How well would you recover from a brain injury?

You may think that many brain injuries occur on the field of play. We often hear about concussions related to football injuries, for example.

However, the majority, including serious traumatic brain injuries, result from falls and motor vehicle crashes. If you should suffer TBI, what can you expect in terms of rehabilitation and recovery?

CDC study sheds light on the most common motorcycle injuries

Fall is a wonderful time to enjoy a motorcycle ride in our beautiful state of Colorado. However, if you have a close encounter with a vehicle, you are much more vulnerable to severe injury than the motorist.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention undertook an extensive study of motorcycle injuries. Here are how groups of injured body parts ranked.

5 ways a car insurance company can exhibit bad faith

Let us say you suffered both a concussion and a broken shoulder when a speeding driver t-boned your car in an intersection.

You must file for insurance compensation while still receiving medical treatment, but you have heard that insurers can be difficult. Some act in bad faith relative to claims. Here are five ways that may happen.

Watch for slower speed limits around Denver

The metro area has been hard on bicyclists this summer. After a recent spike in the number of cycling fatalities, government officials have begun to think of ways to keep riders safe. One strategy is lowering speed limits on some roads. If you regularly drive in Cherry Creek or near the airport, you may need to decrease your vehicle’s speed to comply with the new limits. 

Sometimes, keeping your speed in check can be difficult. After all, you have places to go to. Still, you do not want to injure yourself, a cyclist or anyone else in a collision. Here are some suggestions for keeping your car’s speed under control: 

Distracted drivers, rear-end collisions and what to do next

According to data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear-end collisions accounted for about a third of all traffic accidents reported in 2014. They still happen daily and in large numbers nationwide.

If you become the victim of such a crash, would you know what steps to take afterward?

A helmet may be important even after a motorcycle crash

As summer turns to fall, you are likely looking forward to riding your motorcycle in cooler weather. While you may have excellent riding skills, you may not be able to avoid a collision with a motorist forever. If you do have an accident, your riding helmet may save your life. 

In Colorado, most motorcyclists do not have a legal obligation to put on a helmet before hitting the open road. As such, provided you are at least 18, you may choose to forego head protection. While failing to wear a helmet may put your life in jeopardy, it may also harm your chances of pursuing compensation from whoever caused the accident. 

How to stay safe in the dedicated bicycle lane

Denver is the perfect place for anyone who loves cycling. After all, is anything better than getting some exercise while seeing Mount Evans rise above the city’s skyline on a clear autumn day? While bicycling may be one of your treasured pastimes, it is not without risk. As you likely know, a bicycle accident may leave you with serious injuries. 

The summer has not exactly been kind to metro-area riders. In fact, after a recent spate of rider fatalities, cycling enthusiasts have decided to fight back by taking to local roadways in protest. Meanwhile, 9News has tried to alert both motorists and riders of the importance of dedicated bicycle lanes. While riding in a bike lane is often safer than trying to maneuver through Denver’s crowded streets, dedicated lanes are not without their risks.
