No one here in New York ever expects to suffer a head injury, but those who do often see their lives change in an instant. Even a "mild" brain injury, like a concussion, can impact a person's life, in both cognitive and physical ways. There are ways to prevent concussions, and the good news is that utilizing these strategies may even help prevent more serious head and brain injuries as well.

People with brain injuries know all too well how life-changing they can be. Depending on the precise injury, a person could experience both cognitive and physical ability impairment. March is Brain Injury Awareness Month in New York and across the nation and advocates want people to know the facts about brain injuries and just how they can impact people's lives.

Construction accidents: Man dies after fall from roof

This nation owes a great deal of thanks to construction workers. Not only are they responsible for creating buildings, but their jobs can often be dangerous, with a high risk of injury or even fatality.

One recent accident here in New York resulted in one worker's death after he suffered a horrific fall.

Certain injuries can result in life-long trauma. The people who suffer them may require extensive care that they may have to rely on someone else to provide. Spinal cord injuries can be particularly devastating as they can impede a person's mobility; however, there are certain safety measures that can help prevent them.

Construction accidents: Worker killed, another injured

People who work in the construction industry provide a great service. They also place themselves at significant risk of injury or even death every time they set food on a job site.

Unfortunately, that answer isn't always so clear and there could be multiple factors involved. This is what New York authorities are trying to determine after an accident on a construction site resulted in serious injury to one worker and another worker's death.
