Medical malpractice: what is sepsis?

Infection is always a concern in the medical field. This is because a foreign agent, whether a virus, bacteria or something else, can easily find its way into the body through a wound or incision. For this reason, New York medical professionals usually diligently work to prevent infection and the serious consequences it can have. They might consistently clean surgical incisions, provide medication to kill bacteria, and change dressings in a timely manner.

Increase in deaths related to plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is an elective procedure wherein a patient aims to address a cosmetic issue rather than a health problem. Similarly to any other type of surgery, these treatments carry risks, and it is essential for patients to understand those risks before deciding to go under the knife. 

Car accidents and contributory negligence

Nobody is perfect, even when it comes to driving. Most people have neglected to use a turn signal or have sped at one time or another. Fortunately, most of the time, these minor infractions turn out to be nothing more that small violations of the law. Sometimes, though, these driving errors can contribute to an accident. When this happens, motorists may find themselves wondering if their mistakes will prevent them from pursuing compensation from another motorist who caused the crash in question.

Competently handling workers' comp and third-party claims

Recently on this blog we discussed how construction accidents continue to increase in New York City. This sad reality means that many construction workers are at risk of being injured on the job on a daily basis. Improper safety equipment, lack of training and the negligence of others can all cause a workplace accident that results in serious injuries. If you've been hurt in one of these incidences, then you may want to consider legal action.
