New research examines surgeon disclosure after a surgical error

Surgical procedures can be intimidating and worrisome enough for Illinois patients and their families without having to consider the potential for medical malpractice. Research is ongoing to determine the cause of surgical errors and how they should be dealt with when they occur. However, one concern that is frequently overlooked is whether or not medical professionals are honest with patients and their families after a mistake has been made. It is required that information be given to patients, but this is often ignored.

Man killed in fatal drunk driving accident

When there is a car crash in Cook County with injuries and fatalities, one of the first steps that investigators will take is to try to determine how the accident happened. In some instances, an automobile accident occurs due to circumstances beyond the control of the drivers. In others, however, there was a driver who got behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs. When there is a fatal drunk driving accident, the family who lost a loved one will want answers that could help them with a legal case.

U.S. still ranks high in statistics for a fatal car accident

Drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians in Illinois should be keenly aware of the dangers on the road and how much damage can be done if they are involved in a car accident. In some instances, these crashes are so severe that they result in a death. Researchers are constantly trying to find out why these accidents occur in an effort to reduce their frequency. One particular report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that there are more fatal car accidents in the United States than in other countries described as "high-income."

Unqualified VA staff tested many veterans for brain injury

For military veterans in Illinois and across the country, treatment for illnesses, injuries and conditions that came about due to being in the armed forces have become a frequent topic of discussion. Sadly, there is not enough attention paid to those who placed their lives on the line to defend their country. Also, the VA is often cited for making various mistakes in diagnosing and treating patients. Those who believe that they have been subjected to medical malpractice at the hands of a negligent VA doctor need to know their rights, as can be seen by one recently released report.
