LegalView Brain Injury Site Reports Department of Veteran Affairs Request for Research on TBI and Soldiers

LegalView updated its traumatic brain injury (TBI) blog with information of a request for research by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) on the potential trauma associated with soldiers and helmets. The VA has declared that TBI is responsible for a significant portion of combat casualties and they are looking for research on improving protection from TBI trauma.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 2, 2008 --, the most comprehensive legal resource available on the Web, informed its traumatic brain injury (TBI) blog readers of the recent Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) declaration that TBI is responsible for many of the casualties deriving from the continued conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. The VA is requesting researchers study and report TBI-related information to the department in the hopes of improving the situation; the request has been deemed a scientific priority. Individuals who have been injured in a TBI accident may be advised to seek out experienced [traumatic brain injury attorneys __title__ Traumatic Brain Injury Law] in order to receive the best legal advice for any potential TBI-related lawsuit.

The VA request for research and developmental proposals includes information such as cognitive dysfunction, mood and anxiety disorders, post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), depression, post traumatic epilepsy, blast related vision and hearing deficits, chronic pain, substance abuse, sleep disturbances and suicidal tendencies. The VA said in its announcement that because of high-pressure waves, shrapnel and acceleration/deceleration injuries from explosive devices, many soldiers are not fully protected. The VA also noted that while its Kevlar helmets have saved lives, the increasing trauma from impacts and blasts to the heads and faces of soldiers may be resulting in multiple traumas as well as neuro-psychological disorders, motor loss, etc. Individuals who may have been injured by TBI should consider locating a [traumatic brain injury law firm __title__ Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer] that can provide the services of an array of [traumatic brain injury lawyers __title__ Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney].

In addition to the latest information on brain injury, LegalView has also recently updated several of its legal issue information portals including sites on truck accidents, the Zimmer Durom cup and the antibiotic known as Ketek. Each year, there are millions of vehicle accidents, many of which involve trucks and often can be fatal to those involved. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has found that of the truck accidents that occur in the United States, often, tractor-trailer trucks cause the most damage in terms of both monetary costs and fatalities/injuries. Individuals who have been injured in a truck accident may have the potential for receiving monetary compensation through a [truck accident lawsuit __title__ Truck Accident Lawyer].

The potential [Zimmer Durom cup recall __title__ Zimmer Durom Cup Settlement] has caused a stir among the medical community especially physicians who have reported that patients are complaining of failing Zimmer Durom cup components within their artificial hips. The company, Zimmer Holdings, which manufacturers the hip socket has stopped sales of the Durom cup, however, nearly 12,000 patients have already received the device since 2006.

The additional legal portal that was recently updated relates to an antibiotic used to treat upper respiratory infections among patients. The prescription drug Ketek was allegedly linked to liver damage and to an increased risk of jaundice. In April 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received reports of approximately 134 patients with liver damage as well as 18 deaths related to the consumption of Ketek. Patients who may be affected by this are urged to seek medical attention immediately if any signs of liver damage become apparent while taking Ketek. Additionally, discussing a [Ketek lawsuit __title__ Ketek Warning] with an experienced pharmaceutical attorney is advisable.
