Since we were little, we were often told that we only have one head, meaning, we should be more careful when doing certain activities. With regards to automobiles, motorists in Virginia and elsewhere do not often think about protecting their heads while traveling in a vehicle. However, the reality is that a head trauma is a likely injury in a car accident.
While many injuries could befall an accident victim, the unfortunate reality is that few injuries are more severe than a brain injury. This type of injury is not only difficult to treat, but also can be challenging or impossible to fully recover from. Thus, a victim is often left with many damages and financial hardship following an accident that has caused a brain injury.
