How to survive a serious car accident.How to survive a serious car accident.

 

Being involved in a car accident can be a life threatening experience that can may leave physical, emotional and psychological scars for many years or even decades to come.

 

However these injuries do not have necessarily have to fatal or forever debilitating.

 

You can survive a serious car accident by taking just a few common safety precautions ahead of a car crash.

 

  1. Wearing a seatbelt has been scientifically proven through research to reduce physical injury in the event of a car accident. When worn properly, seat belts help to reduce the level and distribution of impact energy on the human body by minimizing the space in which our organs can move during an accident. Not only do seat belts prevent us from exiting unexpectedly through a vehicle's windshield during an accident, they also help to control the violent movement of internal organs during a sudden accident. These forces are often the primary cause of serious injury in an accident as the organs are damaged from high levels of sudden violent energy and movement.
  2. Practice proper posture at all time when operating or as a passenger in a motor vehicle. As with any machine, a car has proper and improper operating instructions. For most vehicles, this means sitting in upright forward facing position. While sitting posture and form are often overlooked, it should be noted that automakers have designed vehicles with driver and passenger safety in mind. The position of your body at the time of impact in the event of a car accident can have a significant impact on your level of injuries.

 

Stay calm, after an accident, you may feel heightened levels of stress and anxiety. While this may be a normal reaction, it could in fact increase the risk of injury post accident via stress related injuries such as heart attack. Relax, stay calm as possible and avoid panicking.

 

 

A lawsuit against Sean "Diddy" Combs has been bolstered by four witnesses who allegedly saw the music mogul commit assault in Los Angeles last year.

The four new witnesses all allege they saw Combs physically attack real-estate agent Gerard Rechnitzer at a Los Angeles party following last year's Academy Awards show, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

While Combs has not been the target of any criminal charges from the incident, Rechnitzer has since sued the "Making the Band" star.

Witness Michael Sherman alleges he saw Diddy punch the 27-year-old agent during the celebration last February at the Roosevelt Hotel.

"All of a sudden, (Diddy) hit him. And there was a taxi behind Gerard. Gerard got knocked into the taxi," Sherman alleged.

The other witnesses offered similar accounts of the incident and their testimonies should help bolster Rechnitzer's civil suit, the Daily News reported.

Combs' attorney has called the suit "completely baseless" and said the singer is not legally responsible for the incident.

Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

 

 

Lawsuit Claims Brooklyn's Poly Prep Covered Up Sexual Abuse by Iconic Football Coach Foglietta

 

Nine former students have accused Brooklyn’s elite Poly Prep Country School of covering up prolonged sexual abuse of dozens of players by Phil Foglietta, the once iconic football coach who served from 1966 to 1991. The sexual abuse lawsuit filed in 2009 claims that the school authorities started receiving complaints ever since Foglietta joined as coach, but did not act against him because of successful coaching and fund-raising accomplishments he had at Poly Prep during his four-decade tenure. A similar lawsuit filed against the school in 2004 was dismissed because of the statute of limitations. But the present lawsuit makes an attempt to invoke the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act to bring a claim against the 157-year-old highly admired school.

 

 

The nine plaintiffs named in the sexual abuse lawsuit were sexually exploited by Foglietta more than once when they were members of Poly Prep football team between 1966 and 1981. David Hiltbrand, one of the victims, has disclosed to the media how he and a number of other students were sexually assaulted by Foglietta during the shower at the coaches’ locker room. Foglietta worked as both football coach and physical instructor at Poly Prep between 1966 and 1991. He died seven years later. According to the sexual abuse lawsuit, he sexually assaulted hundreds of students in cars, locker rooms, apartments, other places, and on squash courts, but the school authorities covered up complaints and even threatened to expel those who would report abuses.

David Harman, headmaster at Poly Prep, board of trustees, and a number of former present school officials have been named defendants in the sexual abuse lawsuit. The plaintiffs have sought $20 million for each victim in punitive damages and compensation.
