Washington D.C. drunk driving accidents and injuries
The Iowa State Patrol says the accident occurred on Highway 275, just north of the Mills/Fremont County line near Tabor. Authorities say a pickup driven by 57-year-old Lee Mosier of Imogene was southbound when he noticed headlights facing him off on the west shoulder. Mosier told authorities he believed the vehicle was pulling out into his lane, so he took the west shoulder. Mosier’s vehicle collided with a car driven by 66-year-old William Rickabaugh Jr. of Malvern which was pulled off on the west shoulder facing the wrong way. Rickabaugh was getting mail out of a mail box at the time. Rickabaugh was taken by Glenwood Rescue to Creighton University Hospital in Omaha. Mosier was checked for injuries at the scene. The accident occurred at 5:39 p.m.

Car Accidents and Brain Injuries
But statistics from the Family Caregiver Alliance show that car accidents may be more of a cause for concern. They result in the most severe injuries. Nearly half – 49 percent – of brain injuries that require hospitalization result from motor vehicle accidents. Car accident victims can sustain brain injuries in a variety of ways. In some cases, they receive head injuries from striking their heads against the windshield or dashboard, but victims do not have to actually hit their head to sustain head trauma. In addition, the vehicle does not have to be traveling fast. Motor vehicle accidents at moderate speeds can still result in catastrophic injuries . The symptoms of a head injury may appear right away, but they can also develop slowly over hours or even days.

Injury accident in Mills County
Here are 4 basic rules that every car accident victim should adhere to in order to help you, their lawyer, frame the best case possible. With the best case, you have a better chance at getting them the payments that they deserve. 1. Make Notes Some of the most important advice to give accident victims is to make sure they get their story straight. Clients need to get a clear story in their head so they can tell the same series of events to every party, from insurance adjusters to policemen. Have them make notes as soon as possible (even at the scene) about everything, whether it seems relevant or not. How did the collision happen? What cars were involved? How many passengers were in each car? What did the other driver say to you, or what did you overhear them say to other people? These are just a few potential questions your client will need to answer. Elements such as the weather and location of the accident are also very important. Finally, the client (or their passengers) needs to take as many pictures as possible. Pictures need to be taken of both cars (from all angles) and of the area surrounding the accident.

The number is even higher for brain injuries that led to a patient requiring hospitalization with 49 percent attributed to motor vehicle crashes. Alcohol is known to be a contributor in accidents with one person being injured every two minutes as a result of being involved in an alcohol-related wreck. The FCA calculates that number as a total of 321,000 people annually. Further data from the Family Caregiver Alliance show that traumatic brain injuries were recorded in 41 percent of all motor vehicle accidents caused by intoxication that resulted in fatalities in 1996. Alcohol was noted to be a contributing factor in a total of seven percent of all accidents in which people sustained brain injuries that year. A look at drunk driving in Washington D.C. Information for the year 2011 from the National Highway Transportation Safety Association shows that 30 percent of all automotive fatalities were attributed to the involvement of alcohol. A total of eight people lost their lives at the hands of drunk drivers that year out of a total 27 vehicular deaths in all. That means there were 1.29 alcohol-related deaths per 100,000 residents on D.C. area roadways.
