At this time of year, many workers are taking on extra shifts, second jobs, temporary jobs, or even gig work. In today’s hustle culture, many people are pursuing multiple streams of income to make ends meet or to get ahead. Whether you’re saving for a big purchase or want to be able to pay for the holidays, working extra has its risks.

Studies have shown that long hours can increase your risk of car accidents, especially if you work shifts. Your risk of a car accident is also higher after a long shift, because you are exhausted.

Some workplaces are more dangerous than others. Manufacturing, trucking, construction work, and other sectors all have high levels of injury.

April is National Alcohol Awareness Month and it’s a great time to discuss drinking responsibly. Alcohol has been drunk since at least 7000–6600 BCE, but it is only in the last generation or two that we have come to appreciate how dangerous it can be.

March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month and it’s a great time to raise awareness about traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can be a life-altering or fatal injury to sustain. Many traumatic brain injuries occur due to blunt force trauma to the brain. When this happens, the brain shakes around inside the skull, which can cause bruising and bleeding to occur. In some cases, the brain swells due to the injury and because of the skull there is no place for the brain to go, causing pressure which can cause further damage to the brain tissue.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case.
