Long-term rehab for brain injury victims may help recovery

It is no surprise to most Pennsylvanians that the road to recovery for those who suffer from brain injuries can be a long and complicated one. The cognitive and functional recovery after such an injury requires intensive therapy and months or years of rehabilitation. Unfortunately, many people cannot afford long-term rehabilitation, so they stop treatment early. A recent study by researchers at University of California, San Diego, shows that this may not be the best idea.

Gas blast victims' families file wrongful death lawsuit

For the families of Pennsylvanian accident victims, moving on with their lives can feel impossible. One Pennsylvania man knows exactly how that feels. In February 2011, a natural gas explosion in Allentown killed five people and destroyed multiple homes in his neighborhood. The man was at work at the time of the accident. The man's 16-year-old daughter, 4-month-old grandson and 69-year-old mother were all killed in the tragedy. The couple of next door to the man also lost their lives. Five families lost their homes, including the man.

Alzheimer's linked to traumatic brain injury

There is a great deal of evidence showing long-term results of traumatic brain injuries. The list of serious consequences seems to keep growing. A recent study published in the journal Neurology shows that those who suffer brain trauma may be more likely to suffer from Alzheimer's disease in the future. By the year 2050, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention expects that 14 million people will be living with Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's begins with mild memory loss and can eventually prevent people from living normal lives.

Gathering evidence in Pennsylvania aviation accidents

Air travel has made life easier for millions of people all across the country. Pittsburgh residents rely on airplanes to get them safely from one place to another more quickly than any other form of transportation. While flying is generally safe, plane accidents can unfortunately occur, whether it be a small private plane or a large commercial aircraft. If you suffer an injury or lose a loved one in a plane crash, you may be able to file a lawsuit against those responsible for your suffering.
