Pop Warner makes changes to decrease the chances of head injuries

Hundreds of thousands of kids who play Pop Warner football will be playing by a new set of rules this season. The new rules are intended to create more safeguards against the increasing number of concussions/head injuries suffered by kid under the age of 12. I have posted a number of pieces over the last year or so revealing the incredible statistics that are being released about the severity of concussion syndrome.

Boy awarded $1.1 million in medical malpractice lawsuit

The family of a boy who suffered a brain injury after surgery to correct his sleep apnea has been awarded $1.1 million by a Pennsylvania jury.

Crib tent recalled after 1 baby died and another was injured

It is always a tragedy when a child is hurt due to an accident. When the injury is caused by a defective product, a parent's frustration may be compounded. In recent years, it seems that it has been all too common for children's products to be the subject of recalls and complaints to agencies such as the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission.
