Driver trapped and seriously injured in Virginia head-on crash

When motorists in Virginia get behind the wheel of a vehicle, they are tasked with operating the vehicle safely. Unfortunately, there are various obstacles that can get in the way of a driver operating a motor vehicle safely. Distractions, recklessness and intoxication could cause a driver to unsafely operate a vehicle, even causing the automobile to drift from their lane. Whether it is because a driving is texting, speeding or under the influence of alcohol, traveling into the wrong way of traffic could result in a serious or even fatal head-on collision.

Unfortunately, things can break. Whether it is big or small, expensive or cheap, the products that we use do not last forever. While products breaking because of misuse or the age of a product are likely to occur, a product breaking because of a defect is unexpected. Consumers using a defective product could suddenly find themselves dealing with much pain and suffering because of the injuries suffered.

Most individuals in Virginia understand that the brain is a vital organ. A brain not only provides cognitive thought but is also the source of memories and what makes a person himself or herself.

This is often apparent immediately; however, some brain injuries cause an accident victim to suffer years or even decades after the incident.

When we think of brain trauma, we often think of concussions suffered by athletes. While this is a concerning type of injury caused by contact sports, this is not the only cause of a brain injury. Even more so, these injuries can be much more severe than a concussion. Those in Virginia and elsewhere involved in a serious accident could suffer a wide range of injuries, including those to the head. A serious brain injury could cause immediate health issues, while also causing long-term or life-long problems.
