What is a Wheel Runoff Accident
Most people know the common causes of car accidents. They’re usually caused by distracted driving, failing to check a blind spot, driving under the influence, poor weather, speeding, and in some cases, worn-out components, like the brake lines or a suddenly decompressed tire. They don’t typically think of a flying tire as the cause of an accident. Unfortunately, it happens, and it’s called wheel runoff.

How Often Do Car Accidents Result in Spinal Cord Injuries
According to the DoT’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics, there were nearly 6.76 million car accidents in 2019, the latest year for which complete data is available. These resulted in 2.74 million injuries and over 36,000 deaths.

In a car accident, any part of the body can be injured to one degree or another, but the spinal cord is especially vulnerable. Together with the brain, the spinal cord composes the central nervous system; it is a bundle of nerves and cells covered by layers of tissue called meninges, which are in turn wrapped by a protective column of bones called vertebrae. Neurosurgeons divide the vertebral column into three regions: the cervical (comprising the neck), thoracic (chest), and lumbar (lower back). The spinal cord has over 40 of these vertebrae.

The new year is going to be here in a matter of weeks. With that, people are likely looking forward to new resolutions and are hopeful for a better year than the last. Part of that can also come from ways that state lawmakers are looking to improve South Carolina. When there are new laws or law changes, these can sometimes take place with the change of the year.

South Carolina residents should be aware of the laws that their state will have in the new year so they can be aware of their rights. Let’s take a look at the law changes coming to South Carolina in 2021.

It is National Bike Month! For many bicyclists, April’s warm weather has prompted them to dust off their bikes and seek a bike tune-up at their local bike shop. While we are all eager to soak up the sunlight and get some fresh air, bikers should remember safety comes first.

The Centers for Disease Control has reported that less than half of bicyclists wear helmets. Bike wrecks have been known to lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Whether you are commuting to work, riding with your family, or exercising, simply wearing a helmet can reduce your chance of death in the event a collision occurs.
