Don't fall victim to a left-turn accident on your motorcycle

From the very first time that you get on your motorcycle, you understand the danger that other drivers pose. When someone tailgates you, you notice it instantly. When someone cuts you off, you get that surge of adrenaline.

It becomes clear to you that one mistake by someone else is all that it takes. You could avoid all mistakes and ride your bike perfectly, but that doesn't mean you won't crash. Other drivers have some say in your safety. You can't trust them not to make mistakes, so that means there is always an accident risk.

Brain injuries and relationships: Common thoughts and concerns

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can impact you in a multitude of ways. It can limit your physical abilities and cognitive functions, make it impossible for you to work and mean that you'll need assistance and medical care for the rest of your life.

The injury can also put a lot of stress on the relationships that you have with those around you. In some cases, family members do not feel like they even know you after a brain injury. You may physically be the same person, but your personality has changed so much that you seem like someone new. This is very hard for children and spouses of brain injury patients.

Johnson & Johnson markets a reportedly unsafe baby powder

Use of seemingly safe products can prove dangerous. In many instances, users may not be aware of the risks. And because such products continue to be available, states like South Dakota put in place products liability laws to hold manufacturers accountable.

For several years, Johnson & Johnson has been under the scrutiny of consumer advocate groups. According to a Reuters special report, the baby powder they manufacture was described by the World Health Organization in 2006 as being “possibly carcinogenic” for specific uses. But instead of removing the product off of the market, the company found new ways of marketing its goods.

South Dakota moves closer to stricter distracted driver ban

Distracted driving is a problem that does not appear to be going away. According to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, in 2018, 854 distracted driving crashes occurred in South Dakota.

South Dakota had previously banned texting and emailing while driving, but a driver could not be stopped for these offenses. A law enforcement officer had to see drivers engaging in another violation to pull them over.
