Now that we have covered the less severe injuries caused by car accidents, this may be the most important of all information given so far. Head trauma can lead to Traumatic Brain Injury. It may be determined to be mild or may be severe. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury may go undiagnosed. If you suffer major injuries other than the traumatic brain injury, medical facilities may be more focused on them at the time of the accident. For example: if you have crushed a bone and the injury is very obvious. Medical facilities tend to focus on the obvious first. If they do not look for a traumatic brain injury because there is no obvious sign of trauma to the head, the TBI may go undiagnosed.
Coma patients will have CAT scans done or MRI to determine the damage to the brain. You may or may not have had these tests done but there is an enormous amount of knowledge and information out there for brain injured individuals. An entire Website has been designed for you or someone you know or care for. Visit tbilaw.com for information on traumatic brain injury. This site is built for the survivors of brain injury as well as those who care for brain injury survivors.
This site is designed to help and give information to those that have been in a car accident. The best help for all accidents is to prevent them. Even after an accident has occurred, further harm can be prevented by better preparedness for what does occur. One way to be better prepared is to share the information you see here, with others. With that in mind, we have created our Accident Prepared Kit. Share this link with everyone you know. Whether it is via E-mail, Social Networks or by printing it out and sharing it with your family, friends and co-workers to read before they are involved in a car accident, this is information everyone should know. No one plans on being in a car accident but the roads are dangerous. It is so much better to be prepared. It could you a lot of grief or even a life.
