New research shows that even first head injury changes the brain | Personal Injury Attorneys in Philadelphia | Scoop.it

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, February 4, 2014 5:12 PM

As medical researchers study more and more about traumatic brain injury, they are coming up with findings that are startling.  This latest study shows that even the first time one takes a major blow to the head can cause microbleeding, which alters the brain structure and can lead to long term consequences like memory loss.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, January 16, 2014 12:59 PM

The number of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. has been climbing in recent years.  No one knows the exact reason and it can be any number of factors such as increased volume of motor vehicle and foot traffic especially in urban areas, distracted driving, distracted walking or other issues.  The bottom line is that the U.S. DOT is stating that they intend to make a concerted effort to understand the problem better and to take measures to decrease the incidents of persons being struck and seriously injured or killed on America's streets.
