Carnival Rides Bring Frills, Thrills and Catastrophic Accidents

Carnival Ride.jpgWhen the carnival comes to town, the frills, thrills and outdoor fun can come at a steep cost that is far more than the price of admission and thousands of people are seriously injured by carnival rides each year. Traveling amusement park rides are far from safe. The bright flashing lights and loud sounds often mask the dangers behind a veneer of excitement and intrigue.

Failure to Administer Medications Can Be Deadly

medications.jpgFailing to administer medications to elderly patients can have dangerous, potentially deadly consequences and nursing homes can be held liable for the injuries or deaths their negligence causes. When caregivers neglect to administer patient medications, they leave patients susceptible to a variety of complications including the formation of blood clots, the development of antibiotic resistance, unregulated blood sugars and blood pressures and more. In some cases, all it takes is one missed dose to start a deadly chain reaction that results in the patient's death. 

Understanding Erb's Palsy

If you are an Illinois expectant mother, your biggest concern undoubtedly is the health, safety and well-being of your growing baby. While you do everything possible to ensure this, you cannot control everything. Unfortunately, birth injuries can and do happen, even in the best of hospitals and birthing centers. Erb's palsy is one of these.

When Doctors Ignore End-of-Life Directives [infographic]

Physicians are obligated to follow the advanced care directives of their patients. Those who choose not to adhere to the requests of their patients can be held liable by the patient or surviving family members for the patient's pain and suffering as well as additional expenses that result. Even as knowledge of the importance of these documents spread, it is estimated that less than 75% of individuals have included these critical documents in their medical files.

When GPS Steers You Into an Accident

GPS.jpgGPS systems are not flawless and can steer motorists into automobile accidents when they fail. When this happens, the driver may be able to pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer or a negligence claim against those responsible for programming the data the device relies upon to produce directions. As more and more vehicles are equipped with GPS as standard features, accidents caused by faulty GPS systems are a growing problem that is leading to an emerging field of law.
