New York City comptroller Scott Stringer developed a program designed to identify problems regarding the city’s services in order to target areas where safety may be compromised, The New York Times reported on July 9.
The initiative is called Claimstat, which is a database that records thousands of personal injury or general negligence claims made against the city by people seeking financial compensation for accidents they believe the city is responsible for. It was patterned after the New York Police Department’s CompStat program, a tool that city police use to map out and track criminal activity, Stringer said in a report. When claims patterns are discovered, unsafe areas can be effectively targeted for maintenance.

A traumatic brain injury is an injury that affects the brain. Like other types of injuries, traumatic brain injuries can range greatly in severity, with mild injuries causing temporary side effects and the most severe causing permanent damage or brain death.
Because of the varying severity these injuries can have, different classification systems for these injuries have been developed. The three main classification systems are as follows:
- Loss of consciousness – a system that classifies injuries based on the amount of time a person is unconscious.
- Post-traumatic amnesia – a system that classifies injuries based on the amount or severity of amnesia a person experiences
- Glascow coma scale – a comprehensive system that gives victims a score from 3-15 (3 being the most severe) based on their responses to questions testing the verbal, motor, and optical functions.
To learn about traumatic brain injuries and their classifications more in-depth, check out this must know article.

Automotive manufacturer Toyota reached a deal in a sudden acceleration case in the United States last Friday after an Oklahoma jury declared the company responsible for the 2007 Camry crash that killed one woman and injured another.
As a result of the settlement, Toyota has agreed to pay around $1.6 billion in economic losses, which could include repair costs or lowered value costs, over the acceleration issues, but did not cover any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. However, the jury did order the company to pay $3 million to the victims.
According to the lawsuit, software malfunctions in the electronic throttle control system of the victim’s 2005 Camry caused the vehicle to become uncontrollable, resulting in her death in a car accident.
The Camry has not been included in Toyota’s recently issued recalls.
