Because of an accident, they may be unable to work, be permanently disabled or their injuries may involve long-term recuperation.

Pediatric Spinal Cord Injuries

Pediatric Spinal Cord Injuries

Pediatric Spinal Cord Injuries. Whenever someone sustains a spinal cord injury, it is always a serious issue. The spinal cord is a delicate collection of nerves that run from the bottom of the brain (the brainstem) down through the back and into the pelvis. Along the way, the nerves exit the spinal cord and power every cell in the body. Unfortunately, these nerves are also prone to injury. Like other nerve injuries, trauma to the spinal cord can lead to permanent complications. These injuries also occur in children. According to some statistics that have been put together by the American Spinal Injury Association:

  • Close to one out of every five spinal cord injuries occur in children under the age of 18.

The Case

New Laws Favor Federal Control Over Driverless Vehicle Safety

New Laws Favor Federal Control Over Driverless Vehicle Safety

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento self-driving car accident lawyer. Some lawmakers are concerned that if bills currently in the House of Representatives and Senate were to pass, states would be prevented from instituting regulations that are aimed at industry safety standards. If states are unable to institute their own rules, the driverless car industry would be able to move forward seamlessly. Some key legislators have weighed in on this new approach.

Accident Information

 Thigh Compartment Syndrome with a Femur Fracture

 Thigh Compartment Syndrome with a Femur Fracture

I’m Ed Smith, a Personal Injury Lawyer in Sacramento. When someone sustains a severe injury, it is essential to know what to do next. Seeking professional medical care as quickly as possible is always a good idea because it can minimize the chances of a severe complication developing. One of the difficulties that can grow with the diagnosis of a femur fracture is called compartment syndrome. For those who don’t know, the femur is the thick leg bone that makes up the thigh. As with any severe injury, swelling at the site of the bone fracture can occur. When this swelling happens around the leg, it can start to choke off the blood, oxygen, and nutrients that the tissue needs to survive. Some of the symptoms of compartment syndrome that people should watch out for include:

  • Increased pressure and feeling of tightness around the injury.
