The Brain Injury Association of South Carolina has been working to raise public awareness of brain injuries, an important issue in South Carolina. The organization recognized March as Brain Injury Awareness Month and organized a rally at the State House to educate people about brain injuries and their debilitating effects.

According to the Brain Injury Association, traumatic brain injury is the number one cause of death for people between the ages of 1 and 44. What’s more, an estimated 61,000 South Carolina residents live with permanent disability from a traumatic brain injury.

South Carolina Brain Injury Statistics

Each year more than 1,000 people die in this South Carolina because of a brain injury, which can occur from a number of different circumstances. The top causes of brain injuries in South Carolina are falls and motor vehicle accidents.

While it’s impossible to be fully protected from brain injury accidents, you can take steps to remain safer. Buckling your seatbelt whenever you’re in an automobile and wearing a helmet on every motorcycle ride may help prevent a brain injury.
