New technology could detect severe brain injuries within seconds

Car accidents, sporting injuries and falls all have the potential to cause someone in Pennsylvania to injure their brain. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 30 percent of fatalities due to injuries in our nation feature traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

PennDOT must pay over $5 million for brain injury

Unsafe public roads can lead to serious and long-term injuries. In fact, a Delaware County jury recently awarded more than $4 million to a 63-year-old man who suffered a severe brain injury while riding his bicycle on a hazardous state road in Springfield. The jury found that PennDOT's negligent care of this road caused the victim to hit his head and suffer this injury.

Study examines why brain injury may lead to vision loss

Pennsylvania residents may already know that head injuries, including injuries to the brain, can be incredibly serious, especially when they result in additional complications. One significant complication that can follow a brain injury is the permanent loss of one's sight. However, one study has shed light on why a brain injury sometimes causes a person to lose his or her sight.

Study indicates soccer could cause brain injury to players

Brain damage suffered while playing a sport is most frequently associated with contact sports like football. Other sports with hard hits and unforgiving surfaces like ice hockey are also linked with traumatic brain injury. One sport that does not often lend itself to perceptions of risk of head injury is soccer. However, a new study is showing former players have had chronic traumatic encephalopathy. While football is king in Pennsylvania, those who play soccer also need to be concerned about brain injuries suffered while playing with symptoms arising incrementally.

Former football player files lawsuit over traumatic brain injury

Football is a major part of the landscape in Pennsylvania and those who play it are willing to look beyond the common risks for injury, particularly to the head, to play it. Those who oversee the sport are becoming increasingly responsible for making certain that the players are not placed back on the field after a possible brain injury. Since injuries to the head can result in traumatic brain injury and lead to long-term issues and permanent disability, those who have suffered from it due to negligence on the part of football coaches and overseers at school should consider a legal filing to be compensated.

Pennsylvania hockey player dies after traumatic brain injury

When playing any sport in Pennsylvania and throughout the U.S., there is a chance at injury. This is true not just for athletics, for any activity. Some, however, are more dangerous than others due to their sheer nature. If it is a contact sport with hard surfaces, then logic states it is more likely that a person will have a head injury at some point. Unfortunately, a head injury can result in a traumatic brain injury and cause significant, even fatal, damage. Those who have been affected by an injury of this kind or lost a loved one because of it need to have a full investigation into the incident to determine if steps could have been taken to prevent it or to provide treatment in its immediate aftermath of a possible brain injury to avoid troublesome scenarios.

Study examines brain trauma and death in football

Football is an ingrained activity throughout Pennsylvania. It can be a dangerous sport to play. Just how dangerous is only now beginning to be fully understood. With the violence that is inherent in the game, there are inevitable injuries. Unfortunately, many of these are head injuries that result in brain trauma. Studies are constantly being conducted and information examined to determine the frequency of a traumatic brain injury in young football players.

Tests discovered to diagnose a potentially fatal head injury

People in Pennsylvania and elsewhere sometimes partake in activities that pose serious risks to their head. Whether it is a bicycle ride, motorcycle cruise, playing a contact sport or traveling in an automobile, only some of these activities provide specific safety equipment, such as a helmet, to protect the skull or brain in the event of a serious accident. The reality is that even a head injury that seems minute could present serious problems down the line.

A deeper look at the causes, symptoms and treatment of TBIs

No one ever expects to be in a serious accident. Even more so, victims do not expect to suffer serious injuries such as brain trauma. Brain injury victims in Pennsylvania and other states across the nation are likely to incur long-term effects. This not only impacts the victim physically, mentally and emotionally, but it is also likely to affect them financially. For some individuals suffering a traumatic brain injury or a TBI, the recovery and treatment process could be lengthy and challenging.
