Determining fault in a medical malpractice case

In our previous blog post, we discussed how some superbugs seem to be linked to medical scopes. Even if the scopes were cleaned according to the manufacturer's instructions, there is still a chance that particles could still remain on the scope and put patients in danger. That fact is a stark reminder that patients are at the mercy of the doctors who are treating them and the equipment manufacturers that make the products used in medical procedures.

Superbugs might be tied to the use of medical scopes

An investigation that has been taking place over the last year has shown some shocking results that connect some cases of hospital-acquired superbugs with medical scopes. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has received figures from the Food and Drug Administration that shows that there were more cases than the previously-reported 250 cases from 2010 through 2015. In fact, the number is likely in the 300 to 350 cases range. Even that estimate is likely too low since testing for these types of antibiotic-resistant infections isn't standard in all hospitals.

Catastrophic injuries can occur in a commercial vehicle accident

Catastrophic injuries are possible when your vehicle is struck by a semi-truck. If you are a pedestrian or bicyclist who is struck, the likelihood of catastrophic injuries increases greatly. We understand that you are likely facing significant challenges because of the injuries that you suffered during the accident. We want you to know that you do have the right to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages.

Diagnostic method for concussions might be changing

The damage that a concussion can do to a person is considerable. The sad fact of the matter is that some concussions go undiagnosed because it is very difficult to get an accurate diagnosis. Oftentimes, the symptoms a person is experiencing is the primary source of information for a concussion diagnosis. Imaging tests, such as CT scans, don't show the injury.
