Brain Injury Network Policy dated 9-8-13

We find it highly objectionable and unethical that certain attorneys are seeking out individuals with acquired brain injuries (from tbi, etc.), are enticing them to publically share their stories on the attorneys’ websites and blogs, and are further distributing said stories to other social media such as Facebook and YouTube. Also: The Attorney-Client Relationship. Informed Consent and Mental Competency. Commercial Solicitation for Attorney’s Business Services. Recommendations to the American Bar Association (ABA), the State Bar Associations, Ethics and Professional Conduct Advisory Committees, and Legal Ethicists.

Public Policy Statement of the Brain Injury Network dated 6-8-13

Prohibition on Use of Communication Devices While Driving or Bicycling

The Brain Injury Network supports laws everywhere that will help prevent acquired brain injuries. Driving, or operating vehicles (e.g. automobiles, buses, boats, tractors, trains, and scooters), or bicycling requires concentration. Driving while distracted leads to many serious and fatal accidents and therefore represents a substantial risk to public safety. People who use electronic communication devices while they drive, operate other conveyances, or bicycle are endangering themselves and the public at large. Leading causes of distracted driving include talking on handheld or hands-free phones and cell phones, and text messaging while driving.

Therefore we support any driving or bicycling distracted driver laws that prevent the use of handheld or hands-free phones or cell phones, and also other communication devices (e.g. text messaging electronic devices) that enable one to write, send, or read messages while one is driving a motor vehicle; operating heavy machinery, a boat, a ship, a train, a scooter, or other such motorized conveyance; or while one is bicycling.
