While falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, there are other causes. For instance, a car crash can result in a traumatic brain injury if you stop too quickly or are impacted and hit your head on the windshield, window or dashboard.
Brain injuries can be fatal; every seven minutes, someone dies from a traumatic brain injury. For those who don’t, recovery can be long and tedious. What’s devastating to realize is that many of these injuries could be prevented with better driving, protective equipment and other safety techniques.
It’s been shown that around 75 percent of people who suffer from a traumatic brain injury and return to work will lose their jobs within 90 days if they don’t have the right support to help them. After a collision, it’s important that you’re given that support, so you can move on with your life as quickly as possible. Whether that support is compensation, an aide or other medical devices, you deserve to receive the help you need.
