Facility for spinal cord injury patients explains complications

Those who suffer a sudden and traumatic accident often have their lives turned upside forever. The long-term prognosis for a spinal cord injury can vary based on the location and type of injury suffered. One facility in California that helps these patients regain some control in their lives also warns about some of the health complications that can occur.

An injury to the spine can lead to a serious and permanent disability, but with qualified and skilled care, it's possible to regain some semblance of a normal life. However, in the course of working to achieve a level of recovery, there can be complications that need to be treated quickly or measures taken to prevent certain problems from occurring. One of the most serious can be pressure sores, where the skin has weakened in one area through constant pressure. This can lead to tissue death, and once this occurs, the body is more vulnerable to a serious infection that can ultimately result in amputation or even death.

High-tech dashboard features could lead to more car accidents

Many advances in technology make life better and less dangerous for many California residents. However, due to the increased use of cell phones and other fancy high-tech gadgets, drivers face more distractions while behind the wheel than ever before. In fact, some of this technology, such as dashboard features, could do more harm than good and lead to a higher chance of car accidents.

A recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety examined this issue and found that the features now standard in many vehicles, such as built-in GPS systems and DVD players, significantly increase the chance of distraction. Distracted driving is one of the leading threats to motorist safety. This study found that voice-controlled or touch-operated navigation systems can distract motorists for up to 40 seconds at a time.

Channel Island Facility is Providing Hope For Brain Injuries

Based in Channel Islands, 60 miles north of Los Angeles, Pure Recovery and its patients have seen some incredible rehabilitation from brain injuries. 

1 killed in auto accident involving 2 big rigs

A man has been killed in a wreck that involved two tractor-trailers. Ironically, neither truck driver is believed to have been the cause of the California auto accident. In fact, it all started one day recently when a sedan clipped one of the big rigs.

The driver of the black sedan was reported to have clipped a tractor-trailer, causing the driver of the rig to lose control of his steering. At that point, the truck was stuck in the middle of the highway. When the vehicles came to a stop, both drivers were okay, according to witnesses.

School's In Session: Drive Safely Around Buses

Schools have begun across the United States and students everywhere are taking buses to school. LAUSD buses and metro buses offer reliable transportation for students across LA County and just as families readjust to the school year, so must drivers adjust to the return of school buses. Here are some tips to drive safer around buses.

Car accidents: Multiple people dead following crash in Riverside

Three people have died and a third person was injured following a tragic crash on the 60 Freeway, according to police. California officials worked with Riverside firefighters, as they often do in the case of serious car accidents, to both aid the wounded and determine how the crash took place. So far, California Highway Patrol has asked anyone who witnessed the crash to come forward. 

According to the accident report, the crash happened around 3:30 a.m. the morning of Sept. 9. An eastbound driver lost control of a vehicle, which slammed into the divide at the center of the highway. A man driving another vehicle was unable to stop in time and crashed into the disabled car, throwing the driver into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, he only suffered minor injuries. 

Music Artist Involved in Severe Car Accident

On September 5th, Pop artist Aaron Carter was in a car accident, totaling his M4 BMW. Immediately following the accident, Aaron relayed this thoughts and emotions over Twitter. He tweeted, "I never meant to get into an accident as a severe as this. I've ran into people before and honestly nothing compares to what happened today." Aaron later clarified that accidents happen and everybody involved is okay.

Allegedly drunk driver causes fatal California car accident

Without exception, all fatal traffic crashes are devastating. Perhaps few accidents are more upsetting, though, than a wreck caused by a drunk driver. To say it's distressing is an understatement when lives are lost solely due to another driver's selfish decision to drink alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Just such a fatal drunk driving accident seems to have occurred recently in Riverside County. The multi-vehicle crash claimed one life and injured three other individuals at around 10:45 on a Wednesday morning. The driver believed responsible has since been arrested by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of driving while under the influence, according to police reports.

Don't let a spinal cord injury disable your finances as well

No matter who you are or what you are currently doing, every California resident has dreams and goals in life. Unfortunately, unexpected tragedies can derail even the most carefully planned life. What do you do if an accident has left you with a spinal cord injury and at least temporarily unable to provide for your family's needs?

These types of devastating injuries often happen without warning for which no amount of planning or diligence can prevent. The aftermath can leave a victim with a shattered world with no idea how to move forward from that point. If you or a loved one has suffered such a terrible injury, then the future may look uncertain for many reasons.

Brain injury can cause a multitude of changes in victims' lives

For the average California resident, life is a series of ups and downs that all come with the normal challenges of life. However, for those who have experienced the life-altering effects of a brain injury, events that most would perceive as normal can become almost insurmountable obstacles. If that injury was the result of an accident caused by another, then there may also be feelings of frustration and sorrow for what was lost.

One survivor has outlined some of the side effects that have impacted daily life. While many people may believe that a head injury is limiting and can be recovered from, the reality is that life may be forever changed for these victims. Along with the initial injury, there may be long-term changes in every aspect of a person's life. Everything from cognitive function to emotional stability may be adversely affected.
