Motorcycle helmet cameras can provide critical evidence

While the following story doesn't deal with a motorcycle accident, it does detail an increasingly popular trend that all motorcyclists should follow. This is about motorcycle helmets that have video cameras on them or built into them, allowing the motorcyclist to review his or her ride and, most importantly, capture critical information about any accident that may involve them or, in this particular case, involve vehicles near them.

Musical helmet trend may be fashionable, but is it safe?

A sportswriter coined the phrase, "It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game." Apparently of equal merit to some in sports is the wisdom of actor Fernando Lamas who said, "It is better to look good than to feel good." The question, however, is just how deep one should dive in honor of that last pearl.

There are different kinds of brain injury. Many are disabling

One noted advocacy site makes the observation that, "Brain injury is not an event or an outcome." The alternative view offered by the Brain Injury Association of America is that a brain injury is essentially a symptom of a hard-to-diagnose, little known disease, the ravages of which can leave victims and their families facing quality-of-life challenges for a lifetime.

Plan the claim after a loved one's debilitating brain injury

When a brain injury causes your loved one's life to be altered permanently, you might decide that you are going to try to seek compensation for the accident. Sadly, there are some accidents that lead to brain injuries that cause permanent disabilities. These situations are hard on the victim, but they are also hard on the family members who are left to pick up the pieces.

Some important limits to ski helmet safety

There's widespread agreement that wearing a helmet when you're skiing or snowboarding is a wise precaution. Even adults who don't wear them generally ensure that their kids have them on, whether a resort requires them or not. According to the National Ski Areas Association, almost 90 percent of kids wore a helmet during the 2015-16 ski season.

Study: Equestrian accidents leading cause of adult brain injury

Most of the media attention on sports-related concussions and traumatic brain injuries has focused on the dangers of contact sports such as football and soccer. However, a recent study published in the journal Neurological Focus found that equestrian accidents are actually the most common cause of TBIs for adults.

Brain changes can result from non-concussion injuries

We've heard and read a good deal in recent years about the long-term impact of repeated concussions on the brains of professional football players. However, it's not necessary to suffer a concussion to experience serious changes to the brain. Experts say that the delicate neurons in the brain can be damaged by repeated head injuries, even if none of these injuries rise to the level of a concussion.
