Boxer who suffered severe brain injury making improvements

Anyone who has suffered a brain injury or has a loved one who has can find some encouragement in the news about boxer Adonis Stevenson. The one-time light heavyweight world champion was knocked out in the 11th round of a match on Dec. 1 in Quebec City, where he was defending his title. He had been ahead until his opponent, Oleksandr Gvozdyk, landed eight punches in a row, including two hard right punches.

Can you prevent an elderly loved one from driving?

Even elderly people who have no need to drive often enjoy the freedom it gives them. Recently, 97-year-old Prince Philip made headlines after he was involved in a crash that injured two women in another vehicle as he drove near London. The prince, who was uninjured even though his Land Rover overturned, reportedly told authorities that the sun had blinded him momentarily.

Working through common effects of a brain injury can be difficult

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) come with a variety of impacts. You aren't going to find out exactly what you will have to deal with right away when the accident occurs. Instead, it might take time for things to settle down enough for you to determine what effects you will have from the injury long term.

Do you know what signs could point to an impaired driver?

No one wants to think that he or she is near a drunk driver while traveling the roads. Unfortunately, a substantial number of people get behind the wheel after drinking, and though not all of them cause accidents, they still put you and others on the road at risk. While making it home safely and never knowing a driver around you was impaired may be a best-case scenario, you may find yourself in other situations where you suspect a driver may be under the influence of alcohol or otherwise impaired.

Colorado winters can be especially dangerous for travelers

If you're a winter-sport enthusiast, you may have settled in Colorado because of its claim to fame for some of the best ski slopes in the nation. In addition to skiing, you may be one of the thousands who enjoy snow-tubing, dog-sled rides or one of many other winter activities that are highly popular in this state. While there is definitely no shortage of outdoor winter fun, navigating icy roadways can be a real drag.  

Indoor pools carry unique dangers

Coloradoans rely on indoor swimming pools to get their laps in during the many months of the year when outdoor swimming isn't possible. All pools carry some potential dangers if they aren't properly maintained or if property managers and swimmers don't take basic safety precautions. However, indoor pools carry dangers that aren't present in outdoor ones.

Know how to handle a slip-and-fall accident claim

When the weather is snowy, businesses must ensure that they aren't allowing the areas just inside the interior doors to become too wet. This can be difficult because the bottoms of shoes and boots can grab onto snow, which can track it indoors. People coming in and going out could slip and fall on the wet conditions.

Be ready if someone crashes into you this winter

Now that the cold weather has made its way to our area, it is important for all drivers to have their vehicles ready in case of an accident. The last thing that you need to worry about is being stranded in the cold while injured after a collision caused by another driver. We know that you are hoping to make it through the winter without having any incidents on the road. Unfortunately, you can't control how other drivers operate their vehicles.
