Brain Injuries after Car Collisions in West Virginia

Car collisions often cause injuries.  When an individual is treated after an auto collision, the emergency room physician immediately examines an individual for physical injuries- does the person have a broken bone, hurt neck/back, shattered pelvis, etc.  Because emergency room physicians often focus on treating the immediately present physical injuries, brain injuries resulting from car collisions often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.  This can occur because the victim may not immediately present with symptoms that indicate a type of brain injury, or because the physician is unaware that the victim hit his or her head in the car collision.
