LegalView Updated its Traumatic Brain Injury Blog with Results of Brain Injury Victim Critical Care Study
June 17, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDenver, CO - LegalView.com provided resources for readers of the traumatic brain injury (TBI) blog via its revamped TBI information portal. The information includes several groundbreaking surveys in which critical care providers of TBI patients were interviewed to improve on the guidelines for brain injury treatment . The first study, conducted in 1995 by researchers at Cornell University Medical College, monitored the treatment of severe head injury patients and then collected data via telephone interviews with nurse managers, clinical specialists and staff nurses. Individuals who have been involved in a TBI accident are advised to speak with a brain injury lawyer about the potential for developing a brain injury case. Often, medical bills associated with a head injury can quickly add up and looking into a brain injury lawsuit may lead to monetary compensation as a potential outcome, which would help a victim suffering from a brain injury.
The study conducted in 2006 and published in The Journal of Trauma Injury, Infection, and Critical Care picked up where the 1995 and 2000 studies left off. The study reported dramatic improvements in the guidelines for caring for and treating TBI patients. Although the study found improvements in the state of health care for brain injury victims, it is often recommended that contacting an experienced brain injury law firm is a good preventative measure as a brain injury attorney can provide insight into the legalities surrounding a brain injury victim's injury to ensure they are protected.

Currently, LegalView has maintained its status as the top legal resource information provider for victims of controversial pharmaceutical drugs by continually updating news on topics like the Chantix side effects, the Levaquin risks and the Digitek digoxin recall.
Chantix, a prescription drug for individuals trying to quit smoking, was allegedly linked to several hundred reports of suicidal thoughts and tendencies, depression and erratic behavior among individuals taking the drug. The Chantix side effects, while currently being investigated, have not sparked a recall even after 38 suicides were reported among patients who were allegedly taking the smoking cessation drug.
The Levaquin risks that have surfaced in recent months derive from a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in the September-October 2003 issue that found the drug, which treats an array of infections from pneumonia to bronchitis, may cause an increase in tendon ruptures for patients.
The most recent news regarding the Digitek recall is also available through LegalView's information portal, with information on the alleged manufacturing defect that caused the heart congestive failure drug to contain double the amount of appropriate doses, leaving patients exposed to potentially toxic levels of the drug.
