The brachial plexus is a network of nerve fibers that runs from the neck to the arm. A newborn baby can suffer a brachial plexus injury during birth if a physician or midwife uses excessive force during delivery. One common cause of brachial plexus injuries at birth is the setting of a “shoulder dystocia” also known as a “trapped” shoulder. Shoulder Dystocia and Brachial Plexus Injuries A shoulder dystocia can occur during birth when the baby’s shoulders reach the birth canal in an awkward position. Usually when a shoulder dystocia occurs, the baby’s shoulders are in a straight up and down position rather than an angle. The upward facing shoulder of the baby becomes stuck on the mother’s pubic symphysis, which is the cartilage that connects the right and left pelvic bones, and prevents delivery of the baby after the baby’s head has emerged. To resolve the situation, a doctor or midwife […]

A recent investigative report by CBS4 revealed that police departments in the Denver area have had very mixed results when it comes to enforcing Colorado’s new distracted driving law. Colorado distracted driving law The Colorado distracted driving law, which went into effect in 2009, prohibits drivers under the age of 18 from using cellphones to talk or text while behind the wheel, and also bars adults from using handheld devices to send or receive text messages while driving. However, despite high hopes that the measure would go a long way toward prevent distracted driving accidents in Colorado, CBS4’s findings suggest that this has not been the case in all areas. According to the report, enforcement of Colorado’s distracted law in the Denver […]

Many drivers believe they can save money on car insurance by either skating around the duty of having a car insurance policy or by choosing a policy with minimum coverage. What those drivers do not realize is their scheme to save some cash may not outweigh the costs of a major car accident. Proper car insurance liability coverage can be the difference between having and not having a major financial disaster when bad luck strikes. Importance of Proper Car Insurance Coverage The lack of proper car insurance does not deter many drivers from getting behind the wheel. According to the Insurance Research Council, about one in seven drivers across the country do not have car insurance even though it is illegal not to have some form of car insurance in every state except one […]
