Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) October 30, 2011
The personal injury attorneys from Michigan Auto Law have released a new, online resource center with information on several common accident-related personal injuries.
"Life can become very difficult for people who have been hurt in a Michigan car accident. Many auto accident victims are unsure of their legal rights and what medical care and tests they need," said personal injury lawyer Steven M. Gursten, partner of Farmington Hills-based Michigan Auto Law.
"They also don't realize that the disabilities caused by serious injuries like traumatic brain injury (TBI) can become progressively worse if they do not receive treatment. It's common for doctors and hospitals to miss TBI when tending to more obvious physical injuries," Gursten added.
The Michigan personal injury resource center has nearly 100 pages of extensive information, such as frequently asked questions, treatment, testing, anatomy and how to get help from a personal injury attorney.
Here are the different sections:

Said Gursten, "Our injury attorneys put together this information in an easy to understand format to help protect accident victims on their paths to recovery."
Gursten noted that the information in the personal injury resource center is not intended to substitute for doctor advice, and that accident victims must never try to self-diagnose. "If you've been hurt in an auto accident, the first and most important thing you need to do is see a doctor for medical help."
