It happens to even the most conscientious drivers-you get a speeding ticket. Often, it's because you're driving in an unfamiliar part of town and you're not certain what the speed limit is. At other times, it can simply be a product of distracted driving-you're trying to get the kids in the back seat to behave or you're thinking about everything you have to do when you get to your destination. It's easy to get caught up in the flow of traffic and be the one who gets pulled over, even though everyone else is speeding.
Long-term consequences of a traumatic brain injury are not always obvious in the weeks and months following a serious car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident. Depending on the area of the brain injured and the severity of the injury, people experiencing traumatic brain injury often suffer from memory loss, chronic headaches, loss of the senses of taste and smell, cognitive impairment, loss of dexterity, and increased risk for certain kinds of neurological disorders. As a result, people suffering from traumatic brain injury often need intense physical therapy, in-home nursing care, various kinds of medical equipment and even surgery. That's why it's important in traumatic brain injury cases to demand compensation proportional to the financial impact of the injuries involved.
