Does a brain injury shorten life expectancy?

Brain injuries can be temporary with mild symptoms that can fade shortly. Other times, they may be lifelong conditions that impair one’s ability to function in their everyday life as they did prior to the accident. If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury from an accident, contact Agruss Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that about 50% of people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) will experience further decline in their daily lives or die within 5 years of their injury. It is important to keep in mind that this statistic depends on the severity of the injury. Of course, with extremely severe injuries, there is a greater likelihood of a shorter life expectancy. 

It is important to realize that one’s brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It is where messages controlling every other aspect of the body are received and sent from. So, the CDC also says that even after receiving inpatient rehabilitation services for a moderate or severe TBI, a person’s life expectancy is 9 years shorter. However, these rehabilitation services help victims try to gain as much control as possible over their new lives.
