How can you deal with chronic pain?

After your injury, you find yourself dealing with chronic pain. Some days are better than others, but it's always there. It becomes a constant presence in your life. That injury -- whether it came from a car accident, a workplace accident or something else entirely -- just will not fully heal. The pain will not end.

At first, you feel optimistic. You get medical care. You look into treatment options. You figure that it will just take time. You are willing to put in the work.

Workers accused of stealing hundreds of thousands from elder

Elder abuse isn't just physical — it can also be financial. Here is a horrible story about workers who stole over $600,000 from a resident. The woman had no living relatives and was diagnosed with dementia, leaving her unable to take care of her own affairs.

The 97-year-old woman needed help with her finances and often turned to Symphony Residences of Lincoln Park for assistance. She had been living there since 2010, so she trusted the facility.

What are acute injuries?

Personal injuries come in two main forms: acute and overuse. If you have been hurt by another person, you've suffered an acute injury.

An acute injury refers to one that is caused by a sudden event, whereas the overuse injury happens over time due to wearing down the muscles, ligaments and other parts of the body.

Understanding commercial truck “black boxes”

Many people in the general public still do not know that commercial trucks contain devices that record several kinds of information useful after a serious accident, much like airplanes contain "black boxes" that record flight data. Similarly, manufacturers build these electronic control modules, or ECMs, not only to record data about the truck and the driver's habits, they are also built to withstand a serious collision and preserve the data it recorded.

After any kind of serious truck accident, it is always wise to seek out the ECM data from the truck as soon as you possibly can. It may provide important insight into the causes of the accident, which strengthens your personal injury claim or property damage claim and helps ensure that you receive the full, fair compensation that you deserve for your losses and suffering.

Group ride bike injuries spur lawsuit

The Spectrum Ride is a weekly bicycle race that takes place in the Bay Area in California. It’s a competitive, open road race where injuries are known to happen. A new lawsuit is challenging rider responsibility. Namely, an injured rider recently filed suit against other riders, claiming that they caused his accident and his subsequent injuries. Similar to a car accident, he’s essentially claiming another driver is responsible for what happened.

Hidden injuries from a car accident may be deadly

People sometimes forget just how unnatural it is for human bodies to travel at high speeds, only to be painfully reminded by a car accident. Even an accident between two vehicles with high safety ratings may still produce serious injuries or death, and the victims may not even realize they have injuries until hours or days later.

If you recently experienced a car accident, have you gone to see a doctor? Many drivers who experience car accidents do not realize that they may have delayed pain injuries that do not cause pain but are still causing damage. Even if you think that you got away from the accident without any injuries, it is important to undergo a professional medical examination as soon as you can. If you have organ damage or internal bleeding from the accident, this examination may save your life.

The 3 main types of distracted driving

It is all too easy to gloss over distracted driving and assume it just means texting and driving. While texting is absolutely one of the most distracting -- and common -- activities that people engage in on the road, it is certainly not the only type of distraction.

In fact, researchers note that there are three different ways that drivers get distracted behind the wheel. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describe these three main types as:

  • Cognitive distractions: These are anything that take your mind away from the task at hand.
  • Physical distractions: These are activities that make you physically stop driving the car, or at least stop putting your full physical effort into it.
  • Visual distractions: These are distractions that cause you to look away from the road.
