Given the size and mass of the rigs driven by truckers, they face the high risk of causing traumatic brain injury (TBI). The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1.5 million people suffer brain injuries every year. In this category of brain injury people, more than 50,000 people die and an estimated 80,000 people are permanently disabled every year. It is estimated that there are more than 5 million people in the United States are living with effects of brain injury related disabilities.
Among these statistics, thousands are truck drivers that suffer traumatic brain injuries each year. Truck drivers suffer them in countless ways, including highway accidents, pickup and delivery locations, and while working at terminals, docks, warehouses, and they can dramatically alter that driver’s life forever. Brain injuries are serious and unlike any other injury because they can occur on a microscopic level, which means they are often not detected by MRI, CT scans, EEGs, and X-Rays. Despite the lack of physical evidence, brain injuries have serious physical, mental and emotional consequences. Science has shown that even individuals that do not suffer a loss of consciousness or only briefly lose consciousness can suffer permanent brain injury and cognitive impairment.
