Head and Brain Injuries Resulting from Car Crashes
Injuries to the head, or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) can occur after being involved in a car crash. The significant force involved in a motor vehicle crash can produce head and brain trauma. It has been widely publicized that concussions can have devastating and long-term effects.
It is crucial to have a thorough medical evaluation if you have hit your head, lost consciousness or suffered any type of injury in an auto accident. Even if you think your injuries are minor, it is adviseable to have a thorough medical evaluation. Sometimes symptoms take a while to become noticeable. Never assume you are going to be fine. To protect your health and to honor those who love and depend on you for their support, get yourself checked by a qualified physician very soon after your car accident.

Traffic was detoured at Meadowview Road. Westbound traffic was directed to proceed through the Home Depot parking lot as rescue personnel and investigators worked the scene of the accident.
Insurance Available Even if You Cannot Locate Hit and Run Driver
Many people are under the impression they need to find the hit and run motorist in order to make a claim for damages for the injuries they have suffered. The majority of the time, that is absolutely not the case. So long as the party struck by the hit and run driver owned a vehicle or someone living in his or her home owned a car, he or she is more than likely covered by that policy of insurance.
Check for Uninsured Motorist Coverage
Most policies of insurance have uninsured motorist coverage. If the injured person had auto insurance, he also has uninsured motorist insurance in California unless he signed a waiver not to have this type of coverage. If you have questions regarding insurance coverage after being struck by a hit and run driver, please call me for free, friendly advice.
Watch the Youtube Video below for more helpful information. Sometimes hit and run drivers do not stop at the accident scene due to not having a auto insurance. This is why uninsured motorist coverage is so beneficial.
