You are hurt and confused, but you are not alone. Unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury in the United States. Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) at 35.2 percent. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about half of brain injuries suffered by children up to age 14 and about 61 percent of all brain injuries suffered by adults age 65 years and older are attributed to fall accidents. Unintentional injuries, which include slip and fall accidents, are also the leading cause of death for people age one to 44 and the fourth leading cause of death for all age groups.
