Traumatic brain injury can have long-term impacts

Each day, more than 130 people pass away as a result of injuries, including injuries to the brain. Individuals in West Virginia and elsewhere who are fortunate enough to live after suffering traumatic brain injury unfortunately do not always escape unscathed. Severe and even moderate cases of brain injury can lead to lifelong problems.

Car wreck death rate high in West Virginia

A whopping 242 individuals passed away in auto crashes in West Virginia between the start of last year and Dec. 29. This rate of death associated with car crashes is greater than the national average. West Virginia also appears to have had more car wreck deaths than surrounding states have had.

Defective Roadways Cause Accidents Too

Negligent actions by drivers are the most common causes for road accidents. However, some accidents aren't the fault of drivers. Sometimes defective roadways can cause drivers to lose control thereby increasing the risks of motor vehicle collisions.

Ram trucks considered dangerous products due to defect

Motor vehicle owners in West Virginia may be impacted by a product recall involving Ram trucks. Fiat Chrysler has decided to recall almost 1.8 million of these trucks, mostly in North America. The trucks are considered dangerous products because a driver can shift one out of park, even if his or her foot is not on the truck brake. The shifting can even happen without a key in the truck's ignition.

Injuries to Children on Another Person's Property

Property owners have an important responsibility to ensure that the conditions on their properties are safe for any person who visits the property. Property owners need to be even more careful when children are involved. Premises liability law is more stringent when children, rather than adults, are injured. This is because children cannot identify potentially dangerous situations as readily as adults. And, many children are not capable or mature enough to act in a way to avoid injury from hazardous conditions.

Spinal cord injury patients may benefit from using special bikes

Injury to the spinal cord is typically linked to physical impairments in the long term. Unfortunately, these impairments may lead to psychological and social complications that have a negative impact on a patient's quality of life in West Virginia and other states. However, recent research indicated that special bikes may help to improve the quality of life of those suffering from spinal cord injury.
