Yes, Alzheimer's disease is often misdiagnosed

Alzheimer's disease is a slow, degenerative disease that is often misdiagnosed. Most medical professionals skilled in eldercare or mental health should be able to identify the symptoms and take the steps necessary to identify the cause of a person's actions, whether they're odd behaviors or memory loss.

All injuries matter after a car accident

Car accidents can lead to very serious injuries. Just last week, we discussed how impacts can lead to brain injuries. That is only one example of the catastrophic injuries that can occur in these accidents. Spinal cord injuries, broken bones and other serious injuries are also possible. In all of these personal injury cases, one thing remains constant -- lives are changed because of the negligent actions of another person.

What kinds of brain injures can take place after an impact?

Brain injuries come in many forms, from concussions to hematomas. Traumatic injuries to the brain can lead to a plethora of side effects and symptoms including memory loss, amnesia, trouble with speech and others. These injuries often require ongoing medical care. Checkups and treatment can be costly. The victims may not be able to work due to symptoms, which forces them to seek out compensation for bills and lost wages.

Filing injury claims against the government

Personal injury claims against the government are complicated matters because the government typically has sovereign immunity. This means that the government and its employees aren't typically held to a standard as high as a private property owner. It also means that you have to meet the requirements of the Federal Tort Claims Act or similar local act if you plan to take action against the government.

Are businesses liable for attacks on the property?

Premises liability is an important part of running a business. Business owners know that if there is a risk, they need to take the time to assess it and address it. That's why some businesses, like malls and theme parks, are starting to pay more to prevent attacks on their properties.

Why do patients need to be aware of infection controls?

Infections can be deadly to hospital patients, which is why most medical facilities take extreme measures to keep the spread of viruses and bacteria at the absolute minimum. Keeping temperatures lower in facilities, using bleach and other chemicals that destroy viruses and bacteria and employing sterilization techniques are usually all useful when keeping patients safe.

Are excessive prescription meds putting the elderly at risk?

Despite the fact that prescription medications are supposed to improve and preserve lives, many elderly patients are now discovering that their physical health - not to mention their lives - are at risk because of these same meds.
