Keeping records is one of the best things you can do as a victim of medical malpractice. If something goes wrong during the course of your treatment, there are a range of parties that could be at fault, including medical providers, device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and other entities involved in your care.
Head injuries are common in accidents. Car crashes for example, can happen any time, and your head is vulnerable to impact. These injures can also be particularly dangerous.
Truck accidents can cause devastating injuries. In 2015, 3,852 people died in large truck accidents across the country. Of those, 69 percent were occupants of passenger vehicles and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists.
As a motorist, it can be daunting sharing highways with large commercial vehicles. If you’re driving a car, you are likely to sustain major damage and potentially devastating injuries in an accident with a large truck.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is severe for anyone. However, for kids and teens, who are still developing cognitively and physically, a head injury can be even more devastating.
Determining whether a situation constitutes medical malpractice can be difficult. Sometimes medical procedures don’t work, or the result doesn’t come out as expected. That alone, however, is not enough to constitute medical malpractice. Healthcare professionals are not perfect.
