The answers to these questions could prevent brain damage

One of the top causes of traumatic brain injury is motor vehicle accidents. Even so, many people who get into a collision on the Pennsylvania roadways choose not to seek medical attention, even if they feel dizzy or have a headache in the few hours after the crash. 

Workers’ compensation for repetitive stress injuries

Over time, you may begin noticing that performing your job is not as easy as it used to be. You can’t complete tasks as quickly and may need to continually stop because the pain is too much. Some may write these off as symptoms of getting older but age may not be the only culprit. You could be suffering from a repetitive stress injury, and if your RSI is work-related, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

What can you do to prevent falls?

According to the National Institute on Aging, your risk of a fall rises the older you get, and every year more than one out of three Pennsylvanians age 65 and older will suffer a fall. Falling can result in a devastating injury for an older adult, especially if you have underlying health issues such as osteoporosis, which can make your bones more susceptible to fractures. In some cases, a fall may result from the negligence of others; for example, the proprietors of a business may have a broken sidewalk outside or fail to notify visitors of a wet spot on the floor.
