Personal injury attorney Franklin D. Azar & Associates recently published a blog post regarding taking care of head injuries following a car accident. The information is especially timely considering the shocking and sudden death of comedian and TV actor Bob Saget following an apparent untreated head injury on January 9, 2022. The blog post, published February 16, 2022, discusses the nature of concussions and other forms of traumatic brain injuries. Franklin D. Azar & Associates urges individuals to seek medical advice for even the smallest head injuries, because failing to seek proper medical attention in the critical first hours following an injury may lead to life-altering consequences. "In Saget's case, what might have appeared to be a simple mishap caused severe skull fractures, likely leading to confusion and loss of consciousness," said a representative of the law firm.
The blog post, referencing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provides the symptoms and consequences of a concussion and other forms of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
According to the CDC, there were approximately 61,000 TBI-related deaths in the United States in 2019, an average of 166 deaths a day.
"Because the severity of a head injury may not be manifested immediately after a crash, all such injuries should be treated seriously. Seek medical help right away, and don't leave anyone who suffered a blow to the head (or even a 'slight bump') unmonitored," said a representative of the law firm.
According to the CDC, the second leading cause of TBIs are car accidents, comprising 17.3% of such injuries. The blog post's content provides information to drivers, passengers, and third-parties to understand the signs of a brain injury and urges them to seek immediate medical attention to protect their health and well-being adequately.
