Brain Injury

A so-called mild head injury can be a significant and serious traumatic brain injury, with a major impact on family, personal relationships and employment, even though the person was not "knocked out" at the scene, did not suffer a skull fracture or any cuts or broken bones, and even though they may have been talking and exchanging their driver's license information and insurance information at the scene of the accident.

In crashes involving traumatic brain injury, it is quite typical that the injured person is at first unaware of the-significance of the event, and by the time that the consequences of the traumatic brain injury begin to interfere significantly with the person's life, neither they nor their family members relate the problems to the automobile accident, slip and fall, or whatever physical trauma occurred.
