Most rear-end collisions are caused by distracted drivers or drivers following too closely to the car ahead. In either case, it is the unsuspecting driver in the car ahead who may suffer whiplash, which may result in a variety of injuries such as problems with light sensitivity, depth-perception problems, tinnitus, memory problems, concentration, and balance. The list goes on and on and on.

A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
