Bus crash leads to 15 injured, 1 fatality near Washington, D.C.

Car and bus accidents can be incredibly dangerous for those involved; in buses, there are often no seat belts, and the items passengers brought with them on board can easily be thrown around, causing others to be struck by luggage and other items. When these accidents happen, many people suffer the consequences, just like in this case.

Sports-related brain injuries may be helped with Q-Collar

Brain injuries can be managed in many cases, but for some, the injuries that are suffered are life-changing. Reducing brain injuries has to be a goal of those working in sports industries because players are much more likely to suffer an injury than others.

Who will be held responsible if a nurse caused my injuries?

When most people think about medical malpractice claims, it is typically a doctor's error that comes to mind. The truth is that an error by any medical professional that negatively impacts patient health can create grounds for a medical malpractice claim, including nurses and others.

Retained surgical instruments pose a serious hazard

Morcellator deaths spur proposed Medical Device Guardian's Act

For decades the medical device known as a morcellator caused the death of hundreds, if not thousands, of women by spreading undetected cancer throughout their body. Despite these deaths, hospitals and physicians did not report these issues to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In fact, it was not until 2013, when physician Amy Reed's uterine cancer spread after a morcellation procedure, that the FDA was notified. In 2014, the FDA issued a "black box" warning on the morcellator. While this warning has severely limited the morcellator's use today, the damage was already done for many.

Wage war after a semi-truck crash devestates your life

Your life after a semi truck accident will likely never be the same.

This can make it difficult to live a normal life, especially when the source of the PTSD is something that many people come into contact with on a daily basis.

Are there really ways to reduce the number of injuries due to these mistakes? Yes, and they should be implemented.

Discharge from the hospital can be a risky time for patients

Medication errors after discharge can create severe injury or death

The transition from the hospital to home, nursing home or other facility is also a critical time in a person's recovery.
