Motor vehicle accident injures bicyclist

Law enforcement authorities are still investigating a serious crash that badly hurt a cyclist on the morning of June 18.

Teen suffers brain injury in apparent drunk-driving accident

Five teenagers from out of state are recovering from a serious accident in Anaheim, according to local sources. California authorities responded to the two-vehicle accident that took place just before midnight on July 26, and have placed a 24-year-old man under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence. Two of the injured teenagers suffered a brain injury that could have long-term consequences for their health. 

Keep a lookout for a hidden brain injury after a crash

Many car accident victims in California are so relieved when they suffer no broken bones and see no open wounds or gushing blood that they refuse a trip to the hospital. This might be a mistake because the force of any collision can cause the brain to smash into the inside walls of the skull as the head is jostled back and forth. It can cause an invisible brain injury such as bruising or even bleeding on the brain.

Pedestrian Accident Victim Awarded 15 million from City of LA

John Leopold Victoria crossed Franklin Avenue on November 18, 2013, a day that would change his life forever. Even though he crossed a marked crosswalk, he was struck by a vehicle and was left incapacitated and unable to work due to the injuries he sustained. The accident left him with permanent brain damage after being put in a coma for months. His attorneys argued the signs warning drivers of the intersection were placed at the "wrong locations." Additionally, the area had a significant accident history that should have prompted prior action by the city. To compensate the injured Victoria, the city of Los Angeles awarded him 15 million dollars for damages because of the accident.

Is The PAC-12 Doing Enough To Prevent CTE?

With the latest results from the Boston University, many players, fans and football officials are wondering how these findings will impact how pros and children play alike. For those who have not read the study, Boston University researchers found 110 cases of CTE in the brains of 111 deceased football players. CTE is not necessarily caused by a single big hit or one concussion event. CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, is accrued over numerous blows to the head over a lifetime.
