Driving is such a basic occurrence of everyday life for many Bronx residents that it is easy to take it for granted. It is also easy to overlook the dangers that can be present on the road, such as the possibility of a car accident caused by an unsafe driver. And yet, these dangers are very present, as car accidents seriously injure or kill many individuals across the country each and every day.
A central part of many Baltimore area residents' lives is their job. Individuals depend on having a steady source of income from their job in order to provide for themselves and their family, and earn a living. Accordingly, when individuals are not able to work for extended periods of time, it can cause a hardship on their finances, with devastating results to follow if they cannot make up that lost income.
School is considered by many Baltimore parents to be a safe place for their children to learn and grow. Within this context, the thought of a child injury occurring at school is a frightening one, especially given that these injuries occur when the parent is not present. While the thought may not be pleasant, unfortunately the reality is that children are injured from time to time at school.
Baltimore residents may be surprised to hear that over 100,000 people suffer serious brain injuries every year in the country. The causes are varied, although motorcycle drivers in particular face increased dangers on the road. Indeed, a motorcyclist is 26 times more likely to die in an auto accident than his car-driving counterpart, and five times more likely to be injured.
