Bone fracture repair for your child's injury

Like most North Carolina parents, the worst thing you can imagine is to be in an accident where your child suffers injuries. You may be especially emotional if the accident occurred due to someone else's negligence or reckless behavior. Of course, you are grateful that your child's injuries were not worse, but if he or she suffered a bone fracture, there may be difficult times ahead.

A simple broken bone may heal easily with a cast and some rest. Your child's youthful bones are likely to repair quickly under these circumstances, and after a week or so, the cast may do little to hinder your child from his or her normal activities. However, if the break was more serious, surgery may be necessary.

Have you suffered a life-changing TBI?

Few people go through life expecting to suffer a life-changing injury. Unfortunately, this type of scenario could befall anyone, and you may have recently found yourself in this situation. One day, you may have gotten into your vehicle for a normal commute, and later you found yourself in the hospital, possibly with little or no memory of the car accident.

Sadly, car accidents can cause any number of life-changing injuries. In your case, your brain suffered serious trauma, and now you must contend with the many changes your life will now face, including no longer having certain abilities that you once did.

Is legal action appropriate after the death of your loved one?

Is your North Carolina family grieving the loss of a loved one from a serious accident? It can be devastating, both emotionally and financially, to learn that your family member died as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of another person. If this is the case for you, there may be legal options available to you.

You may have grounds to pursue financial compensation through a wrongful death claim. Of course, this cannot reverse what your family experienced, but it can help you address certain financial needs you are dealing with as a result of the fatal accident. If you think this could be an option for you and your loved ones, it can prove beneficial to move forward immediately to protect your legal rights and options.

Auto accidents are the no. 1 cause of spinal cord injuries

Other than a traumatic brain injury, the type of injury that most people fear from a car accident is a spinal cord injury. Bones, cuts and lacerations can heal, often within weeks. However, when you suffer an injury to your spinal cord, you may face losing your ability to return to the life you had prior to the accident, for months or possibly forever.

While many people do go on to live normal lives after paralysis, few things remain the same. If you or a loved one suffer a spinal cord injury in an accident caused by someone else, you may want to seek support in pursuing the compensation you deserve and will need to help with current and future medical and care needs.

The problem of distracted driving and the threat to all motorists

North Carolina readers know that distracted driving is a serious threat to the health and safety of every person on the road. Despite the fact that most people are well aware of the dangers of this behavior, many drivers still engage in distracting behaviors while behind the wheel.

If the negligent actions of a distracted driver caused you injury, you have the right to seek appropriate compensation through a personal injury claim. Distracted driving is inexcusable, and one way you can fight back against this behavior is to hold liable drivers accountable when they cause you harm.

Did your child suffer a serious injury on a school playground?

Kids need to blow off steam and built-up energy during the day. How many parents have joked that if they could bottle the energy their young children have, they could make millions? All joking aside, sitting in a classroom all day without releasing that extra energy makes it difficult to concentrate and do well, which is why recess is so important at certain ages.

When you send your child off to school, you expect the teachers and other staff members to keep him or her safe. What you, and many North Carolina parents, may not realize is that school playgrounds can be dangerous. You may expect trips and falls, bumps on the head or other minor injuries to occur, but what if your child suffers a serious injury on the school playground?

Staying safe when sharing the road with large trucks

Driving on the roads with cars and small trucks is one thing. But driving next to huge semi trucks and buses is quite another.

These extra-large vehicles have long stopping distances, huge blind spots, and limited maneuverability. This means that when you’re driving next to them, you need to put yourself in charge of safety. Here are some tips for doing just that.
