Why Pursuing Medical Malpractice Claims Is A Good Idea

A recent study found that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. The research extrapolated from data collected in previous studies and estimated that more than 250,000 Americans die each year because of mistakes in their medical care. That finding should be more than enough to inspire medical professionals to look for ways to improve. Unfortunately, the study and others like it are often dismissed in an industry stuck in its ways.

Study says doctors should tell patients about mistakes

Doctors sometimes don't want to tell patients about mistakes that have been made. They are afraid that telling the patient will spark a lawsuit, so they may keep quiet -- even if that's not the most ethical thing to do -- to try to avoid the court case.

How many crashes happen at night?

You know how common accidents are in Illinois and that you can't always avoid being involved in a crash; some experts have said that nothing the average person does is as dangerous as simply getting into the family car. If you're trying to figure out the safest times to drive, you may be interested to know that about 49 percent of the deadly accidents in the United States take place at night.

It's important to file workplace accident reports

If you're hurt on the job, don't try to tough it out and keep it to yourself. You may be embarrassed about getting hurt or tempted to think it's no big deal. However, there are some very important reasons to file the report -- one of which is that you need proof that you were injured in the first place.
