What medications are used to limit damage after a brain injury?

If you or a loved one suffer a brain injury, it is good to know that there are treatment options available. With the right approach by a qualified medical team, you have a better chance of recovering and avoiding long term complications.

While not always used, there are certain medications that can help limit secondary damage in the event of a brain injury. The medical staff treating the patient will consider if any of the following drugs should be administered:

The challenges of a truck accident claim

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute, approximately 10 percent of highway deaths occur in an accident involving a large truck.

As you drive a passenger vehicle on the highway, you will find yourself in close proximity to trucks at all times. Not only do you need to drive with caution, but you hope that these truckers will do the same.

Types of healthcare professionals that treat a brain injury

When a person suffers a brain injury, such as in a motor vehicle accident, there is nothing more important than seeking professional medical treatment. This is not the type of injury that will get better on its own. Instead, it is important for the appropriate medical professionals to treat the injury without delay.

Immediately following a brain injury, a person will be treated at a hospital. At this time, the goal of the staff is to stabilize the person and determine the extent of the damage. This gives them a clear idea of what to do next.

Medical malpractice: Types and challenges

When you put your trust in a medical professional, you assume you will be in good hands at all times. Unfortunately, these people make mistakes just like everybody else. The bad thing is that one mistake can lead to serious injury or even death.

There are many types of medical malpractice, including but not limited to:

What are the best ways to prevent distracted driving?

Only the person behind the wheel can truly prevent distracted driving. You have the ability to take your eyes off the road for a number of reasons, from using a cellphone to conversing with passengers to eating food. However, doing so is a big risk as it could cause an accident that injures or kills you and/or others on the road.

Authorities are taking steps to prevent distracted driving. For example, most states have laws in place that prohibit texting and driving. But even with this law, there is no guarantee that everybody will obey it.

What are some things you can do after a car accident?

A car accident is not something you see coming. You are fine one second, and the next you find your life turned upside down. It doesn't matter how careful you are, you can still be involved in a crash.

If you are involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, it is important that you take the appropriate steps. Here are five things you should do:

Intensive care treatment for a traumatic brain injury

When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury, such as in a motor vehicle accident, it is imperative that he or she receives immediate medical attention. The sooner the injury is addressed the better outlook the person has for a full recovery.

Once emergency medical treatment is provided, anybody with traumatic brain injury is likely to be moved to the hospital's inpatient intensive care unit. There are many reasons for this, including to achieve stability, to prevent additional trouble, and to manage the injuries.

The importance of a truck accident investigation

If you are injured in a truck accident, you need to focus all of your energy on your health and recovery. There is nothing more important than this. Even so, it is important to also understand your legal rights.

While you have your side of the story, the trucking company is likely to come up with another scenario of how the events unfolded. They do this in an attempt to minimize the amount of money they have to payout when everything is said and done.

Passenger injuries in a motor vehicle accident

Many people think about a motor vehicle accident and the first thing that comes to mind is the safety and well being of the driver. They believe that this is the only person who can be injured in such an accident. They overlook the fact that passengers could also be injured.

Generally speaking, a passenger is never responsible for causing an accident. Even so, this doesn't mean the person can't be injured.

Wrongful death lawsuit settled after 2 years

Approximately two years after the death of a 58-year-old man in a car accident, Marion's insurance provider has agreed to pay $4.15 million as a settlement with his family.

The victim's widow alleged in a lawsuit that the city failed to maintain one-way street signs, thus leading to her husband's accident and subsequent death.

I am very grateful Attorney Chester and his staff made my life easier. I'm not afraid to call them and get answers to all the questions that I've had, and no worries. Thank You.
