Why You Need a Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Approximately 12,500 Americans will suffer a spinal cord injury each year. Aside from recovery, one of the greatest obstacles facing a spinal cord injury patient is the medical cost. According to research, the initial cost of hospitalization averages $140,000 with an average of $198,000 in first year expenses. For quadriplegics that number is closer to $500,000 with an average lifetime cost of over $1.35 million. Only half of spinal cord injury patients are covered by health insurance. Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the cells within the spinal cord are damaged or the nerve tracts that relay signals up and down the spinal cord become severed. [...]

Why Are Charter Bus Crashes So Common in the News Lately?

In August of 2016, five people were killed and many were injured when a charter bus crashed on route 99 near the town of Livingston, CA. in the Mojave Desert.

The bus involved in the crash had been cited for at least seven violations in two years, including allowing a driver behind the wheel with a suspended license.

Who is Responsible for a Firearm Accident Injury?

Firearm related accidental deaths and injuries have steadily declined nationwide over the past 25 years. Despite having the 8th lowest number of per capita gun deaths in the U.S. in 2014, California still suffered 2,935 deaths from firearms. In addition, 5,724 persons were hospitalized with non-fatal gunshot wounds that same year. Although accidental firearm deaths and injuries are uncommon compared to motor vehicle or workplace accidents, their occurrence is often sudden and traumatic. When it happens to a loved one, especially a child, it is heart wrenching. If you or someone you care about was injured or you lost a loved one due to a gun [...]

What Caused My Mesothelioma and Who is to Blame

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that attacks the tissue surrounding the body’s internal organs known as the mesothelium. The function of this tissue is to provide the fluid that acts as a lubricant to aid the movement of the organs. Although there are three different forms of mesothelioma, 75 percent of all cases are pleural, originating in the chest cavity. The exposure to asbestos in large amounts, or over an extended period of time, is the sole recognized cause of pleural mesothelioma. The tissue cells become damaged and scarred by the fibers of asbestos leading to the production of cancerous cells. These cells divide rapidly, [...]

The First Imaging Library for Traumatic Brain Injury Announced

Cohen Veterans Bioscience and the American College of Radiology (ACR) is launching the first imaging library for traumatic brain injury (TBI). Clinical imaging tools will be developed to aid in the diagnosis and management of patients with TBI. In a press release published on the Cohen Veterans Bioscience website, 1.5 million Americans are affected by mild TBI annually. Despite the fact that most mild TBI’s display no outward signs of brain damage, these injuries lead to long-term cognitive, behavioral or physical issues in as much as 20 percent of cases. Neuroimaging, the method currently used by many hospitals is of little help in diagnosing TBI. According [...]

Recognizing the Signs of Brain Injury in Young Children

It is very common for a young child to receive a bump on the head while at play, alone or with other children. It is also common for a youngster to receive a traumatic brain injury. It has been shown in studies that, by the age of 15, one out of every five children will experience some form of brain injury. The group with the greatest risk of traumatic brain injury is children four years of age and younger. Every mother is familiar with the sound of a child bumping his or her head.

Federal Regulators Shelve Plans to Mandate Anti-Lock Brakes on Motorcycles

Traffic fatalities are rising again, following a long downward curve, driven in part by a high number of motorcycle deaths. Even though over 5000 bikers are dying on the nation’s roads annually, federal regulators have taken an ambiguous position requiring a safety measure that could save hundreds of lives annually. Since the 1990’s anti-lock braking systems (ABS) have been a standard feature on most passenger vehicles. For years, the same technology has been shown to be a valuable method of preventing motorcycle deaths. ABS technology works by preventing the wheels from locking up during hard braking or slippery braking conditions, permitting better control of the bike. [...]
