Surviving Brain Injuries

Surviving Brain Injuries

Surviving Brain Injuries – Being in a car accident is a traumatic event and often severely affects the lives of those involved. Injuries sustained in a crash can take weeks, months, and even years to recover from fully and the recovery process can change the way you live your life. With some injuries, survivors may be left with symptoms that never truly go away. Such injuries can dramatically affect a person’s quality of life and can mean permanent changes for both them and their families. One of the most common types of accident trauma that can leave victims with lasting symptoms is traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Distracted Driving Statistics

Distracted Driving Statistics

Distracted Driving Statistics – It’s a constant temptation, and it can seem harmless. Just checking one text on the way to work or the grocery store usually won’t cause an accident. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checking that text will take your eyes off of the road for an average of five seconds. If you are traveling at a mere 55 miles per hour, you will have traveled the entire distance of a football field before your eyes are back on the road. Driving without looking at the road is like driving blind, and distracted drivers cause hundreds of thousands of accidents in the United States every year.

Because they lack any sort of protection from the impact, pedestrians are often left with severe and even fatal injuries in the event of a crash.
