As the second largest city in the United States and the most populous city in California, Los Angeles can be a really busy city. With a lot of people leading busy lifestyles, things could get quite chaotic and accidents could happen. In traffic accidents within the state alone, the city leads at around 100 accident reports as of this writing, with three cities tied for the second at only eight reports each, according to the Accident Data Center.
These accidents lead to hundreds of fatalities and thousands of injuries. One of the injuries that may result from these accidents is traumatic brain injury (TBI), which happens when an external force hits a person’s head. Despite being a common injury, TBI can be missed initially as the immediate focus of the medical team is saving the person’s life.
