Cutting Edge Tests Reveal the Severity of Head Injuries

Head injuries can occur as the result of a serious accident in which someone strikes their head directly, or a contrecoup injury may occur when someone is rear-ended and their head whips back and forth. The challenges of cases involving head injuries in the past was the subjective nature of such injuries. For example if someone said they have a headache, it is impossible to know whether or not that is true. However, nowadays there are cutting-edge tests that can show the severity of the injuries to the jury and insurance companies. There are also tests that can evaluate memory loss and the person's ability to use the executive functioning of their brain to organize their life. These tests can go a long way toward ensuring that victims get the full compensation they deserve.
