Brain Injuries

Brain Injury Lawyers

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, over 1.5 million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) every year. Out of these victims, at least 50,000 individuals will die from their injury, while around 80,000 will face life-long injuries and rehabilitative care.

CAUSES OF BRAIN INJURIES

Brain injuries can be caused by a wide variety of accident types and incidents, including:

When you sustain a brain injury, the damage may be either temporary or permanent, but in both cases it will have a significant impact on your life. When you suffer from brain injury disabilities, you deserve an experienced attorney on your side to ensure all of your financial needs are met while you cope during this difficult time.

BRAIN INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIMS

The amount awarded in a brain injury lawsuit is often higher than the compensation offered in other types of personal injury cases. The reason for this is simple: brain injuries will have a more devastating impact on your quality of life and your ability to support yourself into the future. TBI also requires substantial medical and rehabilitative care. These expenses add up quickly, and when they are combined with a loss of cognitive function or other permanent disabilities, you have a right to demand swift and uncompromising justice.

Tech Innovations in US Education

Virtual and augmented reality are making a huge difference in modern education. The impact of using such technology in the classroom can be more than we can imagine. Not even can it make the learning process more exciting, but also make it a more profound experience.

Surveys conducted among educators show that most teachers think that the use of virtual reality can enhance the coursework in a variety of subjects. The most talked about ones are science, history and social studies. But the statistics show that, unfortunately, only 2% of the surveyed teachers have actually used innovative technology during their lessons.

Perhaps we should ask ourselves whether VR and AR are ready for the classroom? While the ed-tech industry is booming, some educators have not been able to keep up with the development of digital technology. Government funding for public schools digital content has totaled up to more than $3 billion per year. Yet, as reported, the change is something that can happen over a year: staff training, building the IT-infrastructure in public schools, securing students private information, implementation of digital content to the curriculum, etc.

Even though schools and teachers may not be entirely ready for the new tech-ed approach, digital content, VR, and AR without a doubt will be an inseparable part of the future education.  Infographic and text provided by BookWormLab

Why People Lift Their Houses

It’s certainly not the most common home improvement project, but there are occasions where it is necessary or appropriate to lift a house from its foundation.  One of the most common places you will find lifted houses is on the East coast where there is a heightened risk of hurricanes and Nor’easters.  These storms potentially pose a threat of devastating flood damage.  Following Super Storm Sandy, 1000’s of homes on the East coast have been lifted to protect them from future flood risk.

If you have heard of house lifting at all, it’s probably because of this reason.  But there are other occasions where house lifting can be beneficial too.

Thanks to modern equipment and expert teams, house lifting can be an appropriate solution to a number of problems, adding a basement, fixing a foundation, even adding a new floor instead of moving.  In Connecticut there has been a large-scale problem with crumbling foundations, potentially due to a poor quality concrete from a local quarry.    Lifting the house allows contractors easy access to the foundations to perform a full scale replacement if necessary.  Infographic provided by High Caliber Contracting LLC
