Woman suffers brain injury in hit-and-run, man charged

When a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury, family members may need to create a plan to handle the possible long-term care for the victim. Unfortunately, family and friends must learn how to prepare for the recuperation process while they are still grieving. Understandably, it may be more frustrating for families when the brain injury results from another's negligent act. Family members of the loved one may pursue a personal injury claim to get help with the costs of their loved one's injury.

A "Biomarker" Test for Asbestos May Help Diagnose Mesothelioma

The use of asbestos became increasingly popular among manufacturers and builders in the late 19th century because of its sound absorption, tensile strength, resistance to fire, heat, electrical and chemical damage, and of course, its affordability. It was used in such applications as electrical insulation for hotplate wiring and in building insulation. When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are often mixed with cement (resulting in fiber cement) or woven into fabric or mats. At the time, asbestos was making the world of building construction a safer, better place. However, today asbestos is a well-known carcinogen that can cause several types of cancers, including mesothelioma. In the United States, the majority of workers who come into contact with asbestos today are those who work in the demolition of existing buildings. In most cases, asbestos dust is accidentally inhaled by construction workers. Yet mesothelioma and other cancers may not be detected until many years after the construction worker is exposed to asbestos. By this time, the cancer may be at an advanced stage and unresponsive to treatment. Symptoms of the dreadful disease include shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, weight loss and night sweats. By the time people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, the survival time is often about 12 months
