Takata air bags linked to explosions, deaths and injuries

Air bags have been created to save lives, and they're implemented in most vehicles created today. Sometimes, there are multiple air bags that can be triggered from any angle during an accident. Unfortunately, when an air bag goes wrong, it can lead to injuries that are severe. In one crash, this point was made clear when a woman was in an accident and the air bag exploded, shooting metal shards at her. That metal became embedded into her head.

Mild blast-related brain injuries can cause brain abnormalities

Members of the United States military who serve in combat zones can often suffer serious injuries. In the case of Afghanistan and Iraq combat zones, injuries from improvised explosive devices were common. Many of those blast-related injuries led to traumatic brain injuries. A study published in NeuroImage: Clinical shows that brain abnormalities are even associated with mild TBIs.

When a medical device doesn't work as intended or ends up causing negative side effects, the device might be recalled. In some cases, the device that is recalled might not comply with the FDA's laws governing the device. There are some very important points that anyone with a medical device should know about recalls.

Seeking compensation following a surgical error

As a patient who needs surgery, you rely on your medical team to give you all the information you need about your health care options. You would want to know if you have a risk of cardiac arrest in the case of an error or if your anesthesia reacts with your body, for instance. When you aren't given all the options or a doctor makes a mistake while operating, you could suffer the consequences.

Olfactory responses may indicate brain injuries in patients

If you've been hurt in an accident, you expect a medical team to take the time to make sure you're well and on the road to recovery. Sometimes, major tests and procedures need to take place to help you along. To diagnose a condition in the brain, a CAT scan or MRI may be needed.

Get the settlement you deserve after your car accident

When you're involved in a car accident and have injuries, the last thing you probably want to do is to discuss and negotiate your case with insurance carriers.
