Severe brain damage is one of the worst injuries anyone can sustain, and it occurs everywhere and every day in the United States, including in Oklahoma. People can suffer brain injuries from falls, motor vehicle accidents and contact sports. Once a person sustains such an injury, the next question is whether it will be temporary or permanent. There is no guarantee that a brain injury patient will be able to recover completely or even get close to the level of functioning before the injury even after treatment, therapy and rehabilitation. Because of this, researchers continue to conduct tests to find new methods to reduce the effects of brain injury.

In 2012, an estimated 214,000 older Americans were injured, and 5,560 were killed in accidents.
