ABI NETWORK

Are you involved in an accident? Did you suffer any injuries? The common injuries suffered in an accident include brain, neck injury or whiplash and even spinal cord injuries.
 
If you suffer a brain injury after an accident, how is the severity measured? The seriousness of a brain injury is determined by where in the brain you have an injury. The swelling that occurs and how much of your brain is injured, matters.
 
Medical experts will conduct tests such as:

  • Electroencephalograms or otherwise known as EEGs
  • Taking CT Scans to help them understand the extent of the injuries to the brain.

However, the tests are not enough to assist in determining how severe the injury is. In such instances, they will need to use additional techniques. Popular methods used are, GCS or the Glasgow Comma Scale, in conjunction with the length of time that the patient has Post Traumatic Amnesia.
 
PTA is where the patient has troubles thinking, concentrating, remembering, etc. What can you use to estimate how fast one recovers? The recovery time taken by each patient depends on:

  • Their age
  • General health
  • Whether they suffer other injuries
  • The type and seriousness of the injury that they suffer, etc.

The more serious the injuries, the longer it takes to recover. For a FREE consultation approach Kalsi & Associates, a team of personal Injury Lawyers to discuss your confidential matter.

‘Blank emotion’: Family shocked after 23-year-old killed in accident

The mother of a 23-year-old guy who was killed in a fiery collide on the Queen Elizabeth Way said her child was a “good boy” who was very dynamic in sports.

Timothy Boissiere died Tuesday when the SUV he was riding in was concerned in a fiery collision with two transport trucks in the eastbound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way near Trafalgar Road.

The accident occurred at approximately 9:20 p.m. on Tuesday. Provincial cops said four vehicles were concerned in the crash, including a transport truck and flatbed truck.

OPP said a car and the transport truck collided, and then an SUV and the flatbed truck hit the rear of the transport. A spark set fire to a magnitude of diesel fuel that spilled through the crash. The vehicles were “unrecognizable” after the crash, OPP said.

Boissiere, who turned 23 this month, was on his way to play hockey with a buddy when the crash happened. The young guy was also a dedicated MMA fighter.

On Thursday, his mother, Charmaine Boissiere, spoke out; saying his family – including Timothy’s father and two sisters — is stressed with the overwhelming loss.

“The dad is not good at all,” Charmaine said. “Tim was very, very close with his dad.”

Charmaine said she learned about her son’s loss when officers came to her entrance.

“You now have a blank feeling all of a unexpected,” Charmaine said. “It’s actually tough to enlighten.”

The identity of the other man who was killed in the accident has not been made public, but police have said that his family has been informed.

Following the crash, it took crews 18 hours to re-open the road because the fire had sourced damage to the exterior of the path.
