Spinal cord injuries can be among the most traumatic events that a person can suffer in a car accident, or when serving the country as a soldier. One training program which is a joint effort between the Department of Defense and the U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Military & Veterans Program provides wounded soldiers who have suffered from maladies such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, lost limbs or conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder the opportunity to compete in competitive sports competitions. The events that the veterans will compete in at the 2013 Warrior Games being held in Colorado Springs are geared specifically toward those with disabilities.
Car accidents in Colorado can happen in an instant. Whether it's someone who fails to follow traffic laws or becomes distracted for only a moment, car accidents can result in injuries or even deaths. A number of people were injured in a recent accident in Loveland.
