Bleeding in the brain: Causes and treatment

Bleeding in the brain, also known as a brain hemorrhage, is a potentially fatal injury that requires immediate medical attention.

One of the primary concerns with treating bleeding in the brain is doing so in a timely manner. Unfortunately, since symptoms can come on fast, many people with this injury don't have enough time to receive the treatment necessary to prevent serious harm or death.

Never ignore abdominal pain after a traffic accident

Any traffic accident can cause serious, potentially deadly injuries, even those that seem relatively minor at the time. Among other things, this is because victims of traffic accidents often suffer injuries that they cannot feel at first, giving them a false sense of security that often causes larger complications later.

Delayed-onset injuries come in many forms and varying degrees of severity, but few are more serious than delayed-onset injuries to the abdomen. If you recently experienced a traffic accident and begin feeling pain in your abdomen, you should rush to an emergency care provider immediately. Otherwise, you risk putting your life in danger.

Do these things when driving in rainy conditions

If you live in New York, you know that the spring season is one of the most enjoyable times of the year. You also know that heavy rain can move into the area, often without notice.

In the event that you're behind the wheel when the rain begins to pour, it's imperative to change your approach. If you don't, you increase the likelihood of being part of an accident — and that's not something you want to do).

Will you commute on your bike this spring?

When the spring weather finally arrives, it goes without saying that more and more people will begin to venture outdoors. For many, this means one thing: jumping on their bicycles and riding as often as possible.

If you're the type of person who enjoys commuting to and from work on your bicycle, it's important to understand what you need to do from a safety perspective.

At the moment, you might be experiencing some beautiful fall weather. The days are not too hot or too cold, the leaves are changing color, and the weekends are just about perfect.

When weather conditions turn bad, it is important to take some extra precautions when you are on the road. To stay safe this winter, follow the tips below for driving on icy roads.

What happens when insurance doesn't cover your car crash losses?

You pay for New York motor vehicle insurance, and you do so with the expectation that if you get into an accident, you won't have to worry about the financial issues that result. You depend on your insurance to cover the damage to your vehicle, as well as any accident-related medical expenses that your health insurance won't cover, especially if you have a high deductible plan.

Under New York law, everyone who operates a vehicle on public roads should carry a liability insurance policy. Failing to have insurance can result in fines, tickets and even revocation of the registration of the vehicle in question. Unfortunately, it's important to know that even if you have an active insurance policy, it won't always cover your losses after a motor vehicle crash.

A Growing Fight Over Medical Malpractice Compensation

Prodded on by lobbyists for doctors and doctors' insurers, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill that would cap noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases to $250,000. This comes at a time when some states have declared caps on noneconomic damages to be unconstitutional altogether. Noneconomic damages include costs that are not directly related to medical treatment for an injury, and can include payments for pain and suffering and loss of companionship.

The measure now goes to the Senate, where passage will likely be more difficult (The measure passed in the house with a vote of 218-210). So far there have been no public hearings on the legislation.
