Common areas for accidents on the farm

Farmers in South Dakota are rushing to get their work done in the fall to make sure their crops are good for the holidays and to prepare their land for the winter. This also means that it is one of the more dangerous seasons of the year for them as their quicker work approach can lead to some serious accidents.

Weather-related traffic accidents bring a flood of grief

With fundraisers and celebrity contributions, it is likely that charities raised millions of dollars to support the victims of the recent natural disasters across the country. You may have joined others in South Dakota who watched news coverage of devastating winds and floods, leaving destruction and death behind. You were probably horrified to hear of the number of people who died in those storms.

Traumatic amputation can leave you with considerable pain

You likely understand that anyone could be involved in a life-changing accident at any time. You may have felt as if your life was heading in a positive direction and that you had the abilities to participate in activities that made your life feel worthwhile when a serious incident resulted in your suffering a catastrophic injury, such as losing a limb. This type of outcome can occur after a severe car accident, and you may not know how to move forward.

Help with a Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury, or catastrophic brain injury, affects approximately 1.5 million Americans per year, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). CDC also estimates that about 5.3 million U.S. citizens - about 2 percent of the population - live with issues related to traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI is not necessarily a killer, though about 50,000 people die every year from TBI. Yearly, 80,000 to 90,000 people suffer from a long-term disability because of TBI.

Reducing Catastrophic Injuries in South Dakota

South Dakota is a wonderful state with so many positives for locals and visitors. There is, however, a negative we should address. In the decade from 2003-2012, 537 people lost their lives in car crashes involving drunk drivers in this state. South Dakota's drunk driving death toll was almost double the national average during that time. (National average: 3.3 deaths per year per 100,000 population; South Dakota: 5.7 deaths per year per 100,000 population.) These are unacceptable statistics.
