California residents like you who have gotten into a severe crash with a truck before may be at a higher risk for a traumatic brain injury, or TBI.

Understanding federal anti-discrimination laws at work

What is whiplash?

Most people in California may have heard references to whiplash at different times but they may not really understand what it is.
