Motor vehicle injury and fatalities down slightly

The National Safety Council (NSC) recently posted findings for motor vehicle-related injuries in 2018. The total fatalities were 40,000, which is an overall decrease by one percent from revised 2017 estimates. This estimate is down two percent from 2016. That measures to 12.19 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.24 deaths per million miles travelled.

What is a traumatic brain injury and what are the symptoms?

A traumatic brain injury can impact a victim for the rest of their life. This is a difficult situation to handle because there is likely nothing that could have prepared them for this. Many people don't realize exactly what constitutes a TBI, so finding out some important points is imperative for anyone who is interested in learning.

3 types of distractions drivers might face

Distracted driving is a serious problem that puts innocent people in danger of suffering serious injuries or death. These accidents are all preventable. Drivers need to pay attention to what is going on so they can make decisions based on safety.

New safety initiatives for trucking

With an eye towards eliminating or reducing the number of injured, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released a new set of initiatives for reducing injuries in the short term called the 2019-2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements. Some of these measures are also the focus of the National Safety Council, which has a broader mission to improve safety in all segments of our lives.

Assumption of risk on the slopes

Snowboarding and skiing are relatively dangerous sports with potential dangers that can cause injury or death. While skiers and riders are encouraged to enjoy the sports while remaining in control, one occasional premise for injury is boarders or skiers losing control and crashing into each other. Those who enjoy these sports understand that there is risk, but sometimes there is still potential for a personal injury lawsuit.

It's the season for slip and fall injuries

Slip and fall injuries can happen any time of year. However, walking seems to get more treacherous every winter as fewer people shovel their sidewalks and temperature shifts mean snow melts and then freezes into ice patches. Even handrails can ice over leaving those on foot to struggle with the very real fear that they could break a hip, injure their spin or become concussed if they hit their head when they fall.

New non-invasive equipment tests for concussions

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently cleared a new medical device called the EyeBox for detecting concussions. The relatively modest-sized piece of equipment (as opposed to a CT scan) designed by a neurosurgeon tracks the movements of the eye to detect signs of concussion. This clearance is based on years of testing and can be used on patients ages 5 to 67 years old.
