Skilled surgeons and physicians across the country save thousands of lives every year. Unfortunately, there are also thousands of lives that are lost every year before, during and after medical procedures. Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences any Delaware citizen can face.

In another state, a lawsuit was filed after alleged negligence caused a man to suffer severe brain injuries that eventually led to his death.

The human brain is amazing and incredibly complex. However, it is also one of the most fragile organs in the human body.

Traumatic brain injuries have permanent ramifications

Biking is a popular form of recreation in Delaware, and riders should always wear protective headgear. While the brain is one of the most important organs in the human body, it is also one of the most fragile. The brain is so complex that scientists still don't fully understand it. One thing is for certain -- life is not possible without this vital organ. Brain injuries can significantly impede a person for the rest of his or her life.

Brain injuries: Shocking statistics and prevention tips

With warmer weather quickly approaching, Delaware citizens will be heading outdoors to enjoy activities such as biking, playing sports and even skateboarding. When participating in these activities, head protection is always recommended. The brain is one of the most important organs in the body, and it is also one of the most fragile. According to the Brain Injury Association of America, brain injuries are one of the top causes of injury and death in America these days.

Brain injuries: Awareness is key

Any head injury is a big deal, no matter how insignificant the initial injury may seem. A blow to the head can lead to concussions and other injuries. Mild traumatic brain injuries are commonly referred to as a silent epidemic. In Delaware and around the country, many who suffer these injuries often fail to recognize the symptoms, so they never seek medical treatment. To help with brain injury awareness, the month of March has been designated as brain injury awareness month.

Millions suffer brain injuries every year

One of the most important organs in the human body is the brain, and without it, life is literally impossible. Any injury to this crucial organ, no matter how minor, can potentially disable a person for the rest of his or her life. Brain injuries can cause speech problems, affect thinking abilities and impair basic motor skills. Each year, 2.5 million people in Delaware and across the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries. A woman in another state recently filed a lawsuit after a surgical procedure allegedly left her with a brain injury.

The brain is one of the most important but delicate organs in the human body. The brain consciously or subconsciously controls every function in the body, and without it, life would be impossible.

Any mistake, no matter how small, can have disastrous and far-reaching effects on patients and their families.

With stringent patient safety regulations and modern technological advancements, medical care in Delaware and across the United States should be safer than ever before.

A couple in another state was awarded almost $4 million after alleged negligence caused a woman to suffer permanent brain injuries.

Project finds high rate of brain injuries in inmate population

Traumatic brain injuries can have a myriad of impacts on a victim's life, many of which are still being uncovered by science. One recent project investigated claims that people with brain injuries are more likely to commit crimes and be incarcerated. They found that a significantly higher percentage of inmates and probationers had a history of TBI than those in the general population. This data would be of interest to brain injury victims in Delaware who have had run-ins with the law.

New blood test may help diagnose traumatic brain injuries

Once of the biggest medical challenges when it comes to traumatic brain injuries (TBI) is the diagnosis of brain trauma. Physicians in Delaware and around the world have traditionally needed to depend on symptoms like headaches and sensitivity to decide whether a CT scan was necessary in concussion cases. However, a new blood test may be able to identify brain injuries with more certainty.
