    CAFO stands for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, sometimes known as factory farms. These farms are located in rural and suburban areas, and are home to massive amounts of livestock, including pigs, chickens, and cows. According to the EPA, a CAFOs are agricultural operations where animals are kept and raised in confined situations. CAFOs congregate animals, feed, manure and urine, dead animals, and production operations on a small land area. Feed is brought to the animals rather than the animals grazing or otherwise seeking feed in pastures, fields, or on rangeland. Though they offer a less expensive method of producing higher volumes animal products, they are creating big trouble for the communities in which they are located. So much so that many community members have begun taking legal action.

    Most of us have been involved in a minor fender bender at some point in our lives. We pull over, exchange information with the other party and go about our business. No police, no injury and minimal property damage, if any. Unfortunately, in some of these minor crashes there are soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains and contusions for which medical treatment is required. In other cases injuries can be catastrophic such as multiple bone fractures, head trauma and spinal cord injuries. But what about the psychological impact of a car crash? You might expect to have some anxiety or fear of driving or being a passenger for a few weeks following the crash. But what if the anxiety doesn’t go away? What if you experience other symptoms such as depression, mood swings, insomnia, flashbacks and nightmares? You could be suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

    Being involved in a car crash can be very stressful. Not only are you coping with physical and emotional pain, but you must also deal with medical bills. If you go to the emergency room after the crash, you will likely receive several bills for that one emergency room visit. You will get a bill from the hospital, but also from the ER physician, the laboratory department, and the radiology department, to name a few. If you are admitted and consult with any type of specialty doctor, such as a neurologist or orthopedic doctor, or if surgery is required, you will receive additional bills for the cost of those services. In addition, you will probably follow up with your primary care doctor who may refer you to a specialty doctor or even physical therapy, depending on your injuries. Even with health insurance, your bills for co-pays and deductibles can add up fast.

    Driving on icy roads can be scary and extremely dangerous. You may think that you have your vehicle under control but if you hit ice you can lose control in an instant and cause an accident, injuring yourself and others. If possible, you should avoid driving in extreme weather conditions. If you have to drive there are precautions you can take to reduce the risk of getting into an accident.

    Not everyone injured in a car crash needs to hire a lawyer. Not every case requires you to have a lawyer. If you do a little bit of research, you might decide that you can handle your case on your own.

    My name is Mahlon Frankhauser and the name of my talk is “Never give up ~ persevere!” I was a securities attorney for 40 years and during that time worked for the SEC and The New York Stock Exchange. For the last 28 years I had been a partner of a large International nationwide law firm from which I am now retired due to my injury and inability to practice law.

    We held our Greenway Charity Event "Open House" Yesterday. As many of you know, we are trying to position BIS to become a major recipient of funds from this annual event. The Greenway Manager actually spent quite a bit of time at the Loudoun Office with us so we have "high hopes" for our chances to be part of this. They have already donated "passes" in the amount of $2,000 to cover our case managers expenses going out there. Our case manager, Chris Swenson is responsible for getting the ball rolling on this. Barbara donated her car to drive up and down the greenway with our logo and wearing "brain helmets". She set up the open house and donated all the food as well as spent countless hours organizing all of this. SHE IS AMAZING!!! Please look at the attached picture of Chris and Barbara coming back from the Greenway to the Loudoun Office. Karen W. Brown Executive Director Brain Injury Services, Inc. 8136 Old Keene Mill Road, B-102 Springfield, Virginia 22152

Trucking Accidents

We all know that tractor-trailers are larger, heavier and have many more blind spots than cars.  If you ever drive on Interstate 81, you know that the trucks are taller than your car or truck and they are 20- 30 times heavier, too.  If you get hit by a tractor-trailer, the odds are stacked against you.  An expected result:  death or serious injury.  In a truck collision there is a 98% chance that the person in the car will be the one killed if there is a fatality (versus the tractor-trailer driver), according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
