Know your options for dealing with medical malpractice

Medical malpractice cases are often very difficult for the victims. Not only are they dealing with the physical impacts of the malpractice, they are also having to handle the emotional damage that comes from being harmed by a person they placed their trust in. We know what a difficult situation this is, so we are here to help individuals who have gone through this.

How to stop someone from driving drunk -- with or without you

If you were injured in a car accident, you may be understandably nervous about getting behind the wheel again, or your injuries may prevent you from driving for a time. Either way, you're probably relying on friends, family members and Uber or Lyft drivers to get you where you need to go.

Medical malpractice cases are often hard for the victims to handle.

Tips for being a safer highway driver

Highway driving has a number of dangers you don't experience when driving on surface streets. The increased speed limits, for example, can make it difficult to respond quickly to someone making an unexpected move. You're also more likely to encounter large trucks and other commercial vehicles than you are when driving near your home.

Substandard care might be hard to prove in a malpractice case

Patients who seek medical care expect that they will get care that's up to current standards. Unfortunately, they don't always get this. Instead, they might receive substandard care that doesn't adequately address their issues. This leaves room for the patient to suffer grave harm.

Required drug testing rate for truck drivers doubles this year

Beginning this year, more truck drivers who are using controlled substances may be taken off the roads. Starting Jan. 1, companies that employ commercial truck drivers are required to increase their minimum annual random testing rate from 25% to 50%. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which has long sought this new regulation, says the increase in testing means that over 2 million drug tests will be done this year alone.

Filing a wrongful death suit to seek justice after a fatal crash

It's easy to forget how dangerous motor vehicles really are until someone you love winds up in a tragic collision. Losing a family member in a traffic wreck can change your entire life in an instant. From the financial repercussions of that death to the emotional and social consequences of losing a relative or family member, you will have a lot to deal with in the wake of a fatal collision.

2 reasons to go to your doctor after a significant car crash

Motor vehicle collisions can easily result in catastrophic injuries to the people in the vehicles involved, as well as to nearby pedestrians. Between the idea that catastrophic injuries are obvious and the predilection of the media to display internal injuries visibly in movies and television shows, people all too often assume that if they aren't bleeding or unable to move, they aren't seriously hurt.

Issues exist with drug recalls

When you are prescribed medications or opt to use over-the-counter drugs, you expect that they are safe for consumption. Unfortunately, drug recalls are commonplace these days. While many drug recalls are for reasons that wouldn't lead to actual consumer harm, there are others that can quickly turn deadly. It is imperative that anyone who takes medications of any sort keeps an eye out for recalls of the products they take.
