Car accident victim runs to raise brain injury awareness

Nine years ago, an Ontario man was the victim of a car accident. He was ejected through the front passenger window of an automobile and he suffered a severe brain injury. Today, he is six months into a run across Canada. His mission is to raise awareness for traumatic brain injuries.

He is hoping to have raised $100,000 by the end of the year. The runner, 25, admits that he did not understand the full extent of his injury when it happened, at the age of 16, and that he is still learning more and more about the extent of the damage today. He does recognize, however, the severity of an injury that caused bleeding in three parts of his brain. He also recognizes that individuals who see stars after a brain trauma, as well as those who experience other symptoms, need to seek medical attention. Adams passed through Edmonton last week but his message is just as critical here in Michigan.

Michigan residents suffer significant brain injuries and concussions each and every day, whether it be in a car accident, on the job or playing sports, among other activities. Unfortunately, many of these serious incidents are overlooked. Victims sometimes shake it off and refuse to seek medical attention for subsequent headaches, eye sensitivity, nausea and more. These symptoms, though sometimes fleeting, can be indicators of a more serious ailment.

Compared to other injuries and diseases, brain trauma is not completely understood by the public or the medical community. What were once thought of as minor bumps are now understood as more serious ordeals, especially when these injuries are repeated.

In Michigan, experienced brain injury attorneys can help those who sustain brain trauma. Without taking the time to evaluate an accident when it occurs, brain injury victims may run the risk of forgoing financial compensation that can help them thrive.
