Brain Injury Awareness Month
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Doctors may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.
Most people with a concussion recover quickly and fully. But for some people, symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. In general, recovery may be slower among older adults, young children, and teens. Those who have had a concussion in the past are also at risk of having another one and may find that it takes longer to recover if they have another concussion.
Symptoms of concussion usually fall into four categories:
- Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or remembering new information
- Headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, dizziness, or balance problems
- Irritability, sadness, nervous or anxiety
- Sleeping more than usual, less than usual, or have trouble sleeping
Tips to help you get better:
- Get plenty of sleep at night, and rest during the day.
- Avoid activities that are physically demanding (e.g., sports, heavy housecleaning, working-out) or require a lot of concentration (e.g., sustained computer use, video games).
- Ask your doctor when you can safely drive a car, ride a bike, or operate heavy equipment.
- Do not drink alcohol. Alcohol and other drugs may slow your recovery and put you at risk of further injury.
There are many people who can help you and your family as you recover from a concussion. You do not have to do it alone. Keep talking with your doctor, family members, and loved ones about how you are feeling, both physically and emotionally. If you do not think you are getting better, tell your doctor.

To some, baseball is more than just a sport; it’s a way of life.
There are so many benefits of learning to play baseball. First, it is a great form of physical activity. The young player learns the fundamentals of the sport, including throwing, catching, hitting, and using proper form, while also perfecting hand-eye coordination and enhancing motor skills.
However, there is more to baseball than just the physical benefits. Relationships are built. Children learn to play the game with other kids and learn to listen to direction from coaches. Everyone has the same goal in mind and work together to accomplish that goal. They learn what it means to be on a team.
The Law Offices of Michael Cordova is honored to be a sponsor for the Madison Little League, and we urge others to consider supporting the children in our community by becoming sponsors as well. Here is to a great baseball season!

No laws in Arizona or the United States restrict the sale of aged vehicle tires. A few states have inspection laws, but they only test wear and tear of the tire’s tread. The life of a tire with regular use is about six years— however, there tire safety goes beyond tread wear and proper inflation.
Even though a used tire retailer may be willing to sell it to you, a “new” old stock tire will typically have dried-out rubber, making it more prone to blow outs and tread separation. Test data by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration proves that a tire that is more than six years old has a significantly greater chance of catastrophic tread separation than a newer tire. Unfortunately, due to the lack of regulations, used tire retailers can and often do sell tires upwards of ten years old—a clear safety hazard.
To determine the age of your tires or any used tire you may be purchasing, look for the DOT code on the sidewall of the tire. The last four numbers of this code represent the week and year the tire was manufactured. So, if the last four numbers were 0110, this would mean that the tire was manufactured in the first week of 2010.
