Analyzing the effects of conversations on drivers

All Nevada drivers are banned from using hand-held cellphones and texting. While most people are aware that these activities are distracting and can increase the risk for car and pedestrian accidents, some may not know the full details. This is where a meta-analysis published in Human Factors can come in.

Traffic deaths caused by many factors

Nevada drivers probably know that speeding and drunk driving are high risk behaviors that contribute to auto accidents, but they may be surprised to learn about some of the other factors contributing to traffic fatalities. Safe driving requires a comprehensive approach to safety that includes taking precautions before getting behind the wheel along with attentiveness after getting started.

Critieria for an SBA loan

Small business owners in Nevada and elsewhere may find that an SBA loan is an ideal way to acquire working capital. These loans can be used for almost any purpose, and they also come with reasonable repayment terms and interest rates. However, not just any company can qualify for such assistance. In order to meet the requirements for securing a loan, a company generally needs to have been in operation for two years or more, a credit score of 620 or higher and more than $100,000 in annual revenue.

Common premises liability issues

When an individual is injured at a commercial property, the owner could be held liable for damages. There are many potential liability issues that could make a Nevada property unsafe. For instance, a carpet that is not laying flat can cause someone to slip and fall. Cables or wires that are not properly stored could also pose a trip hazard. It's important to note that premises liability lawsuits tend to be among the most expensive types of claims to resolve.

Daylight Saving Time may contribute to driver fatigue

A recent AAA study highlights the potential drowsy driving side effects of Daylight Saving Time. By turning their clocks ahead, Nevada motorists could lose some valuable sleeping time. Beyond the risk of falling asleep at the wheel, fatigued drivers also suffer from lower reaction times.

Device could determine if drivers were texting and driving

Although many Nevada drivers are aware that driving and texting is extremely dangerous, some drivers still look at their phone screens when they should be focusing on the road. Distracted drivers are at risk for causing accidents that can result in life-threatening or deadly injuries. However, officers often have difficulty determining if a driver was texting at the time of the crash.

Brain injuries could be connected to earlier dementia onset

Traumatic brain injuries can be some of the most concerning and devastating types of personal injuries, with lifelong consequences and effects that continue to be the subject of scientific research. According to research conducted at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, traumatic brain injuries and concussions may lead to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease at an earlier age.

New concussion test being questioned

Nevada residents may have access to a new blood test that can detect signs of a traumatic brain injury. Despite some reports, however, it does not determine if a person has a concussion. The test, which was recently approved by the FDA, is used to decide if a person might benefit from a CT scan by looking for proteins in the blood.
