Often when people hear about traumatic brain injuries, they tend to envision accidents related to sports. In reality, falls are the number one leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, followed closely by car crashes. This information, courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control, is true across all age groups.
If you have recently been in a car crash, it is important to closely monitor your body’s response and recovery after the accident. If you suspect a TBI, immediately seek help from a qualified physician who can diagnose you and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. If your car accident was due to the fault of another, it may also be time to seek legal action. This is especially true if your injuries cause you to miss extended periods of work or not be able to continue your line of work at all. Other major expenses resulting from an accident may include medical bills. If you or a loved one has recently been in a car accident due to the fault of another, please contact Altoona, PA area personal injury attorney Doug Stoehr to set up an initial, free consultation.
