Why should motorcyclists understand concussion symptoms?

As a motorcyclist, you never think about the possibility of being involved in an accident. Even though this may not enter your mind often, you know it is a possibility. After all, other drivers could make a decision that leads to an accident.

You can suffer many injuries in a motorcycle accident. This is why it is important to wear protective gear at all times, regardless of how far of a trip you are taking. For most bikers, this starts with a high quality helmet.

Truckers, passenger vehicle drivers can help reduce accidents

Although there is no way to completely eliminate truck accidents, there are steps truckers can take to help avoid this type of trouble in the future.

Every year, there are hundreds of thousands of commercial vehicle accidents. In some cases, everybody walks away uninjured. Other accidents, however, cause serious injury or death.

Rehabilitation after a brain injury takes a team of professionals

We have often discussed how a brain injury can affect every aspect of a person's life. When you think about the effects a brain injury can cause throughout the body, it is easy to understand that a person with a brain injury might have a large team of medical professionals to care for them. The fact of the matter is that the services these medical professionals provide aren't inexpensive.

Some people who have a brain injury might have to see a physical therapist to help with a variety of issues. Physical therapists can help the person to overcome issues that affect motor skills and other problems, if possible. Balance, posture, coordination and strength are some aspects of a person's movements that the physical therapist might look at.

Types of treatment for paralysis

If a person is paralyzed, it does not mean that his or her life is over. They may have to adjust their way of living, but there are ways they can remain productive and enjoy life. This is particularly true in today's day and age, as more and more strategies for paralysis treatment are tested.

The way one person is treated for paralysis may not be the same as the next person. This is based largely on the cause of the injury, as well as the long-term prognosis.

What are open head injuries?

Opening a carton of eggs to see if one is broken is a habit many people have. If you see a crack in the shell or notice some of the egg whites oozing out, you likely don't buy that carton. That cracked egg is similar to what happens when a person suffers an open head injury, except blood may be oozing out instead of egg whites.

Emergency room treatment of a spinal cord injury

If a person suffers a spinal cord injury, such as in a motor vehicle accident, it is essential that he or she receives immediate care.

Immediate attention at the scene of the accident can be the difference between minimizing the long-term impact and permanent injury. Once a person is stabilized at the scene, he or she will then be transported to a local emergency room. It is there that treatment continues.

What should motorcyclists know about road rash?

Motorcycle riders have a unique chance of injury when they are involved in an accident. Since these riders are merely balancing on top of the motorcycle, the motorcyclists are often thrown from the motorcycle when an accident occurs. This can lead to the biker sliding across the pavement, which can lead to road rash.

Can drowsy driving cause Ohio car accidents?

When you get behind the wheel of an automobile, you need to be completely alert at all times. It only takes one mistake to cause an accident. It only takes one second to doze off and put yourself, as well as others, at risk.

There is no denying the fact that drowsy driving can cause a motor vehicle accident. Many people associate this with truckers, but anybody who is operating a vehicle could be drowsy to the point of increasing the chance of causing an accident.

Ohio motorcycle accidents can injure various parts of the body

Thoughts of head injuries are likely to come up when someone hears about a motorcycle accident. Some of our Ohio readers might be shocked to learn that head injuries aren't the most common injuries in non-fatal motorcycle accidents. Approximately 30 percent of non-fatal motorcycle accident result in an injury to the lower limbs. Head and neck injuries, which account for around 22 percent of non-fatal motorcycle injuries, rank second. That is followed by chest, shoulder, and back injuries, arm and hand injuries, and hip and pelvis injuries.

While the number of lower limb injuries is greater than neck and head injuries, it is important to note that the injuries to the neck and head are often more serious. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers a ranking of the most dangerous locations for injuries in a motorcycle accident. These are (in order of most dangerous to least dangerous):
