Types of traumatic brain injuries caused by car accidents

Many people are injured or killed on Ohio's busy roads each year. Car accidents, motorcycle accidents and trucking accidents can all lead to catastrophic injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are among the most dangerous types of injuries, accounting for 1.7 million related deaths in America each year. Although brain injuries may be caused by other occurrences, such as sports-related injuries, falls, violence, explosions, medical malpractice and workplace accidents, car accidents remain the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries.

Car accident victims may recover even if they are at fault

Ohio is an at-fault insurance state, meaning that the person who caused the accident is responsible for paying the costs of losses and damages to the other driver. Those injured in a car accident may choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party to recover their medical expenses and other damages. In Ohio, they may do so even if they were partially at fault.

Steps to take following a car accident

Car accidents can be traumatizing. Victims should be prepared to handle the situation appropriately to ensure that they have a strong personal injury case moving forward. First, an ambulance should be called for anyone who is injured, and the injured party should remain on the scene unless emergency medical care is necessary. The vehicle should be moved out of oncoming traffic and the police should be contacted so that an official police report may be filed in cases where there is significant property damage, serious bodily injury or death.

Government report suggests reducing legal blood-alcohol limit

About one-third of all traffic fatalities since 1982 are attributable to alcohol-impaired driving, according to a new report released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The report suggests that the number of traffic fatalities may be reduced by changing the legal blood alcohol concentration percentage from .08 percent to .05 percent. Some Ohioans agree with the report's suggestion, while others express concerns.
