Failure to diagnose can worsen medical conditions

Most Massachusetts's residents go to their doctors because a medical professional can offer him or her medical guidance and improve an ailment. We take what our doctors have to say for granted, assuming that they will be acting in our best interest. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Though we often forget it, doctors are also humans and this means they also make mistakes. Their mistakes, however, can lead to a worsened medical condition rather than an improved one.

What are some common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Even those Massachusetts' residents who do not have motorbikes have to admit-when they see a motorcyclist going down the road in front of them, the wind in their hair and the world at their feet, a little part of them wishes they were also on that bike. With the few summer months finally upon us, it is common to see motorcyclists on the road, enjoying the weather and avoiding the traffic when possible.

What is the statute of limitations?

Readers of the Salem personal injury law blog may be aware that they can file a personal injury lawsuit against someone who has caused their accident. Whether it was caused in a car accident or truck crash or by a medical professional's malpractice, it is possible to hold a party accountable for your harms. However, individuals may not know that time is of the essence in these situations, meaning the claim must be filed within a certain time limit otherwise a valid claim may be time barred.

Why are there more crashes in the summer?

School has been out for some time, and Massachusetts' drivers may have noticed that there are more cars on the road, especially those vehicles driven by teenagers. Now that they no longer spend their days in school and afternoons studying, teenagers are out and about enjoying their summer vacation. This means that not only are there more cars on the road, it also means there are relatively inexperienced drivers behind the wheel going on unfamiliar routes. This can cause car accidents-in fact accident numbers spike during the timeframe from Memorial Day to Labor Day, known as the 100 deadliest days of summer for teens.

Chemical restraint is more convenient for nursing home staff

If you have an elderly parent in a nursing home, you may take for granted that the staff looks out for your loved one's best interests and well-being. This may be especially important to you if your parent's progressing Alzheimer's is the primary reason why you chose that facility in the first place. You may know first-hand how important it is that the nursing staff carefully monitor your parent for his or her own safety.
