Of course, traumatic brain injuries are a serious threat in car accidents as well. TBIs can cause significant memory loss; they can cause dramatic changes in your mood or lead to severe headaches and migraines; they can lead to disrupted vision; and in the worst cases, they can lead to a long-term or permanent disability. Traumatic brain injuries are very serious, and those who have suffered one in a car accident need to consider their legal situation.
