Handling an Accident Properly

If you, or a loved one, have been in a car accident, there are a few things that should be done.
Obtain the information of the other person or persons involved in the accident. This includes their driver’s license and insurance information. You should also take a picture of the scene of the accident and any property damage.
Call the police.
Consult with a personal injury attorney before speaking to anyone representing the other party or before signing anything.
See a healthcare provider, even if you do not feel like you have been seriously injured.

When the brain itself has been damaged by some type of traumatic force, such as blow directly to the head or an impact that causes the brain to shift within the skull.

A person does not have to lose consciousness or experience a skull fracture to sustain a traumatic brain injury. For example, a car crash may not cause impact to the head, but can cause ‘whiplash’ in which the neck is rapidly jerked forward and back.

The brain strikes the edges of the skull due to the neck movement which can cause internal trauma.
