A woman died at the scene of a car accident in the Reno area after another vehicle hit her in a "t-bone" fashion as she was attempting to make a left turn. The woman was 73 years old.
A previous post on this blog talked about the most common types of spinal cord injuries. The common theme is that no matter the cause, these sorts of injuries can leave a Reno, Nevada resident unable to walk or, in the worst cases, even move his or her arms.
As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, even relatively minor spinal cord injuries have serious and lifelong consequences for their victims. An injury to the spinal cord will generally mean a Reno, Nevada resident will need medical care and therapy, as well as help covering their lost income if they are no longer able to work.
There is nothing quite like the feeling that one gets when riding their motorcycle. The wind in your hair, the freedom of the open road - it's all very poetic. However, motorcyclists can be affected by a less-than-poetic event if they are involved in a motorcycle accident. Often, other drivers are to blame either partially or completely for the motorcycle accident and the resulting injuries.
