Accident causes amnesia and second wedding

After a car accident in Tennessee, you could suffer from a number of different ailments and injuries, like broken bones, concussions or whiplash. However, one issue that people don't often consider is an onset of amnesia, which can wipe out memories of the accident and the time before the accident.

That has become a very clear reality for one couple, as a young woman who was involved in an accident a short time after she got married discovered that she could not remember the ceremony or reception at all. Her husband said that she did not even fully know that the two of them had gotten married. She didn't tell him about it initially, thinking he might be mad, but then finally broke the news.

Rather than being angry, the man decided to take positive action. He may not be able to bring those memories back, but he can help to create new ones. Less than a year after the couple first tied the knot, they're now planning to have a second wedding, one that the woman will be able to remember.

The crash happened less than three weeks after the first wedding, and the woman's injuries were so extensive that physical therapy was needed for months. Her memory loss isn't just of the wedding or the time shortly afterwards, but actually starts more than a month before they were wed, meaning she has forgotten almost half of a year of her life.

If you're suffering from injuries like this after an accident, you may be entitled to compensation, especially because of the pain and suffering such a thing can put you through.
