LegalView Updates Brain Injury Site with Information on TBI Disabled Soldier’s Family

Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 1, 2008

LegalView.com, the number one online legal resource for Americans, recently updated its traumatic brain injury blog with information of one family’s struggle to provide a disabled soldier family member with care after he sustained a severe traumatic brain injury from an improvised explosive device (IED) hitting his Humvee in the Iraq war. The family has blogged about their role as caregivers that each have provided for Sgt. Sam Nichols since he returned home. Each blog lists updates on Nichols status as well as insight into the difficulties that have plagued the family which are not only mental and physical, but have taken a financial toll as well.

Individuals with a similar plight to that of Sgt. Sam Nichols and his family should consider contacting a brain injury law firm that can provide a number of TBI attorneys and TBI lawyers to choose from. A brain injury lawyer will likely be able to offer a free legal consultation as to the development of any potential traumatic brain injury lawsuit.

Traumatic brain injuries affect millions of Americans annually and a total of 5.4 million U.S. citizens currently suffer from TBI and its side effects, which can range from memory loss to personality changes as well as cognitive disorders, according to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIA). For more information on the details and complications associated with a TBI diagnosis, it is advisable to contact a neurologist as well as a specialized traumatic brain injury attorney.

LegalView also offers several other information portals for victims of more than just traumatic brain injuries. For example, there are information portals with topics ranging from mesothelioma cancer to controversial prescription drug issues such as Avandia and Byetta.

Mesothelioma cancer is a rare form of cancer that has been linked to the inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust among individuals often employed in or working with construction materials. The mesothelioma practice area portal offers information on mesothelioma treatments and updated mesothelioma news as well as how to obtain an experienced mesothelioma attorney.

Additionally, there are several pharmaceutical portals containing information about controversial drugs such as the type 2 diabetes drugs known as Avandia and Byetta. Avandia, which was released from GlaxoSmithKline in mid-1999, is part of a drug class that utilizes an individual’s natural insulin production rather than administering outside insulin injections. It has been prescribed to millions of diabetics and has also been at the center of an ongoing controversy regarding the Avandia side effects. The drug has been linked to early onset osteoporosis as well as heart disease and heart failure among patients.

Byetta, which is also a type 2 diabetes drug at the center of a controversy, is part of a different class of drugs that uses the body’s natural insulin production as well, however, Byetta injects medicine that “mimics” the effects of hormones and other functions into the body to cause insulin production. Byetta has been available on the market since 2005 and by October 2007, patients began reporting side effects that included acute pancreatitis. Individuals who have been adversely affected by Byetta are encouraged to contact a pharmaceutical attorney as participation in a Byetta class action lawsuit may be possible.

LegalView Reports on Helmets as Traumatic Brain Injury Increases among Soldiers in Iraq



Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 11, 2008

Denver, CO — LegalView, the number one resource for everything and anything legal, recently reported the negative results of a study that found helmets might worsen a traumatic brain injury (TBI) among soldiers in Iraq and even act as a “focusing mechanism” for shockwaves during a blast caused by an improvised explosive device (IED). The results of the study were reported during the 61st Meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics at the San Antonio Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). The study reported that shockwaves emanating from an IED explosion may “penetrate the gap between the helmet and head” causing an increased number of shockwaves under the helmet and outside of the helmet worsening the traumatic brain injury that can occur, according to the TBI information blog.

Those who have suffered from TBI should consider consulting an experienced brain injury law firm that can provide contact to an array of knowledgeable brain injury lawyers and brain injury attorneys who can provide a free legal consultation as to the development of a TBI lawsuit.

Individuals who are also in need of additional information on other legal topics can find assistance through the LegalView library of information portals, with topics including the latest on Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis, Avandia and Byetta.

Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) is a rare and extremely crippling condition that is commonly attributed to the administration of gadolinium dyes during magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography (MRI/MRA) procedures among kidney disease patients. The condition can cause patients skin to thicken and swell eventually disabling the joints from moving. Those who suffer from the NSF side effects can consult with a personal injury attorney and likely receive a free legal consultation as to the development of a potential NSF lawsuit that may offer a return of monetary compensation to assist in paying for NSF treatments.

Avandia and Byetta are both type 2 diabetes prescription medications, however, each has been making news headlines for very different reasons. Avandia, from GlaxoSmithKline, was introduced to the market in 1999. In 2007, a New England Journal of Medicine article reported that consumption of Avandia allegedly increases the risk of heart disease among patients. Additionally, a Swiss study announced that Avandia also may allegedly increase the risk of bone breaks and fractures during consumption of Avandia. Those consuming Avandia may want to speak with their physician regarding the alleged Avandia side effects.

Also in 2007, approximately 30 patients reported to the FDA that they suffered from pancreatic inflammation while consuming Byetta, the type 2 diabetes medication. In 2008, again, six patients were hospitalized with acute pancreatitis all of whom were consuming Byetta. The FDA is investigating the claims of an alleged link between Byetta and the development of pancreas disorders, but patients are advised to speak with their doctor as well as to an experienced Byetta attorney.

Brain Injury Accidents Can Be Difficult To Prove by Chula Vista Head Trauma Lawyer Mark C. Blane

Chula Vista Brain Trauma Attorney Mark C. Blane briefly discusses how brain injury accidents occur when an external force causes injury to the axonal tissue of the brain. This type of injury is medically classified as a diffuse axonal injury or DAI. Brain injuries can be present without any external physical evidence, which makes them more difficult to prove in an injury case. The best way to legally prove brain injuries without any physical evidence or medical documentation is to bring in family members and those close to the victim, to testify to emotional changes within the victim. Often, emotional change is the best indication of a brain injury. If you think you or someone you love may have a brain injury, do not feel like you are alone. Contact Chula Vista brain injury lawyer Mark C. Blane today.

LegalView Features New Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment Information For U.S. Soldiers Using Diver’s Therapy for Victims



Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 31, 2008

LegalView, the number one legal resource located on the Web, recently reported up-to-date information on a potential new treatment for traumatic brain injury patients, specifically U.S. soldiers from the Iraq war, on its traumatic brain injury information blog.

The treatment that is being researched by medical and military professionals commonly treats a condition known as diver’s bends, which occurs when a diver is exposed to pressures that begin to increase without proper precautions. The treatment is known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and occurs when an individual breaths “pure oxygen while in a sealed chamber that has been pressurized at 1.5 to 3 times normal atmospheric pressure,” according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).

Scientists believe that when applied to a traumatic brain injury victim, HBOT may be able to relieve the pressures of an explosive blast-induced brain injury, which has become the signature wound of the Iraq war. According to a Dec. 20 news report from Canada’s The Daily Gleaner, “the constellation of signs and symptoms attributable to mild TBI and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the same as those seen in a condition in which bubbles are formed from the exposure to excessive pressures” including improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Victims of TBI may find hope in the new treatment, which can be physically, mentally and financially devastating.

Individuals who have suffered from such an injury may find assistance in locating a brain injury law firm that can offer a plethora of brain injury lawyers and attorneys to choose from. A traumatic brain injury attorney may be able to offer a free legal consultation as to the potential development of a brain injury lawsuit.

LegalView also has available several additional legal information portals including what to do if involved in a truck accident and overcoming a mesothelioma diagnosis as well as information on the latest type 2 diabetes prescription drug known as Avandia.

According to the LegalView truck accident information portal, approximately 80,000 truck accidents occurred last year alone. It is also common that truck accidents result in the most costly and fatal vehicular accidents because of the size of the trucks involved. Individuals who have been involved in a truck accident should seek medical attention, as many of the injuries deriving from a truck accident are internal and may not have signs and symptoms that are apparent until far too late for a truck accident victim.

Mesothelioma is a rare and destructive cancer that has been linked to the inhalation of asbestos fibers among individuals. Often, a mesothelioma diagnosis is delivered with little success for treating the condition as well as a grim life expectancy of one year. However, by contacting a mesothelioma attorney it may be possible to earn monetary compensation that could pay for experimental treatments of the condition. To learn more, visit http://mesothelioma.legalview.com/.

Additionally, LegalView offers information on the latest prescription drug controversies including the type 2 diabetes condition known as Avandia. Avandia has been linked to heart failure and bone fractures among patients, according to news reports from The New England Journal of Medicine. Patients consuming Avandia should speak with a medical professional and an experienced pharmaceutical attorney in order to avoid the harmful Avandia side effects associated with the drug.
