Evidence you gather can make a big difference in your claim

When you are involved in a car accident, taking pictures and gathering evidence isn't likely going to be at the top of your list of things to do. If you can, and if you think about doing so, you should consider taking pictures and gathering evidence because those can play a big part in your case if you opt to seek compensation.

Former wrestlers take legal action regarding brain injuries

The dangers of head injuries are widely known now. In fact, many former athletes are taking legal action against the leagues and organizations that they were associated with because of the lingering and life-altering effects that brain injuries suffered during their time as an active participant in their chosen sports caused. In fact, lawsuits against the National Football League and National Hockey League have recently come to light. You can add another professional sports league to that list -- World Wresting Entertainment.

The District of Columbia and medical malpractice: Sex abuse

Every state has its own laws and regulations on how doctors can get their licenses. They also have laws about how patients can file complaints and what kind of information can be released about the physicians involved in cases requiring discipline or legal actions.

This law prevents members of the military from getting justice after medical malpractice

More than 1.4 million people serve our country in various branches of the armed forces. Anyone who joins the military gives up certain rights. One of these rights is the ability to sue the government for injuries arising out of military service. This law, known as the Feres doctrine, protects the government from lawsuits if soldiers or sailors are injured in combat or in training. Unfortunately, the military and some courts have applied this law to acts of medical malpractice. As a result, when members of the military are injured or killed due to acts of medical malpractice, they cannot bring a lawsuit against the government.

What should parents know about birth injuries?

A child who suffers from an injury at birth might be facing a lifetime of challenges. In some cases, such as when the injury results in cerebral palsy, those challenges might be physical, mental and even social. Many times, children who suffer birth injuries require extensive care as they grow up and well into adulthood. A multitude of services, such as medical specialists, therapists and others might be necessary. For that reason, parents might opt to seek compensation for the birth injury that the child suffered.

Proactive steps can help to prevent medical malpractice

Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of deaths in America. That scary fact should be enough to make everyone who is seeking medical care to watch what is going on at each exam, appointment, test, or other medical procedure. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to reduce the likelihood that you will fall victim to this type of medical negligence.

Failure to monitor vital signs during pregnancy and delivery can have devastating consequences

At all times during a pregnancy, and especially during labor and delivery, the health of the mother and her fetus are a top priority. One of the most reliable ways to ensure that all is well with mother and child is the monitoring of their vital signs. Vital signs can provide valuable insight into any complications and give your medical team advance notice so early action can be taken.
