What is the impact of traumatic brain injuries in children?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injuries are the leading cause of death and disability in children and young people. In children and young people aged zero to 19, 62,000 children suffer brain injuries requiring hospitalization annually as a result of motor vehicle accidents and other causes. In addition, 564,000 children are seen and released in emergency rooms annually for traumatic brain injuries.

Resources are available for victims of drunk driving accidents

Drunk drivers can cause untold amounts of damage to victims and their families harmed in a drunk driving accident. Unfortunately, drunk driving is a leading cause of car accidents and car accident-related injuries and fatalities. In Oklahoma, 30 percent of traffic fatalities are related to drunk driving. Each drunk driving accident has the potential to unexpectedly up-end the lives of victims and their families and can have permanent and lasting consequences for the futures of victims and their families.

Oklahoma train accident kills 4 and injures one

A train accident in an Oklahoma community recently killed 4 people and injured one other, all passengers in a car. The female driver of the car was travelling east with her passengers during the early afternoon hours when a train travelling northbound crashed into the passenger vehicle they were riding in. The woman driving the car and three children were killed in the train accident. A fourth child was also injured in the train accident and was air lifted to the hospital.

How to better understand distracted driving

Car accidents are among the top two causes of injury and death. Each year since 1994, between greater than 32,000 victims and 43,500 victims have been killed in car accidents. Motorcyclists, pedestrians and others are also included in the number of fatalities caused in motor vehicle accidents. In addition to deaths, victims of car accidents also suffer life-altering injuries in car accidents. There were a total of 2.2 million vehicle accident injuries in 2010.
