My name is Dr. Nicole M. Eastman and I sustained my traumatic brain injury on December 15, 2010. I was on my way to work when my car was hit by a semi truck on I-696 E near the Van Dyke exit at approximately 65 miles per hour. The initial impact was from behind, which sent my car spinning in a counterclockwise direction. I was then hit in the driver's side, I ...lost consciousness, went under the trailer of the truck per my witness, and there was evidence of two other points of impact on my Chrysler Sebring. Much to my surprise, I was sent home from the emergency room without appropriate care. The physician did not even assess my concussion symptoms. The least that they should have done was a mini mental status exam, as one of the leading causes of death following discharge from an emergency room is CONCUSSION. I was sent home with papers saying, "No significant injuries sustained!". Oh and I was not even given any pain medicine to help with the pain that would intensify to the point of being unable to move. THIS LACK OF APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE IS UNFORTUNATELY ALL TOO COMMON.
