What is post-traumatic stress disorder and how is it treated?

Traumatic events in life can lead to a variety of problems. One of the problems that can occur is post-traumatic stress disorder. This disorder is one that can affect anyone who was involved in an accident, even if they weren't injured in the accident. PTSD is a disorder that encompasses a variety of symptoms, and a multi-faceted treatment plan is usually required.

What are some symptoms associated with PTSD?

Truckers and mobile phone use

It is easy for a truck driver to become distracted. Long hours on the road can be boring, but that doesn't give a trucker an excuse to take his or her eyes off the road.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration shares a variety of information on truck driver safety. More specifically, details regarding what a trucker is and is not allowed to do with regard to mobile phone use.

Man suffers head injury when glass falls on him at Ohio factory

Factory workers face some unique hazards while working. For some of these workers, the danger of objects falling is one of those hazards. A recent accident in Mason, Ohio, shows just how bad accidents involving falling objects can be.

A worker at Pioneer Cladding & Glazing Systems was working when he was injured by a thick piece of glass. He was opening a crate that had multiple panes of glass. One of those panes of thick glass, which weighed well over 1,000 pounds, shifted forward and struck him in the head, knocked him over, and landed on him.

Are you familiar with the risks of truck driver fatigue?

Drivers of passenger vehicles don't often think about the mental state of those around them. Instead, they hope that everybody is in condition to drive their vehicle in a safe manner.

Truck drivers must take extra safety precautions at all times. Not only are they driving the largest vehicles on the road, but they are often behind the wheel for an extended period of time.

Infection after a broken bone is a serious medical issue

In one of our previous blog posts, we discussed how motorcycle accidents can lead to broken bones. What some people might not realize is that broken bones can lead to other problems. One of those problems in infection.

An infection that is caused by a fractured bone can be very serious. While it isn't common, these infections can often require lengthy treatment that might prove to be complex. That treatment can mean considerable medical bills and missed hours from work.

Are there many types of spinal cord injuries?

Just the same as any other body part, the spinal cord can be injured in a number of ways. It can be damaged by dislocation, fractures, compression, hyperflexion, or hyperextension.

Any spinal cord injury, regardless of the type, can cause the person serious harm, including paralysis.

Mild traumatic brain injuries are the most common grade

As we have discussed in the past, traumatic brain injuries are very serious injuries that can affect every aspect of the victim's life. Each year, approximately 1.5 million people in the United States survive a TBI. Of those, approximately 75 to 90 percent are mild TBIs. Sadly, around 50,000 people die in this country each year from a TBI.

Overwhelmingly, the most common reasons for TBIs are falls and motor vehicle accidents. Falls account for 28 percent of TBIs, while motor vehicle accidents account for 20 percent.
