Looking at low-speed traffic accidents

When people think about serious car accidents that result in injuries, they may have visions of traffic crashes that involve vehicles traveling at high speeds. However, it is important to bear in mind that even traffic accidents which take place at low speeds can leave those involved with injuries. Moreover, these crashes can bring up other consequences, such as mental trauma and property damage. If you were involved in a low-speed traffic collision that took place because of another driver’s negligent behavior, you should carefully review any possible consequences resulting from the wreck and consider your legal options, if necessary.

What are the signs of a brain injury?

If you were involved in an accident in New Jersey that resulted in trauma to your head, keep an eye out for symptoms of a traumatic brain injury. The symptoms of TBI typically do not appear for days or even weeks following the incident, and they may continue to develop for years afterward. Brainline details what signs to look for, especially during the first 24 hours after an accident.  

Aggressive driving can be deadly

Navigating the busy New Jersey roadways can be challenging, especially during rush hour. Whether you are trying to get to work on time or you are late for an important appointment, traversing in traffic can certainly cause some to lose their temper. In fact, approximately 80 percent of American admit to losing their temper while driving at least once during the past year. Furthermore, males are more likely to experience road rage then women. The problem lies in the fact that more than 56% of deadly car accidents involved aggressive driving behaviors, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. When people drive aggressively, they put others lives in danger. Motorists should be on the lookout for the signs of road rage when driving, as they may be able to prevent a fatal accident from occurring.

The difference between conservatorships and guardianships

When you have a parent, spouse or other loved one who is aging and experiencing a decline in his or her mental or physical health, you may have cause to establish a conservatorship, a guardianship or both over this individual. While conservatorships and guardianships are somewhat similar in that they both require that someone step in and assume decision-making power over someone else, they are distinctly different in some important areas. Understanding how they contrast can help you figure out whether a conservatorship, a guardianship or both may be necessary.

Brain injuries and rehabilitation

being involved in an accident, you will want to learn about the various stages of rehabilitation that may help your loved one recover as much independence and functionality as they are able to. Depending on the nature of the accident and injury, it may not be immediately possible to fully know to what level a person can be rehabilitated after a traumatic brain injury. Time may be needed before a final determination can be made.
