are living with long-term disability from traumatic brain injury (TBI) that affects their ability to perform daily activities and pursue full-time employment.

People with serious brain injuries may have difficulty:

  • Paying attention
  • Remembering things

  • Learning
  • Talking
  • Behaving
