Understanding the primary variety of brain injuries

When it comes to traumatic brain injuries, there are those which result from primary injuries and those which are considered to have resulted from secondary factors. Of the two types of primary injuries, there is an open, penetrating type and a closed, non-penetrating of injury.

Tips for protecting your rights after a fender-bender

None of us gets behind the wheel thinking we'll be in an accident. When a collision does occur, it's easy to panic and lose sight of what's important. Even fender-benders can understandably leave you shaken up. Knowing what to do in advance is critical for keeping a cool head - and protecting your rights down the road.

Trust your instincts if you suspect your child has a brain injury

Can 'I'm sorry' really make a difference in a malpractice case?

After a 59-year-old woman had a hysterectomy in 2007, she didn't go home the next day as she thought she would. Instead, she was in a coma for several weeks and had to have an additional five surgeries. When she began seeking answers for what went wrong, she couldn't get answers. She would hear the surgeon and hospital personnel say, "things didn't go well." The woman, who is a professor of nursing and an attorney, was determined to find out what went wrong -- "even if it takes the rest of [her] life."

Traumatic brain injuries affect many victims differently

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common injuries that can occur, often in a car accident or as part of a sports injury. A TBI can change many aspects of a person and the way that they interact with their environment -- often indefinitely. If you or someone you love has suffered a TBI in a car accident, it is important to consider that the injury may have long-lasting effects that are difficult to predict.
