Victims of traumatic brain injury experience lasting effects

West Virginia University has an Injury Control Research Center that looks at Traumatic Brain Injury causes and long term needs for people who have suffered a brain injury from workplace, car or other accidents.

Motorcyclist flown to hospital after accident

Summer is filled with fun destinations and bike rallies for motorcycle enthusiasts. West Virginia can be an especially scenic destination. However, car and truck drivers must be mindful that motorcycles share the road and keep a watchful eye out for them, as they are less visible than other vehicles. A recent statistic indicates that safety is still a concern for motorcyclists: 29 fatal motorcycle accidents occurred in the first nine months of 2010 in West Virginia.

Another West Virginia miner injured in workplace accident

Last week we discussed the inspection of nine West Virginia mines by the U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration, which resulted in 158 citations, 26 orders and 3 safeguards for safety violations. The MSHA inspections aim at preventing on-the-job injuries. Yet despite the recent attention drawn to unsafe working conditions in some mines, another worker has been injured on the job.

West Virginia coal mine cited for safety violations

As many West Virginia residents know, mining is a substantial industry in the state. It can also be a dangerous occupation if safety measures are not taken. For that reason, the U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration performs spot inspections on mines to help protect against unnecessary workplace injuries, similar to OSHA investigations performed in other industries.
