Did you know that falls and car accidents are some of the leading causes of TBI each year? Just take a look at the statistics: Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of TBI deaths, with rates being highest for adults aged 20-24. Falls also result in the greatest number of TBI visits in an emergency room, with 62,334 hospitalizations. Falls are actually the leading cause of non-deadly TBIs. These rates are highest for children who fall between 0-4 and adults who are 75 and older. In America, close to 1.7 million people sustain a TBI every year. About 52,000 will succumb to these injuries and pass away, and 275,000 will be hospitalized.

Accidents happen on any job. If one is employed as a contractor working in the construction industry, these injuries are more likely to occur. Contractors face the hazards associated with building, creating, and working with heavy machinery and equipment, along with high heights, that often result in sustaining injuries on the job. In cases like these, it’s important to have an attorney who can help. The market in the construction industry is already fickle as it is with, over 40% of the workforce in that industry losing their jobs between 2006 and 2011. Rather than dealing with injuries and a lawsuit on one’s own, it’s important to use attorneys who are skilled in employment law. Read on to learn why every contractor needs a lawyer before stepping foot in the courtroom.
If Injured, It’s
Worldwide, 1.2 million people die in car accidents every year. Every year, 3 million people are injured in car accidents on U.S. roads. There are approximately 6 million car accidents in the United States every year. Many of these car accidents could have been prevented. They are the result of drunk, distracted, or negligent drivers.
Drunk driving, distracted driving, and aggressive driving are the top three causes of fatal car accidents in the United States. Every day, drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and aggressive drivers put the lives of others at risk, through erratic behavior or lack of attention on the road.
The statistics surrounding drunk driving are sta
Driving is something that a lot of people in the country enjoy or take part in on a daily basis. Having your own car can be extremely convenient, especially if you have to commute to and from work every day and also need to make short trips frequently for job-related purposes or for social calls. Owning a car means that you do not have to depend on public transport and can create your own schedules according to your own convenience. Driving is also an activity that brings with it certain very important responsibilities. Due to the fact that driving can be dangerous for drivers who do not have the full amount of focus and concentration available to them, driving can sometimes result in accidents.
Being a victim of an accident is never a pleasant experience. In addition to the property
Each day, people drive drunk almost 300,000 times but fewer than 4,000 are arrested. This statistic alone belies one of the central (seeming) problems that people face on the road today: the under the influence driver who is not cognizant of his or her surroundings, level of speed, lack of motor control, and lack of coordination.
Drunk driving (and sometimes to a larger extent–distracted driving) represent a serious problem in today’s society where carelessness, whether intentional or not, is resulting in a serious amount of car accidents, injuries, and even deaths. A driver who is under the influence or distracted will often be considered negligent in the eyes of the court.
This negligence often amounts to a great deal of fines, possibly jail time, monetary losses if another person’s car was a
Over the past few years, law enforcement has increased its usage of body and dashboard cameras. In 2000, for example, just 11% of the vehicles operated by the state police and highway patrol had in-car video cameras. By March 2015, roughly 33% of the United States’ 18,000 police departments had already begun to use them. Currently, however, estimates indicate that 72% of all state patrol vehicles have these systems in place.
There have been notable benefits to the use of body cameras f
