Car accidents: a leading cause of brain injury
Often times the damage that results from a car accident is not limited to the vehicle itself–it has a greater rippling effect. Drivers and passengers are both subject to severe injury and damage as a result of a crash collision. Injuries suffered in auto accidents can be extremely perilous and hazardous. In fact, statistics have shown that motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury. More alarming is the fact that the number of people suffering from traumatic brain injury greatly surpasses the number of people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Brain injury can drastically reduce your quality of life, hindering you from simple cognitive tasks and vastly impairing your motor skills.
