Early protections required for spinal cord injuries

At the time of a spinal cord injury, the medical professionals who treat you have to ensure that you are stabilized before they move on to other aspects of your care. This begins at the scene of the accident because the emergency responders have to be sure that your spine is immobilized, that you are breathing and that you have an adequate blood pressure.

Pedestrian accidents are resolved in different ways

Pedestrians who are struck by vehicles can suffer grave injuries, even at slower speeds. There are many factors that determine what type of injuries will occur. The size of the vehicle, the speed, the location of impact and the health of the pedestrian might all play a part in the outcome. One thing that is present in all these cases is that the pedestrian will likely need medical care.

Financial devastation can come after being hit by a car

Being struck by a car can lead to very serious injuries. When you are walking or riding a bike, you don't have the protection of the body and frame of a car. This means that your body will take the full brunt of the impact. Plus, you may have the impact of hitting the ground when you fall. We recognize that you might be facing a long road to recovery.

Pedestrian alert: Driver behavior is unpredictable by crosswalks

Most pedestrians know that they need to be careful when they cross the street. They usually do a good job of making sure they only cross in designated areas and look both ways first. Still, sometimes accidents occur in crosswalks.

Pedestrians must ensure they remain safe this winter

As the winter weather approaches, pedestrians must make sure they remember some basic safety tips as they walk outside. Employing these may keep them from being involved in an accident. Pedestrian accidents during the winter can be particularly troublesome due to the cold weather, which might initially mask some injuries.

Children walking, school buses and driving safety in Connecticut

With the back-to-school season here, all drivers on the road need to pay extra attention to what is going on around them. This is especially true in the hours before and after school because these are times when the children are going to be walking around more, sometimes as they are heading to school or the bus stop.

Pedestrian safety has to be a priority in the summer months

The summer months are here and people are out fully enjoying the lovely weather. While this is done in fun, there are some very serious dangers that come with this time of year. One of these is that pedestrians are out in full force, which can mean that they are at risk of being hit by a vehicle.

Devastation often comes when pedestrians are hit by vehicles

With the lovely summer weather here, everyone can get out and enjoy being outside. Some people will opt to walk around and others might bike about the city. In all of these cases, you are putting your safety into the hands of the drivers who are around you. When they don't take safety seriously, you might end up injured.
