If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury in a car crash, your doctors might use several methods or tests to determine whether you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), issue a diagnosis, and prepare an appropriate treatment plan. TBI testing is a necessary step in the diagnosis and recovery process.

Neuropsychological testing is one of the most common tests used to detect TBI. This pen-and-paper test can take a full day, and sometimes two. It tests your memory, use of language, reading ability, IQ, and even senses like smell and taste. Doctors can use the results from this very precise test to determine which parts of your brain have been damaged, if any, and prepare a rehabilitation program suited to your needs.

TBI Testing - What to Expect from a Traumatic Brain InjuryYour doctor may also have you complete an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) test, which uses an elaborate machine to create an image of your brain. DTI (diffuse tensor imaging) is a very advanced form of MRI that was originally developed for veterans coming back from war with traumatic brain injures. It helps the doctor actually see the brain injury where they never could before, so they can more clearly understand your injury and the parts of the brain affected by it.

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you need a team of experts to help you get back on your feet. Doctors and medical professionals will outline a treatment program to aid your rehabilitation.

HH, Davison

I was treated very nicely and professionally with a lot of consideration and compassion for my disabilities suffered in a horrible car accident. Mr. Christensen and Sarah Stempky made sure I understood what was happening with my case and that everything was pulled together.

LG, Stockbridge

As an accident victim I had to have my leg amputated and I was in bad shape overall. David Christensen was a light in that experience. I ended up with an entire home modification to accommodate my disabilities. It was a very stubborn insurance company but David wouldn’t take no for an answer.

CB, Milford

If I had questions or worries Dave would address them with me because he knows what he is doing. I think the world of him. I felt he went above and beyond to turn a really bad situation around. I have hope now where before I felt powerless and miniscule and that these big insurance companies were just going to railroad me.
