Determining cause in a semitruck crash is important

Semitruck crashes pit a large, heavy vehicle against a much smaller and lighter one. This can lead to considerable injuries to the occupants of the personal vehicles. When this happens, the injured individuals will need to seek medical care, which can end up being a costly endeavor. They might opt to pursue a claim for compensation to help them recover the damages they're having to cover.

What are common reasons why medications end up getting recalled?

Most medications undergo rigorous testing before they're released on the market here in the United States. Government oversight over these prescription drugs doesn't end once they're made available to the public though. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to monitor medications for potential problems. They keep a log of any reports that are made to them. The FDA may recall a drug if they fear that it may pose a safety hazard.

How common are wrong site, procedure or patient errors?

Medical malpractice is a far too common occurrence in the United States. It may surprise you to learn about one common mistake that doctors make though. It's a wrong body part, site, procedure or patient error. Instances such as these are commonly known as "never events" because there's no excuse or justification for them to ever happen under any circumstances.

Alcohol can impair drivers in different ways

Drunk driving wrecks are fully preventable because the driver didn't have to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, innocent people are injured and killed every day by impaired drivers. It's imperative that anyone who is drinking alcohol understands the ways that it can affect their ability to drive safely.

Wrong-way crash kills 20-year-old Louisiana man, driver charged

Probably the most frightening thing you can encounter on a Louisiana highway is a driver who is traveling in the wrong direction toward you. That nightmare scenario killed a 20-year-old Morganza man earlier this month. A 26-year-old man, also from Morganza, has been charged with negligent homicide.

COVID-19 and widespread denials of business interruption coverage

Since the stay-at-home orders began in March, non-essential businesses have taken significant hits to their bottom line. With nowhere to turn for assistance, apart from temporary federal relief, business owners are looking to their insurance companies for help.

Truckers aren't always at fault for semitruck wrecks

Most truckers operate their rigs in a safe manner because they understand the risks of aggressive behaviors when they're behind the wheel. It's important for anyone who suffers an injury in a big rig crash to remember that there's a chance that it wasn't the trucker's fault. There are many causes of these wrecks that can come into the picture.

Improper care in the emergency department can cause harm

Individuals who seek medical care in an emergency room may be experiencing something life-threatening. They don't need to have to deal with unnecessary delays in care or a lax standard of care when they do this because there can be serious consequences in these cases.
