What is a Brain Concussion?
A concussion is a sudden, post-traumatic loss of consciousness. Usually, victims do not remember sustaining their injury. Classified as a mild brain injury, the effects of a concussion are short lived for most people, but in some cases may persist for several weeks. They can occur as a result of direct head injuries or the rapid acceleration and slowing down of head movements often experienced during accidents involving cars or trucks. Shock also occurs in people involved in sports, especially boxers, skiers and football. Concussions most often happen to children below 18 years old and people over 50. During a concussion, there is no damage to the nervous system and symptoms rarely leave a trace. A characteristic feature of this condition is temporary memory impairment, both in the period before the accident and after the injury. After a few days or even hours, victims often feel well enough to resume normal activities. The most common symptoms of a concussion include: * headaches and dizziness  * temporary loss of consciousness * problems with concentration * hypersensitivity to noise and light * nausea and vomiting * speech impairment * problems with maintaining balance * tiredness and slowing down of movements Although the symptoms of concussion are usually self-limiting, headaches and dizziness may persist for several months after the injury. A possible, but rare complication is subarachnoid hemorrhage, often characterized by a severe headache and paralysis. Longer-term affects include: * changes in sense of smell and taste * trouble sleeping * personality disorder * depression * learning difficulties Diagnosing a concussion is supported by a medical history of the injury, symptoms and neurological examination. The examination of choice is usually a computed tomography of the head, and in rare cases, magnetic resonance imaging to check for brain damage. It is necessary to check whether the injury has resulted in a brain hematoma, a complication characteristic of concussions. During diagnosis, doctors must also determine the patient's neurological function. This includes any neck injury or nose and ear hemorrhage. This type of bleeding, accompanied by bruising around the eyes, may indicate a fracture of the skull base. Each head injury with loss of consciousness is an indication for hospitalization. Treatment includes rest, avoiding exposure to the sun, and limiting the influence of external stimuli provided by a TV or computer. In case of a severe headache, the doctor may prescribe painkillers, usually paracetamol. It is very important to stay away from preparations that increase the risk of bleeding and impair blood clotting. In more than half of concussion cases, people recover to their original level of fitness. However, attention should still be paid to recurrent symptoms as they may suggest more serious complications and disorders than the concussion itself.
Why Falling Furniture is the Most Underrated Hazard to Children
Home furniture may seem harmless. Nevertheless, it is surprising how often children can discover hazardous places and objects. When children play, it is natural for them to want to reach, climb and pull on furniture when exploring their surroundings. There are no limits to a child’s creativity and curiosity. Getting to know their environment is an important part of childhood development, leading them to every corner of the room – but it’s not always for the better.  They often use cupboards and shelves as climbing walls. Despite their light weight, a child’s maneuvers can be enough to tip large pieces of furniture over. The center of gravity shifts beyond the base of the furniture and can topple over. Heavier appliances, such as grand bookshelves and television sets can cause serious injuries and even death. There has been an eerily steady number of wrongful death lawsuits reported by the CPSC, regarding unsafe falling furniture. The most effective way to prevent accidents is to fix all furniture to the wall, but it’s not always enough. Children are especially at risk because they are unaware of these dangers. When furniture falls over, they are not quick enough to react and avoid impact. Moreover, they are not strong enough to lift anything off themselves.  Furniture on lower levels may equally tip over. This is especially present when several drawers are open at the same time or when they are full - shifting the center of gravity off the base chests of drawers. The same effect occurs when a child climbs onto it. Therefore, furniture built both horizontally or vertically should probably be anchored to the wall. Another good idea is to place most of the weight in the lower chests, more so than the higher ones.  Most people don't anticipate furniture overturning, since such accidents are rarely reported in the news. Heavy lobbying from furniture-making companies, such as IKEA, make it so that most of the blame is placed on the consumer rather than the manufacturer. Nevertheless, wrongful death suits continue to be filed by personal injury law firms, most of which understand the tactics used by insurance companies. It makes it that much more important to try to prevent falling furniture accidents, but also to have the proper information to take action if you or your child becomes a victim to it. 
The Ins and Outs of Workplace Helmets
Protective helmets are used in many workplaces. It is difficult to imagine working in a mine, on a construction site, in a warehouse or at heights without the protection of a helmet. Contrary to first glance, helmet differentiations can be extremely extensive. It is important to know what material to use, the types of harnesses in helmets and how to check the expiration date of a helmet (yes, helmets have an expiration date). When choosing a protective helmet, workers must first consider their work conditions and what properties may be necessary. Are they working at high temperatures? If so, they must remember about ventilation. Antistatic helmets, or those with high resistance to splashes of molten metal might be necessary in workplaces like foundries. Materials The most common materials from which the helmet's shell is made are HDPE and ABS. 1. HDPE material helmets are heavy and thick. They manifest very good shock absorption during impact. These types of helmets are often used in agriculture, construction, electric utility, sand blasting, welding, chemical, mining, nuclear and oil refining industries. Construction accident legal cases in particular, dive heavily into the proper use of these helmets and their role in safeguarding further injuries.  2. ABS material provides high impact resistance. It is more expensive than HDPE. ABS helmets' walls are thinner, which makes them lightweight. It also has image values like making them look shinier. They are mostly used recreationally for activities such as bicycling, skiing and snowboarding, skateboarding, and as general safety-use helmets. 3. Anti-electrostatic property helmets are intended for employees working in explosion hazard zones - tanker drivers (ADR), miners.  The Body of the Helmet The inner part of the helmet that directly touches the head is the harness. It is responsible for the shock absorption when it hits the shell. The task of the truss is among others, keeping the helmet on the head. It is worth knowing that the distance between the shell and the top of the truss should be between one to two inches.  The main belt is an element of the truss that allows the helmet to be stabilized on the head, thanks to the possibility of adjusting the circumference. Most often, adjustment is possible with a belt, buckle or knob. Very often there is a sweatband in the front part of the strap, which minimizes the pressure of the helmet on the head and ensures maximum sweat absorption. The chin strap is usually already included in the helmet but can also be purchased separately. Its role is to prevent the protective helmet from falling off the head when the employee tilts his head down. The strap can be detached at any time. It can be attached to the truss with 2-, 3- or 4- points. The rule of thumb is that the more attachment points, the more firmly the helmet will fit on your head. Chin straps should not cause abrasions, limit and restrict movements, or move loosely during work. Expiration Each helmet shell is marked with its production date in the form of an arrow indicating the month and year. Most often, the validity of the helmet is between two to five years. However, remember to always read the attached instruction manual. It may happen that the expiry date of the helmet will be counted from the first use of the helmet. Nevertheless, any helmet is vulnerable to damage and should be inspected before usage. 
Why Diving Head-First is a Major Cause of Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord is an indispensable element of strength and communication within the human body. It quickly flows information to the brain, controlling our body temperature and levels of pain.  Diving headfirst into shallow water is tantamount to causing paralysis. Statistics show that every year such jumps end in disability for one in every 400 people. Roughly half of diving injuries to the spine end in damage to the spinal cord. Injuries to the spinal cord occur most often in people between 15 and 35 years of age, despite numerous educational campaigns. The consequences of a spinal cord injury depend on the site of the injury. It is influenced by the height from which the jump is made, body weight, and the depth of the reservoir. The closer the injury is to the head, the worse it can get. Conversely, if there is an injury below the chest, only the legs may be paralyzed. With any luck, during an unfortunate jump, only the core will shake, which results in paralysis lasting several seconds. Jumping into the water can also injure the spine without damaging the spinal cord. The spine consists of a column of bones called vertebrae. The spinal cord is a long, fragile structure contained in the spinal canal that runs through the center of the spine, and is protected by the vertebrae. The aftermath of spine damage is slightly milder than spinal injuries, although still very severe. The patient experiences uncomfortable sensations but maintains the ability to move their limbs. Well-provided first aid is extremely important in this case, otherwise a broken spine may eventually damage the spinal cord. The most serious spinal cord injuries are to the upper parts of the neck. If the phrenic nerve is paralyzed, it causes the patient to suffocate. Their survival depends on a quick rescue operation with intubation. Other unfortunate effects of a jump-gone-wrong can be paraplegia and tetraplegia.  Paraplegia causes paresis of the lower limbs, while maintaining the efficiency of the upper limbs. Disturbance in urination is a common characteristic. The patient must work hard to regain fitness, although it rarely returns to the level before the accident. Tetraplegia occurs when the spine is damaged at high levels of the cervical spine. The patient cannot eat on his own and has problems with swallowing.  Returning to normal life after an accident is difficult and sometimes impossible. A broken spine causes significant pain in the area around it. To relieve the discomfort, patients must wear a supportive corset for several months to a year. It is often necessary to stiffen the spine surgically, and even insert an implant. Rehabilitation comes after, the aim of which is to minimize the effects of an injury and to prevent degenerative changes. Nevertheless, such a condition is prone to welcome further injuries due to the imbalance of the spine and the distribution of overload of other shafts and discs.
Common NYC Jobs That Are More Dangerous Than You Think
New York City is a hub full of employment opportunities. The sheer density of people in a relatively small area, such as Manhattan, is a natural job creator. However, along comes a certain danger – work accidents. Police officers and firefighters are often regarded as the brave faces amid dangerous work environments, but they aren’t the only ones. There are some jobs in New York City that disproportionately lead to injury and death among workers.  Here are a few of the most common causes of workplace injuries and the jobs that see the highest rate of injuries in New York City.    * Construction work is by far the most dangerous profession in New York City, accounting for over a quarter of all fatalities, even though it makes up just 6% of the workforce. Exposure to heights, heavy machinery, and power tools pose a risk of injury and death.   * Taxis, limousines, and other transit drivers must deal with the usual dangers on the road, including accidents and crashes. They must also consider the possibilities of assault and robbery, sometimes by their passengers. The dangers are often intensified when working at night due to alcohol.   * Subway workers: The backbone of New York City's transportation system requires a great deal of inspection and maintenance, which can mean putting workers in danger of electrocution.   * Sanitation workers face hazards daily working with large, heavy machinery and performing physically demanding jobs. Impatient drivers who also try to pass garbage trucks and inadvertently hit workers also pose a risk.   * Couriers on any mode of transportation navigate the chaotic streets to deliver documents while trying to avoid the dangers posed by unpredictable drivers or simply the unexpected opening of a car door. The most common injuries linked with some of the above-mentioned professions include, but are not limited to:   * Overexertion injuries relate to pushing, pulling, lifting, carrying, throwing, etc. They are often associated with pulling a muscle or pulling your back out.   * Slipping or tripping injuries occur due to wet floors or materials unexpectedly obstructing walkways. Falling from heights, such as from a ladder, or being struck by a falling object, whether from a shelf in an office or tools on a construction site, are another leading cause of on-the-job injuries.
Why Do Automobiles Reach Speeds They Can’t Legally Hit?
As of 2022, the fastest road-legal car, the SSC Tuatara, maxes out at 282.9 mph. The fastest posted speed limit in the country is on Texas State Highway 130 at 85 mph, over a 40-mile stretch. Which means the car can’t legally reach half of its maximum speed capability on America’s fastest road.  Speeding is a factor in over a quarter of all driving fatalities in the US. That amounts to 25 deaths per day in some years, piling up hundreds of lawsuits related to speeding accidents. Most modern cars are equipped with electronic stability control, blind spot detection, and driver assistance. Missing, however, is a speed limiter that electronically limits a car’s maximum speed. This is an option for some makers and models, but far from a legal requirement. Only Volvo, historically credited with the 3-point safety belt, has capped its cars’ speed at 112 mpg. Unfortunately, most speeding accidents aren’t recorded anywhere near that high anyways.  Mechanically, a stronger and faster engine has its arguments. For one, it can merge into highways safer and pass trucks smoother at a fast pace. Economically, a fast engine can save on fuel mileage, if it keeps a consistent pace. Still, 41 million speeding tickets issued for Americans every year suggests an appetite for simply going faster.  The US government has long been hesitant to interfere with the public’s access to fast cars, despite the countless campaigns against speeding. This stems from a mix of public discord on current speed limits and the vast influence the auto industry has on lawmakers, through lobbying and campaign contributions. After all, auto sales do make up a whopping 3.5% of the country’s GDP. In turn, there is no incentive for automakers to build safer speed-limiting vehicles.  In defiance of government inaction, safety advocates are focused on designing roads to deter people from pushing limits. With speeding more likely on wider roads, one idea is to reduce lane widths to 10 feet in cities. This narrows a driver’s tunnel of vision, causing them to slow down. There are also high-visibility crosswalks, street trees, and offset curb extensions called chicanes. The European Union recently ruled that all cars sold after May 2022 would have speed limiters. The technology, the Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), isn’t mechanically enforced, but it will warn drivers when they creep over the limit. Nevertheless, safety is growing as a top concern for auto consumers, which will push speeding into a main topic of discussion.
Urban Riding: How to Drive Safely on a Motorcycle in the City
Motorcycles make great alternatives for driving around the city. They are cheaper than cars, use less gas, are smaller and more agile, easier to park, and they generally help us get to places faster. Although the advantages are abundant, motorcycles also have plenty of cons. They have less security than cars and poor protection under bad weather. Below are a series of tips to keep in mind when riding a motorcycle around the city. Attire In both the hottest and coldest seasons, it is essential to wear a jacket. They should be especially designed for wind-heavy conditions, which includes protection on the shoulders, arms, and back. Pants should be made of sanity or even Kevlar, which can be worn on a day-to-day basis—without even getting on a bike. Gloves protect fingers and knuckles from bumps and abrasion. The pain in the event of a fall can be indescribable and the ground can feel like sandpaper without proper hand protection. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to wear light and reflective clothing (or brighter than black) so that others can see you, especially at night. Motor Mindset Motorcycles are relatively invisible to other road users. Drivers are often easily distracted and do not pay attention to the two wheelers around them. In response, bikers must use anticipatory driving. This is to control what’s ahead of them and give them sufficient time to react to the actions of other drivers. For example, do not always take a car’s turn signal for granted. Wait for the vehicle to turn before crossing or turning yourself. This also goes for bikers themselves when gesturing a turn or movement. Surprise tailgating and sudden high-speeds can cause car drivers to make fatal split-second decisions.  Braking A very practical trick is to circulate with two fingers placed continuously on the two brake levers. located on the handlebars of scooters. In the case of gear motorcycles, it’s possible to ride with your fingers on the front brake and with your right foot ready to activate the rear brake. This will reduce the braking distance. And before doing any kind of emergency braking, you have to balance the bike by first applying the rear brake - then the front, and the rest progressively. If done too hard from the beginning, the wheels will lock.  The Conditions The only contact surface bikers have with respect to the ground is a few centimeters off the tire. For this reason, the importance of grip is fundamental. It’s vital to avoid engagement on pedestrian crossings and slippery painted lines (which are especially dangerous after rainfall). Avoid making sudden changes of direction since the ground can be dirty and the wheels tend to skid. Potholes can also effectively destabilize a motorcycle. If a passenger is involved, motorcycles become heavier and less agile. Braking and acceleration will be slower and the bike will not respond momentarily. Minor passengers can be carried as long as the driver is the legal guardian. In states like New York, there is no minimum age for motorcycle passengers.  Follow the Law Comply with traffic regulations. Do not go faster than you should as excessive speed is one of the main causes of motorcycle accidents. Don’t ride with your feet dangling. It is a fatal mistake that we see every day that can cause amputations if the foot or leg gets stuck. When driving, it is necessary to have 100% of your senses, so do not talk on the phone or use any type of hearing device that impairs your ability to drive safely. In short, the most important tip is to get home alive and ride with common sense. It’s not easy to operate a two-wheeler in a concrete jungle, but it’s doable. So, drive calm, safe and with your head on your shoulders because you only have one life.

What Causes New York’s High Number of Car Accidents?
Given a substantial population with lots of traffic city-wide, New York is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. In response, traffic safety laws are taken seriously and constantly amended to align with modern technology and demographics. From the introduction of rideshare travel to the Covid-19 pandemic, New York has seen an upward trend in vehicle safety.  The 20-year stretch from 1990-2010 had seen a considerable decline in accident-related deaths. In 1990, 46,800 accident victims lost their lives within a year of their accident. By 2010, that number had fallen almost 30%, to 32,885. But usually, the tragedy inflicted by a traffic collision does not take a year. More than 95% of victims who are fatally injured will die within 30 days of an accident.  Over the last 10 years, there wasn’t a steady trend, but the following data was collected: * More than 55% of all fatal crashes involved "road excursions," in which a vehicle crosses median markers, lane lines, or leaves the roadway entirely. One in four fatal crashes occurred at an intersection. Queens had the most accidents relating to road excursions. They currently have the second highest amount of bike lanes, after Manhattan.  According to the US Department of Transportation, nearly half of all traffic accidents in the country occur at intersections. * About 31% of all fatal car accidents involve driver intoxication. Brookhaven in Long Island holds the lead for the county with the highest number of DUI’s per year.  * Staten Island reported to have the least number of car accidents, overall and per capita. Nevertheless compensation from legal suits exist all boroughs, including the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.  * Driver inattention contributed to more crashes than any other human factor. Nearly one in four accidents involved distraction. The second main factor was tailgating; the third was the failure to yield the right of way. * In non-fatal accidents, drivers were more likely to be injured than anyone else. Anyone who lives, works, or visits New York regularly is well aware of traffic congestion in the city. Traffic accidents in the city are part of everyday life.
