Brain injuries found at higher rates in prison populations

Any traumatic injury to the body has the potential to be life altering. When the brain is involved, the effects may not always be immediately obvious, but they can be just as serious. A recent study on traumatic brain injuries conducted in Ontario has revealed a surprising result regarding their long-term implications.  

Children who suffer brain injuries may have life-long troubles

Every parent is concerned for the safety of his or her child. They do everything they can to protect them from danger, and help them when they've suffered any harm. Unfortunately, children who suffer brain injuries may carry the effects well into adulthood, even beyond the lives of their parents. A recent study in Ontario reveals some of the possible long-term outcomes of concussions in children.

Dental anesthesia causes brain injuries in separate incidents

Many people in Ontario opt for heavy sedation while having dental work done. When they do so, they are placing enormous trust in their practitioner. While unconscious, a patient cannot ask for help and must rely on the professionals to ensure their well-being. Unfortunately, sometimes things can go catastrophically wrong, such as in the cases of two young girls who ended up with brain injuries after visiting their dentists.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents cause emotional and physical trauma

Even the most cautious of people probably don't think too much about the risks involved in simply driving a car. Unfortunately, the risks are real, and they are compounded by motorists who insist on driving distracted, impaired or otherwise dangerously. Fatal motor vehicle accidents, in particular, are terrible occurrences that leave the living to try and carry on without the ones they love.

More than half of fatal motor vehicle accidents involve alcohol

Though educational efforts continue, many motorists still make the decision to drive while impaired. In fact, MADD Canada reports that 58 percent of fatal motor vehicle accidents result from drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol. One of the most recent accidents claimed the life of an Ontario woman who was simply obeying the rules of the road.

2 fatal motor vehicle accidents at intersection 2 years apart

Perhaps there are some places that are just unlucky, or maybe there's something about them that lend themselves to misfortune. Either way, an intersection in southwestern Ontario has now been the scene of two similar fatal motor vehicle accidents in the past two years. The latest injured three people and claimed the life of an elderly woman.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents devastating for families involved

The sudden and unexpected death of a loved one can tear a piece out of a family. Sadly, that is exactly what fatal motor vehicle accidents can do. The family of one Ontario man will need to figure how to get by without him following a tragic accident on a major highway.
