Brain injuries: After the accident

Brain injuries are one of the most devastating possible outcomes from a car, truck or motorcycle accident. The brain is responsible for all of the body's functions — both physical and mental — meaning a traumatic brain injury can have extensive repercussions, from being unable to walk or talk normally to experiencing problems with memory loss.

Emergency signs of spine injuries

When a person is involved in an accident, such as one in which two vehicles collide, there is always a concern that somebody could be injured. Spine injuries are extremely common in motor vehicle accidents, especially those in which one vehicle hits another from behind.

What can be done to treat traumatic brain injuries?

A traumatic brain injury or TBI occurs when an external force disrupts the normal function of the brain. Normally, that external force is a severe bump, jolt or blow to the head. However, TBIs can also be caused by something penetrating the head and causing damage to the brain.

New study examines causes of head injuries in children

Researchers at two medical institutions are offering some new information about how children receive head injuries. Medical researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine reviewed over 43,000 children during their investigation. The comprehensive study focused on determining the most frequent causes of childhood head injuries.

Many motor vehicle accidents in the state of North Carolina are considered minor, meaning that nobody involved was seriously injured. On the other side of things, there are accidents in which one or more person suffers a serious injury, which can lead to many complications in the future.

Discover your legal options for brain injuries due to an accident

Receiving a brain injury in an accident is devastating for both the victim and his or her surviving family members. Many times such an injury results in severe debilitation that can last anywhere from a few weeks to a lifetime. Large and heavy commercial trucks in particular can cause painful and catastrophic injuries to those occupying smaller vehicles, including neck and spine injuries as well as brain injuries.

Side-impact car collisions linked to brain injury

According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, side-impact car accidents may put occupants at greater risk of traumatic brain injuries. In a study the university published, victims of side-impact collisions are about three times more likely to experience serious brain trauma. The study, authored by Jeffrey Bazarian, M.D., MPH and other personnel, also found additional evidence that suggests head injuries in side-impact crashes are typically more severe.

OSHA issues warning about cell tower dangers

You may not have noticed, but the number of cell phone subscribers in North Carolina and across the U.S. has exploded over the last decade. In 2005, there were just over three million subscribers. As of last year, that number skyrocketed to 150 million. To accommodate so many more customers and provide clearer signals, mobile providers have been busy building cell towers.
