Costs

Annually, the cost for TBI for medical care and lost wages is $60 billion.(Findelstein E., Corso P., Miller T., and Associates, 2006)

Over a severe TBI survivor's lifetime, the cost of care can reach $4 million.(National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 1989)

The average acute rehabilitation cost for survivors of a severe TBI is $110,891, or about $1,000 per day. The average hospital and rehabilitation length of stay is about 55 days for those who are severely injured.(Whitlock J.A., Hamilton B.B., 1995)

These costs are conservative as the information found is from old estimates.
