If you've gone down the grocery store aisles this holiday season, you may have noticed that something's missing: whipped cream. That delicious topping that adds a nice touch to pies, cakes and iced coffees has been a conspicuous no-show this year, and there's a tragic reason ? a workplace accident that took the life of one worker.
When people are involved in catastrophic car accidents, slip and fall accident or even minor fender benders, they are at risk of receiving traumatic brain damage. Any type of sudden impact to the head may cause the inner brain tissue to smack against the hard interior of the skull. This jolt can lead to severe brain tissue damage, and bleeding, bruising and inflammation can occur. The symptoms of brain damage may be immediate in some cases. In other instances, however, the victim may not know that they have a brain injury for several days or weeks after the accident occurred.
