More PG&E Equipment Fails; Man Electrocuted Trying To Protect His Family

Recently, in San Mateo California a PG&E high voltage power line fell from a pole and onto a residential street, draping itself across the sidewalk and the street and private property, sparking and burning.  When Enrique Tello, a local resident who had been watching television with his family heard the explosion and the lights went out, he went outside to investigate. Within moments, Mr. Tello was electrocuted. Unfortunately, PG&E is trying to shift blame onto this 55-year-old man who was killed while trying to protect his family. I am concerned that PG&E has already begun a campaign of misinformation about…

As a San Francisco Brain Injury Attorney, I am always interested in new studies on brain injury recovery research. I also try to help my brain injured clients by providing current information on brain injury topics. Recently I learned that researchers report to have found the first treatment to speed recovery from severe brain injuries caused by falls and car crashes. The remedy is a cheap flu medicine,amantadine, an inexpensive generic, whose side benefits were discovered accidentally decades ago in the treatment of Parkinson’s symptoms–found to have an effect on the brain’s dopamine system, affecting movement and alertness. The…

CDC Report on Steps to Prevent Mild Traumatic Brain Injury in the U.S.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is known as a silent epidemic because the problems that result from TBI are often not visible.  Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) accounts for at least 75% of all traumatic brain injuries in the U.S.  However, it is clear that the consequences of MTBI can be severe and cause life-long disability and deficits. As a San Francisco Brain Injury Attorney, I agree with the CDC’s report to the U.S. Congress on MTBI and support the recommended steps to help with this serious public health issue. The CDC‘s MTBI Work Group, composed of experts in…

Popularity of Bicycling and Walking Rising in U.S. by City and State

A recent study just came out regarding the statistics on bicycle riding and walking city by city and state by state in the U.S. Living in the usually sunny (not today) San Francisco Bay Area I cannot imagine what it’s like to bike or walk to work in Alaska–the state ranked with the highest number of bicycle and pedestrian commuters–as that seems cold. But maybe driving in snowy conditions is just too dangerous in Alaska so they make everything very close. I remember one town in Alaska had all of the apartments and the stores and the other businesses all…

Early Dawn Bicycle Accident South of Market at 5th St & Harrison St

One might think that heading out early in the morning is the safer way to travel the busy city streets of San Francisco by bicycle–with less cars on the road–but unfortunately early this morning a 26-year-old bicyclist was hit by a truck. According to the police the cyclist did not have a light on his bicycle, despite the darkness of the early dawn morning, as he rode south on 5th Street getting hit at 6:28 a.m. by a pickup truck that was turning left at Harrison Street. Thankfully, the bicyclist survived getting hit by the truck, and suffered non-life-threatening…
