The age-adjusted rates for causes of injury, for TBI Inpatient discharges identify falls as
the most common cause, followed by motor vehicle crashes. People ages 65 and older
are most likely to have a hospital stay for TBI from falls, and those ages 15 to 24 are
more likely to have hospital stay for TBI from a motor vehicle crash.
