Anyone can suffer a brain injury. However, there are several groups of people that are at greater risk for sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These groups include:
- Men, especially those between 15 and 24 years of age
- Children, primarily newborns to 4-years-olds
- Seniors, particularly those over the age of 75
There are many reasons why these three groups of people tend to suffer a higher rate of brain injuries. Men are more likely to engage in war, fights, contact sports, use firearms, and take more risks on the road when driving (risks like speeding and not wearing seat belts). Mean are also more likely to work in industries that use heavy equipment or require manual labor, making them more vulnerable to a head injury.
Children most commonly suffer traumatic brain injuries due to falling. However, being involved in traffic accidents and being victims of child abuse are additional causes of brain trauma in children.
Falls are also the main cause of TBI in the elderly; however, nursing home abuse and motor vehicle accidents are also contributors to seniors suffering brain injuries.
