Spinal cord injury is a complicated injury that is often elusive and difficult for medical professionals to cure or treat. That being said, spinal cord injury often requires special medical attention and long-term rehabilitation. Thousands are injured every year in a way that is classified as SCI or spinal cord injury. U.S. Veterans suffering a spinal cord injury for 2 years or longer were the focus of a study that aimed at determining cost associated with such injury.
Many highways have barriers between the opposing lanes of traffic to prevent cross-over crashes. This is because cross-over crashes, or car accidents where a vehicle crosses into the opposing lane of traffic, can cause serious injuries or even fatalities. This was the case recently when a driver in Nevada, now charged with DUI, crossed over with his vehicle into the opposing lane of traffic. The resulting crash caused injuries and a fatality to victims in another vehicle.
Many drivers are unaware of the dangers that exist on Reno roads today. While normally aware and careful, some drivers may not grasp the potential for serious injury on Reno roads. The reality is that there are plenty of opportunities for a driver or a passenger to become seriously injured in a car accident. If a car accident causes a person to suffer a spinal cord injury, the injured person or their family may be wondering about how a potentially negligent driver could have affected the situation.
Motorcycles are dangerous. While this may be true, it doesn't mean they shouldn't be ridden and enjoyed by the thousands that call themselves motorcyclists. The sad fact is, however, motorcyclists are much more susceptible to injury than the average motor-vehicle driver. According to the Insurance Information Institute, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely than motor-vehicle drivers to die in a crash and five times for likely to be injured.
After you or a loved one have been involved in an incident where personal injury has resulted, you may be unsure of what to do next. Bodily injury resulting from a Reno car accident can be severe, and even if the injuries are described as moderate, it can have a huge impact on the injured person's life.
