What you need to know about head-on collisions

Whether someone is driving around curves or traveling on one of Virginia's straightest stretches of highway, there is the possibility of a head-on collision. According to Roadtrip America, these accidents don't happen as often as rear-end collisions and t-bones, but when they do happen, everyone in both vehicles faces a high risk of fatal injuries.

Some basics of Virginia medical malpractice

When a healthcare provider makes a mistake, the effects on your life can be serious. If the provider commits medical malpractice, the patient may have grounds for a lawsuit to recover for the considerable damages that often ensue in such cases.

When surgical sponges are left behind

Patients in Virginia might imagine that anything used during the surgery is removed and accounted for before the site is closed and stitched. However, for thousands of people in the U.S. every year, this is not the case, CNN reports. Roughly a dozen patients each day leave the operating room with a surgical sponge or instrument still inside them. 

Motorcycle crashes, TBIs and other injuries

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury, you may have many questions about where to go from here. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to bodily harm while driving because they are more exposed and less protected as someone would be in a car wearing a seat belt. We all know that wearing a helmet can dramatically reduce your risk of brain injury during an accident, but sometimes a head injury can still occur.

What happens inside the skull after a motor vehicle accident

Anyone in a motor vehicle accident in Virginia, whether a car occupant, a motorcycle rider or even a pedestrian or cyclist, may sustain a traumatic brain injury. In fact, TBIs can occur even if there is no blow to the head. According to MedicineNet, even if a person never loses consciousness, the trauma of a car accident can cause initially minor issues that could turn into life-threatening injuries.

Mild to severe road rash after a motorcycle crash

Any areas of a motorcycle rider's skin that are not protected may sustain road rash in a Virginia accident. RideApart.com notes that wearing a riding suit or jacket and pants with built-in armor is the best way to keep skin from coming into contact with the road as the rider slides or rolls across it. Gloves with palm sliders are especially important, as people naturally try to catch themselves in a fall with the palms of their hands.
