The challenges associated with a motorcycle accident

If you enjoy riding a motorcycle, there's not much that will keep you off the road. Unfortunately, you know one thing to be true: not everybody likes sharing the road with motorcyclists. As you may have encountered in the past, some drivers don't care if you're involved in an accident or not.

To protect against serious injury, it's a good idea to wear as much protective gear as possible. This includes but is not limited to a helmet, leather pants, and the appropriate footwear.

For what reasons are workers’ compensation claims denied?

If you are injured on the job, you should never hesitate to receive medical attention. Also, once you are in the right frame of mind, you must consider the steps for making a workers' compensation claim. By doing so, you may be able to receive benefits while you are out of work recovering from your injury.

Unfortunately, there are times when a workers' compensation claim is denied. If this happens to you, it's important to know the reason. This is the only way to determine which steps to take next.

What is the possible long-term impact of traumatic brain injury?

There is nothing worse than the thought of a loved one suffering a serious injury. For example, a traumatic brain injury can change a person's life forever. While there is no way of knowing the exact impact of a traumatic brain injury, there are some long-term effects that are consistent with this type of injury. Of course, this depends on many factors, such as:

-- The severity of the injury.

Things to know about workers’ compensation

If you live in the state of Louisiana, you're probably aware of the fact that there are both federal and state laws meant to protect workers.

But even with these laws in place, you know one thing to be true: You could still be involved in an accident at some point.

What impact does weather have on the road and drivers?

As a driver, you hope that the skies are clear every time you hit the road. Of course, as somebody who lives in Louisiana, you know that this won't always be the case.

Instead, severe weather can and will pop up from time to time. There's nothing wrong with driving when weather conditions are less than ideal, but you need to know how this will impact the roads and the decisions you make.

What should you do if you are injured on the job?

When you arrive at work, you realize that you have a job to complete. You may also realize that you could be injured at some point.

Even when you do your best to remain safe, you never know if an accident could cause an injury or illness. For this reason, it's important that you know which steps to take should you be injured.

Were you injured in a drunk driving accident?

When a person uses drugs and/or alcohol and then gets behind the wheel of a car, they are taking a big risk. Not only could they be arrested and seriously punished for their action, but they could cause an accident that harms or kills another person.

As a responsible driver, you know that you should never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. While it's good to know that you're doing everything you should to remain safe, you can't assume that other drivers are doing the same.

Medical scans can't always predict brain injury ramifications

When you suffer a brain injury, the doctors may give you an MRI and/or a CT scan. These scans can prove helpful in showing the extent of the injury and the exact area of the brain that has been hurt.

This may be useful in predicting what impairments you could have or what the ramifications will be. However, experts warn that some of these skills are controlled by more than one area in the brain. These could include memory, information processing skills, language skills, and more.

Fire chief killed when speeding bus hits previous accident

There was an accident in the early morning on Interstate 10 in Louisiana, in the westbound lanes. Emergency units were contacted and responded to the scene. At least one fire truck was park in the highway and the firemen were helping those who had been involved in the wreck.

Then things took an even more devastating turn when a bus, speeding and coming up on the accident scene, failed to stop in time. The bus slammed into the firetruck, into multiple cars and into three firemen standing next to a guardrail. They were tossed helplessly over the rail, with a 30-40 foot drop below them. They landed in the water.

How to work around cognitive issues after a brain injury

After a serious brain injury, cognitive problems are common. Brain injuries are a bit tricky because they impact different people in different ways, but some common issues include:

-- Feeling restlessness.-- Often being quickly distracted.-- An inability to pay attention to long conversations.-- Issues finishing projects that have been started or doing multiple things at once.
