Summertime: a perfect storm of crash-producing factors

When compared with winter months, there are seemingly a number of reasons why the sweet spot of summer should be far safer for drivers in Indiana and nationally.

After all, weather during the June-August timeframe is optimal. Visibility in better. Whiteouts and drifting snow are figuratively and literally in the rear-view mirror. The roads are definitely not icy. Sunshine rather than darkness is the norm.

Are vaping's potential benefits offset by risky batteries?

Do you vape? According to government statistics, the use of electronic cigarettes is on the rise. As of 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported at least 9 million U.S. adults puff on e-cigarettes and teenagers are a target growth market. By some scientific measures, these battery-powered devices hold potential benefit for hooked smokers. But experts say, as with cigarettes, if you haven't started, don't start.

Setting aside the question of the health effects of vaping, which the government admits remains unanswered, there is perhaps a more pressing reason for users to be wary. Reports are on the rise of serious, even fatal, injury caused by exploding vape power sources – lithium-ion batteries.

Spinal cord research in spotlight at Purdue University

A spinal cord injury is a complex and serious ailment. Often testing - and sometimes exceeding - the bounds of medical knowledge and known treatments. The established personal injury firm of Tabor Law in Indianapolis says, "Each and every spinal cord injury requires a great deal of medical attention."

As is true with other areas in the medical realm, developments do occur in the field of SCI research, although they are seldom announced with great fanfare and promises. There is good reason for caution and exhaustive testing: Many once-touted therapies and rehabilitative protocols have fallen by the wayside. Progress has been steady, but arguably slow and often uneven.

The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys has recognized the exceptional performance of Indiana's Personal Injury Attorney Roy T. Tabor as 2018 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for Client Satisfaction.

Trucks the size of buildings coming soon to America’s roadways?

The imagery is purposeful and, we suspect, effective for many Indiana motorists and drivers elsewhere across the country.

What critics of a potentially huge change (literally as well as figuratively) in transportation seek to convey through painting a mental picture is this: If Congress caves in to trucking groups urging approval of bigger twin tractor-trailer rigs, drivers of passenger vehicles across the U.S. will regularly confront “a configuration that is approximately the size of an 8-story building.”

Indiana University at center of new advance in TBI research

Traumatic brain injury is a complex and most challenging medical condition. It cannot be seen in the way that many other maladies can be, of course. Moreover, third parties are often prone to dismissing the complaints as well as misunderstanding the behaviors of TBI victims. And head-related injury symptoms can last for years, even a lifetime.

We note the challenges on our website at Tabor Law Firm. From our offices in Indianapolis, our deep legal team of personal injury attorneys represents TBI victims and their families with knowledge and empathy.

Biking safety is everyone’s business

With summer upon us, it’s biking time in Indiana. There is no better way to stay in shape and respect the environment than biking for your commute and pleasure. But it can be dangerous, particularly on city streets.

Unfortunately, biking injuries due to accidents are on the rise, according to the Indiana State Police. Here are some important precautions that drivers need to take to help prevent cycling accidents.

Are things getting worse rather than better for pedestrians?

Looking at the sad subject of pedestrian fatalities in Indiana and nationally from the perspective of a single year provides limited -- though obviously important -- information.

When accident outcomes suffered by walkers involved in vehicle collisions are considered over a longer term, though, what is revealed can be far more meaningful.

Bigger Risk: Fire or School Shooter?

The Indianapolis Star had an article recently about measuring risk and keeping our kids safe while at school. School safety has certainly been in the spotlight ever since the February shooting in Parkland, Florida. Lawmakers have introduced a school safety bill that would allow Indiana schools to keep students in their rooms and barricade doors for a short time after an unplanned fire alarm.
