Car crash caused teen’s traumatic brain injury

A 17-year-old high school junior suffered a serious injury in September in a car accident that kept him hospitalized for a full eight weeks, part of that time in a coma. Thankfully, the boy has now managed to return to school, despite having suffered a traumatic brain injury.

He has no personal recollections of the accident. What occurred though is that he was in his vehicle as the sun was starting to come up, close to an intersection. He was traveling to school at approximately 7:40 a.m., and a second car collided with his, impacting on the passenger side. Emergency responders summoned to the scene did what they could for him there, but determined that he needed, in his unconscious condition, to be rushed by air to a hospital. He remained unconscious for a full two days. After five days of treatment there, he spent time at two rehabilitation centers in the area.

The prognosis by his doctors was that his recovery might take up to two years, but he managed to return to school after a mere two months. He was fortunate, as many accident victims who suffer traumatic brain injuries may suffer long term or permanent impairment of their cognitive abilities and functioning. As experience has shown with many accidents resulting in Ohio brain injuries, extensive occupational, physical, and speech therapy is frequently required to attempt to achieve recovery.

Accident victims who suffer such brain injuries often need therapy as well as additional medical and personal care, sometimes for a lifetime. The enormous costs of such care and treatment makes it imperative to try to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit from those responsible for the accident.
