All roadways can present unsafe conditions for drivers, passengers and pedestrians. This risk is heightened when a driver is failing to meet the proper level of care to ensure the safety of others by driving while preoccupied, failing to regard weather conditions or disregarding traffic signs, among other actions. It is therefore important that all drivers act properly and apply the proper level of care to prevent injuries to others to the fullest extent possible.
Brain injuries, regardless of their cause, can have significant present and future consequences for victims. Bruising, swelling and tearing of the brain can lead to permanent impairment or injuries that require long-term hospitalization and therapy.
