Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a serious form of injury that can affect victims of personal injury accidents. These damaging injuries can result when victims' brains suffer impacts with other surfaces or when a brain is punctured by a foreign object. In Washington, a pedestrian accident victim may suffer TBI if they suffer a head injury as a result of their collision.
It is the time of year when families all across Washington begin to pack their suitcases to visit their distant relatives and friends. While some may travel to local airports to fly to their final destinations, others will load up their vehicles and take on holiday traffic on the roads. For those traveling by car, awareness and safety should be important considerations to avoid deadly collisions.
In the not-so-distant past, a driver who was unable to get home on their own might call a taxicab to take them from a party or bar back to their residence. While taxis are still in operation in Washington state it is now more common for individuals to use ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft to locate drivers near them who may get them where they want to go.
