New blood test for identifying traumatic brain injury

Many Colorado residents have experienced a traumatic brain injury, whether in an automobile collision or through participation in an athletic event. A recent study has shown that a specific blood test is beneficial for determining the effects of a TBI, which could aid in the patient's subsequent treatment. This was done by comparing the results of the blood tests of traumatically brain injured patients with their results from traditional measures, such as CT scans and MRIs. The study was published in a respected journal that features articles on clinical and laboratory advances related to traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

Dangerous days to be on the road in Colorado

Driving when there is a lot of traffic on the road or during Colorado's notorious weather changes can be dangerous, but there are also certain days of the year where the chances of getting into a crash increase. These are often holidays, but one of the most dangerous driving days in the year is actually the Monday after the annual switch to daylight saving time, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Settlements in Colorado product liability actions

Each year, many people are seriously injured by products that they used in a reasonable manner. In some cases, they may choose to file product liability civil lawsuits against those responsible for placing the defective products on the market. In the event that a settlement offer is made, people should be careful before just accepting it.

Study suggests brain injuries impact women longer than men

Women in Colorado struggling to recover from traumatic brain injuries, even mild ones, have a greater chance of ending up with long-term memory problems than men with similar injuries. The director of the Brain Injury Research Center at UCLA said the 10 to 20 percent of brain injury victims whose symptoms persist for years tend to be female.
