Filing a personal injury lawsuit is often the most effective way to secure compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and other damages caused by a car accident. Proving to the insurance company that the other driver was at fault and therefore liable for all of your damages is not easy, though. 

Civil cases like car accident claims require you to prove your case by providing a preponderance of the evidence. This is different than the proof requirements in a criminal case, which must be beyond a reasonable doubt. A preponderance of the evidence simply means that you must demonstrate that your claim is more likely true than not.

Any bump, sudden back and forth movement, jolt, or blow to the head has the potential to cause a concussion. While many concussion symptoms subside in the days and weeks following injury, the impact may last much longer for some victims.

Your workers’ compensation case has been closed, and your benefits have been decided. But what happens if your condition worsens, or you find out your disability is more serious than your doctor previously believed? Can a workers’ compensation claim be reopened?

In many cases, yes, although certain criteria must be met. Each state has its own system of laws regulating the reopening of workers’ compensation claims. We’ll go over the basics of how to reopen a workers’ compensation claim here in Kentucky, but we advise that you partner with an attorney before proceeding on your own. Workers’ compensation law is highly complicated. Reopening a workers’ compensation claim requires even more legal expertise than filing a typical claim.

If you ask most people what symptoms they associate with heart conditions, they might tell you chest pain, high blood pressure, or labored breathing. While those may be some signs that a heart attack is imminent, those three manifestations that your body is in distress are far from a comprehensive listing of symptoms someone may experience if they have cardiovascular disease or if a cardiac arrest is about to set in. 

Heart disease is one of the most common yet also misdiagnosed conditions women may develop. Cardiovascular disease, a precursor to a heart attack, trumps cancer, diabetes, and respiratory illness as the leading killer of United States women. This chronic illness claims approximately 333,000 lives annually.

What Is a Medical Error of Omission?

Published on Jun 17, 2022 at 5:26 pm in Medical Malpractice.

Much like any professional in their field, you expect your doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and any other medical team members to do everything reasonably within their command to ensure you get the best possible care.

In the case of physicians, this means that you should receive a timely and accurate diagnosis and be clearly advised of treatment options available to you. It also means that you should expect a nurse assisting a surgeon to notify them of changes in vitals and if it appears surgical tools aren’t accounted for. Nurses also have an obligation to administer medication per the doctor’s instructions.

Like most people, you probably associate work injuries with catastrophic, one-time accidents. While this is the case for some victims of workplace injuries, other victims’ injuries develop over time.

Regardless of what industry you work in, you do not have to suffer. You should be able to live your life without work-related pain limiting what you can do.
