Rugby concussions pose legal worries

Workplace and highway accidents are not the only cause of catastrophic injuries in Ohio. Like professional football, college rugby has sparked concerns about concussions. Kenyon College in Gambier indefinitely suspended its men and women's rugby team as it reviews the program and head injury risks.

A look at the dangers of drowsy driving in Ohio

Most Ohio residents are aware of the various dangerous driving conditions that they may encounter whenever they enter the roads. Some dangerous driving conditions include construction zones, poorly maintained streets and unforeseen hazards like fallen trees, animals or poor weather conditions. However, some Ohioans may take for granted the hazards present by fellow drivers on the road.

Labor Day in Ohio means an increase of catastrophic accidents

Summer is almost over with Labor Day weekend nearly upon us. For many Americans, including hundreds of thousands from Cleveland, Ohio, area, this means a "last hurrah," and a weekend of barbeques and parties. Inevitably, it also means an increase of the consumption of alcohol, which often leads to catastrophic drunk driving accidents on the roads, including brain injuries.

How a brain injury can affect a person's life

Considered by many scientists and doctors to be the most important organ in the human body and among the most complex systems known to man, the brain is essential to human life. Although it is protected by a thick and sturdy skull, due to its location it is still vulnerable to injury, especially during accidents such as car and truck accidents, slip and falls and accidents in the workplace.

Spinal cord injuries can completely change the victim's life

The spinal cord is vital to one's daily life. Without it the brain's messages to the body will not get to the desired location. So, if the spinal cord is injured the messages will not be received by the various body parts and the function will not occur. For example, if the brain tells a leg to move, but the message does not get there it will not move. This is why these catastrophic injuries cause paralysis and prohibit people from controlling certain body parts.

How traumatic brain injuries can change one's life

People in Ohio suffer many different types of injuries throughout their lives. Most injuries provide some level of discomfort and can make doing some things more difficult than usual. However, most injuries heal at some point in time and the person is able to go back to their normal life. This is not always the situation though. Sometimes the person will suffer long-term or permanent catastrophic injuries that will completely change their lives.
