Mild brain injuries caused by car accidents

If a Rhode Island driver becomes involved in a car accident, there is a chance that the person could suffer a mild brain injury. However, the term "mild" only refers to the initial physical injury that the brain suffers; the wide range of symptoms and challenges that someone who suffered a mild brain injury can range from temporary dizziness to permanent changes in mood and behavior.

Distracted driving

Distracted driving can make the roads of Rhode Island less safe. Attempting to accomplish any task that diverts attention away from the road while behind the wheel may be classified as distracted driving. Talking on a cellphone, checking email or reading while driving may increase the likelihood of an accident. When distracted drivers cause dangerous accidents, a settlement in court may be possible.

New riders and motorcycle safety

Motorcycle riders in Rhode Island know that safety is important. Exercising caution when riding can significantly reduce the chances of a motorcycle accident. New riders can derive great benefits from following a few safety tips, and learning good safety habits early can lead to a lifetime of safe riding.

Study examines the cost of treatment for traumatic brain injury

When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury during a car accident, it is sometimes difficult to estimate the total cost of their recovery. Rhode Island drivers may be interested in a study that looks at rehospitalization, a prominent cost on the road to recovery.
