Traumatic brain injury symptoms

A person in Ohio who has sustained a traumatic brain injury may endure a range of different symptoms, depending on how severe the injury was. The most severe brain injuries can result in altered states of consciousness including coma, vegetative state and brain death. When someone is in a coma, they may emerge from the coma and recover consciousness or enter a vegetative state that could become permanent.

Truck accident claims and settlements

When a truck accident takes place in Ohio, the truck driver may be criminally charged for negligence if they were at fault. Regardless of whether or not the truck driver faces criminal charges, the injured victim can file a separate personal injury claim in a civil court. A plaintiff in a personal injury claim typically asks for financial compensation for their damages from the liable parties.

Ohio residents and new traumatic brain injury treatments

Ohio brain injury patients may benefit from new treatment options that are delivered intravenously rather than through injection directly into the brain. There are currently no approved medications to reduce damage to the brain after a traumatic injury, and existing treatments require causing further trauma to the brain tissue. Amino acids delivered through intravenous means would make it possible to provide a safer alternative to traditional injections.

Trucking accidents and autonomous driving technology

Ohio motorists may in the future benefit from a new collision mitigation system that is designed to help truck drivers avoid rear-end collisions. When a vehicle stops suddenly, large 18-wheeler trucks do not always have the time to avoid a collision. New technology alerts drivers to an impending collision and, if the driver does not respond in time, the technology takes over control of the steering system in an attempt to avoid the other vehicle.

Staying safe by an Ohio pool

If a homeowner owns a pool, it is his or her responsibility to make sure that it is in safe working condition throughout the year. Homeowners are generally responsible for the safety of all invited guests at all times even when a pool may not be in use. To protect both adults and children on the property, there are some basic pool safety steps that can be taken.
