TBI is the number one cause of mortality and disability in young adults in modern Western societies.Those injured by severe TBI at an earlier age will definitely need long term treatment.

Doehrman Chamberlain

This study shows why TBI prevention and awareness are so important for parents of young children. The CDC says that falls are the leading cause of TBI for children aged 0-4. Youngsters in this age group are also among the most likely to sustain a TBI because their heads are larger in relation to their bodies, and their neck muscles are not fully developed. Children of these ages cannot control the movement of their heads as well as adults and are more likely to have an accident or fall while learning skills such as walking or running.

Shane Mitchell

Age of injury are more equivalent found in young children as they are suffered from injury issues since from the childhood which is more recognized in the younger age and also influence the child's behavior. So parents should be more conscious about the behavior and studies of the children which protect them from age injuries.
