Aggressive advocacy needed to combat medical malpractice defenses

If you've ever been surrounded by semi-trucks and suddenly found yourself anxious, you're not alone. These massive vehicles can strike fear into the bravest amongst us, and for good reason. When driven negligently, semi-trucks can cause a massive amount of devastation. Not only can vehicles be completely destroyed in truck accidents, but victims can suffer serious injuries. The worst cases result in death. On top of that, truck accidents are more common than many individuals think.

3 reasons breast cancer is often misdiagnosed

Breast cancer is one of the most troubling forms of cancer. It is sometimes easily treated, but it is sometimes an aggressive disease that proves fatal.

One error could have a hugely detrimental impact on the life of a patient, but misdiagnoses are still common.

Aggressive advocacy needed to combat medical malpractice defenses

Pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit takes courage. It also takes a firm grasp of the law and how it applies to the facts at hand. This is because, as we discussed on the blog previously, there are a number of defenses to these types of claims.

This means that aggressive defense attorneys will do everything they can to rip apart a victim's claim, even if that means blaming the victim himself or herself.

New York construction accident kills one, injures another

New York City is a hotbed of construction. Just about any time of year, men and women go to work to build and repair our city and our state's roadways and buildings. These workers shouldn't need to worry about their safety, but the sad truth of the matter is that some of these individuals are injured on the job. Being hurt in a construction accident can have serious consequences for those who are harmed, as they may suddenly need to find a way to deal with unexpected medical expenses and lost wages. This is unfair, which is why these individuals are encouraged to seek out workers' compensation benefits.
