Fight for what you deserve after a crash with a drunk driver

You headed out for a night on the town knowing that there would be people intoxicated around you, but you didn't think anyone would be on the roads while drunk. Unfortunately, one of those drivers collided with you as you crossed the street, and now you have serious injuries that need consistent, long-term care.

Teen killed in rollover accident in Connecticut

It's always a tragedy when a teenager or child is killed in a car accident.

This is how a traumatic brain injury changes your life

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the brain is impacted by an outside force. Usually, that force is violent, like hitting your head on the ground or on a window during a car crash. Traumatic brain injuries range from minor concussions to aneurysms and other serious conditions. To diagnose the condition, your doctor may need to perform a magnetic resonance image (MRI).

What are some injuries you might not notice after a crash?

After a car crash, you might feel okay. It's a false sense of security, though, because many injuries that people suffer in crashes don't emerge until later on, when the adrenaline from the crash wears off. The body creates the burst of adrenaline as a fight-or-flight response to protect you, but it can hinder your ability to know if you're hurt. That's why it's always important to go to the hospital after a crash, even if you think you're okay.

These are the steps you should take after a car crash
