Intoxication, driver distraction, and driving while drowsy are not only leading causes of car accidents but can also lead to cars crashing into other objects like buildings. When a victim suffers a loss of consciousness, they may have sustained serious damages to their brain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is when the brain cannot function normally. The intense impact is a common reason for TBI and recovery from a TBI can be a life-long process.
