Motorcycle accidents are a well-known leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Together with auto accidents Leighton Vander Esch Hat , they are the single largest cause of brain injury in the United States. One out of every five motorcycle accidents results in head or neck injuries, which account for most motorcycle fatalities. And partly because drivers often don't see motorcyclists or yield them the right-of-way, motorcyclists are at higher risk of an accident than drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that, per mile traveled in 2003, a motorcyclist was 32 times more likely to die in an accident than a passenger in a car.

Motorcyclists, even those who wear helmets Sean Lee Hat , are most likely to sustain non-penetrative injuries to the front of the head, damaging parts of the brain responsible for speech and higher functions. Those without helmets may also be susceptible to a penetrating brain injury, in which an object enters the head and skull, damaging the soft tissue of the brain itself. Helmets Essential to Prevent Traumatic Brain Injury

Study after study shows that the best way to prevent a traumatic brain injury is to wear a helmet approved by the federal Department of Transportation. (Some also carry approval from the Snell Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to testing the effectiveness of commercial helmets.) In January of 2006, only four states in the U.S: Colorado Terrance Williams Hat , Illinois, New Hampshire and Iowa- had no law at all requiring motorcyclists to use helmets. Twenty-six others had limited helmet laws, usually ones that require helmets for riders who are under 18 or 21.

But even in states without strict helmet laws, riders are still strongly advised that their chances of death or serious head injury are seriously reduced by wearing a helmet. A rider's failure to equip passengers, particularly passengers who are under 21, with helmets may be considered negligent. And if the helmet is below state and federal standards Cole Beasley Hat , poorly fitted, old or has been through a previous accident, that helmet is not safe, may not be legal and will not prevent death, brain damage or another traumatic injury. Other Brain Injury Risks for Motorcyclists

Even though proper equipment significantly cuts down a motorcyclist's chance of a traumatic brain injury, it is not foolproof. Riders must stay aware of other factors that could lead to a motorcycle accident involving a traumatic brain injury. Motorcyclists are advised to check their bikes and equipment for problems before each ride; adjust the suspension and tire pressure of the motorcycle when carrying a passenger; wear boots Travis Frederick Hat , gloves and other protective gear; and adjust for changing road conditions.

The cost of an accident that causes traumatic brain injury can be severe. A traumatic brain injury causes brain damage that can range from a mild concussion to severe, life-changing disabilities such as trouble communicating, personality changes, schizophrenia, or even a coma. Because the brain cannot heal itself the way other organs do, these are often lifelong problems that cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat. They also place a severe emotional and financial burden on the injured person's family members. If you or someone you know is the victim of a motorcycle accident causing traumatic brain injury Zack Martin Hat , it is essential to seek out an expert in accidents and TBI who can help reconstruct the accident and secure compensation. SHANGHAI, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- With Tesla's sales in China growing, the company is working with the Shanghai government to "explore the possibility of establishing a manufacturing facility in the region to serve the Chinese market," Tesla said Tuesday in a statement. Over the past week, media reported that the electric car maker has entered an agreement to build its own factory in Shanghai. But the company did not confirm the news in the statement, only reiterating that "we expect to more clearly define our plans for production in China by the end of the year." The Shanghai government departments did not comment on the issue either. Tesla said in the statement that it was "deeply committed to the Chinese market" and continues to look at opportunities to establish manufacturing sites worldwide to serve the local market. While Tesla expects most of its production to remain in the United States Tyron Smith Hat , the company needs to "establish local factories to ensure affordability for the markets they serve." On Monday, the American auto maker opened a massive 50-stall supercharger station in Shanghai Pudong New Area, which it claimed to be the company's largest supercharger station in the world. Tesla's electric charging network already covers more than 170 cities in China. It has built over 700 superchargers in the country, and the number is expected to exceed 1,000 before 2018. In mid-October, the company announced it would deliver its modified Model S and Model X vehicles to the Chinese market and ensure they meet national charging standards. These moves are seen as support for China's new energy vehicle (NEV) industry. As the world's largest car market Demarcus Lawrence Hat , China is also the fastest-growing market for NEVs as the government looks to ease pressure on the environment. Data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology showed production and sales of NEVs rose by 40.2 percent and 37.7 percent to 424,000 and 398,000, respectively, in the first nine months of this year, compared to the same period of last year. Other global major auto makers including BMW Jason Witten Hat , PSA Peugeot Citroen, Toyota and Mercedes-Benz have also stepped up their pace in exploring the NEV industry in recent years, eyeing emerging markets, especially China. Construction of the Mercedes-Benz auto parts remanufacturing plant began earlier this month in Shanghai.
