Formula One Race Car Driver, Schumacher, in Critical Condition after Ski Accident Resulting in Traumatic Brain Injury

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Ironic indeed that a person who has had a long career driving race cars at 200 mph without incident, sustains a traumatic brain injury while engaging in an entirely different sport, snow skiing.  Brain injuries can result from any type of high impact to the head and are common in many different high impact sports.  They are just as common, though, in persons who are involved with auto accidents, slip and fall incidents, and any other number of mishaps that occur to many thousands of individuals every year.  It is important to seek prompt medical attention including full diagnostic studies like CT scans and MRIs if you have been involved in any type of incident that results in head trauma and causes symptoms such as loss of consciousness, headaches, memory loss and loss or alteration of any other cognitive function such as movement or speech.  It is also important to seek the advice of a quality personal injury lawyer if you believe that the incident was the result of another person’s or entitie’s lack of due care or negligence.
