Soft tissue damage and its common symptoms

Drivers in Connecticut who were involved in an accident have been suffering from aches and pains ever since will want to know more about soft tissue damage because this may be to blame. Soft tissue refers to the muscles, tendons and ligaments. When these non-bony parts of the body are strained, sprained or torn through any sudden, uncontrolled movement, they can lead to chronic pain and swelling. In serious cases, these injuries lead to bleeding and the loss of motor functions in the limbs.

Distracted drivers can cause car accidents

If Connecticut residents think about it, technology advances in the last few decades are mind-boggling. Younger residents probably can't envision a time without cell phones and texting. However, these advancements aren't always a blessing, and sometimes the use of these devices can be hazardous to one's health.

Many car accidents stem from common causes

Drivers in Connecticut always have good reason to be concerned about an auto accident when taking to the roadways. A large number of car crashes happen throughout the United States each year, with numbers exceeding 60 million. More than that, the number of accidents has grown year over year in 2015 and 2016. Because car accidents can cause significant bodily injury or even death, researchers have dedicated themselves to understanding the causes of auto accidents in order to lower the number of accidents and cut down on driving behavior that can lead to preventable injuries.

Pokémon Go and the rise in traffic accidents

According to a study conducted by two Purdue University professors, the smartphone-based game Pokémon Go has contributed to an increase in traffic accidents. While their data was culled from the car crash reports made in another state, their conclusions can be applied to Connecticut and the rest of the U.S.

Multiple factors lead to an annual holiday rise in death rates

As people in Connecticut prepare for the fall and winter holidays, medical professionals prepare for the rise in death rates that always accompanies the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. There are several reasons that death rates climb in the fall and remain high through the winter, including car accidents that begin with heavy holiday traffic.

The car accident aftermath: remain calm and help others

When you get into a car accident, it is common to wonder what you are supposed to do next. The moments immediately after the wreck are adrenaline-fueled and mentally-jarring, so it is not surprising when accident victims are a bit stunned for a few minutes after bumper meets bumper.
