In 2008, the Center for Disease Control released a statistic revealing that the causes of brain injury stem from:
- Assault (37%)
- Auto Accidents (25%)
- Sports Activities (11%)
- Falls (11%)
A different study revealed that 87% of those incarcerated in American jails suffered from brain injuries as well. Adam Lanza, the man responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, allegedly suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome. Tests are currently underway to determine if he had suffered any sort of brain injury, which may have led to the devastating shooting.
