Spinal and brain injuries can be life-changing events

When brain and spinal cord injuries take place, they often come together. A hit to the head, for instance, may result in a concussion as well as whiplash from the whipping motion of the skull. It's up to doctors to diagnose these conditions, but if you are diagnosed, knowing that you can file a legal claim against the person responsible can take some pressure off you.

How many people do spinal cord injuries affect each year?

At work, you're at risk of a traumatic brain injury no matter what industry you work in. If you drive, you could be in a car accident. If you're a factory worker, you could fall or get caught in machinery. There are many ways for these injuries to occur, which is why so many people suffer every year.

Traumatic brain injuries and substance abuse risk

After a traumatic brain injury, one additional issue that could be a concern is substance abuse. You may not have had any trouble with substance abuse in the past, but it's a concern for anyone who has a traumatic event in his or her life. This isn't often talked about as a side effect of traumatic brain injuries, but substance abuse does affect many people who are injured.

Workplace injuries can quickly become fatal, especially if they're one of the main four. The most common injuries on the job include falls, electrocutions, being caught in or between objects, and being hit by falling objects. Most workplaces try to avoid these safety risks with rigorous safety techniques and requirements. Sometimes they don't work, and accidents can happen. Other times, businesses ignore the need for safety, putting workers' lives at risk.
