Staying Safe on Snowy & Icy Winter Roads

Parked Cars On A Snowstorm Winter DayAs the winter weather continues to pummel portions of the country, we must be prepared to drive on snowy and icy roads. The winter season is one of the most dangerous times of the year for drivers across the country, especially when it comes to driving in the middle of a winter storm. The more you know about staying safe, the better off you will be when you hit the roads during a snow or ice storm.

Utilize a Winter Survival Kit

You should make sure there is enough room in the trunk of your car for a winter survival kit. The kit should include a blanket, an ice scraper, gloves, a hat, a flashlight with extra batteries, a shovel, salt, and jumper cables. You should check the contents of the kit each winter and make sure the flashlight and cables still work so you are not left out in the cold.

Clean Your Car

A handful of states have laws that require motorists to clean their vehicles before driving them during the winter months. This means that they must be free of snow and ice before hitting the roads. When a vehicle travels at a high rate of speed with snow still on it, the snow will blow off the car and potentially blind other drivers. Make sure to clean all the snow off your car, even the roof, before heading out this winter.

Take Care on Bridges and Overpasses

Motorists tend to forget that bridges and overpasses freeze quicker than normal roads. This is the reason that signs are posted stating, “Bridge ices before road.” Motorists who forget this will continue at the same speed over a bridge or overpass, running into potential problems such as sliding or spinning out on the road.

Avoid Cruise Control

Never use cruise control when driving on wet, snowy, or icy roads during the winter months. It has become commonplace for many motorists to use cruise control on long trips or when driving to and from work. It prevents you from speeding and keeps your legs from becoming fatigued. If you use cruise control during the winter months, you run the risk of making a skid much worse. When a vehicle spins while on cruise control, the wheels will spin rapidly because cruise control will still attempt to maintain the set speed. You can avoid this issue by not using cruise control until the weather turns warmer.

Leave Extra Space between Vehicles

Outside of the winter months, it is important to leave enough following distance between vehicles. It is important to add extra space to that during the winter months. Tailgating during the winter can lead to fender benders or even major accidents.

Some winter accidents involving tailgating are not serious, but serious injuries can occur while dealing with the accident as other vehicles could slide or plow into you while on the side of the road.

Causes of Drug and Defective Medical Device Injuries

Pharmaceutical IndustryNo matter that drugs and medical devices are FDA approved, they still may be defective and dangerous.  The FDA approval process is not a rigorous as many people believe There are various causes of drug and defective medical device injuries.

Contamination

Contamination can become a major issue when dealing with drugs or defective medical devices. This does not happen often, but when it does, the injuries to patients can be devastating. Injuries include infections, intense pain, issues with vision, hearing loss, and sometimes even death.

If drugs become contaminated, specifically with fungal mold, patients who take the drugs can become ill. In a recent outbreak, steroid users were infected with bacterial meningitis due to fungal mold, which resulted in serious injuries and some deaths.

Medical devices can be contaminated if they are not sterilized properly or sterilized before they are implanted into a patient. For example, many tools used by a doctor are not thrown away. They are reused multiple times after being sterilized. If they are not sterilized properly, patients could be subject to infections.

Errors in Manufacturing

It is all too common for manufacturing errors to occur during the production of drugs and medical devices.

At times, drugs can be mixed with the incorrect amount of an ingredient or with the wrong ingredient completely. When it comes to medical devices, a mistake might have been missed in the manufacturing process that leads to injuries or the wrongful death of patients.

For example, thousands of patients were injured when their Stryker metal on metal hip implants malfunctioned.  The design of metal on metal hips released particles of heavy metals into the blood that caused intense pain chronic inflammation and degradation of bone.

Safety Testing Not up to Par

Another common cause of drug and defective medical device injuries is that of inadequate safety testing. The laws in the United States allow drugs and medical devices to skip the safety testing process if it can be proven that they are similar to drugs and medical devices that are already approved for the market. When this happens, the items that find their way onto the market without safety testing could be harmful to users.

Inadequate Instructions

In some instances, inadequate instructions can lead to drug and medical device injuries. Sometimes, the manufacturer of the drug or medical device does not provide the correct instructions or warnings so that the public will know how to properly use the items.

Design Defects

When medical devices are being designed, it is possible that a flaw could be missed by the manufacturer. If this occurs, the public can be hurt by the design flaw. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure the safety of users.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective drug or medical device, contact the law offices of Carey, Danis & Lowe by filling out our contact form or by calling 877-678-3400 and we will be in touch within 24 hours.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Health Professional Showing Medical ReportsWhen proper medical care is not provided to a patient, it can result in medical malpractice, which is typically committed by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional. It is a rare occurrence for doctors or nurses to make mistakes, but when they do, the same types of mistakes are often made.

In order to prove that medical malpractice has occurred, the victim has to show that the health care provider breached the standard of care of what a careful health care provider would do in the same or similar circumstance led to the injury that occurred. The victim will also need to prove that there was a doctor-patient relationship present when the malpractice occurred.

Delayed or Misdiagnosis

A common type of medical malpractice is that of a delayed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis of a patient’s condition. These issues account for a large amount of medical malpractice cases because they result in patients missing treatments that might have been able to prevent serious illness or even death.

In order to prove medical malpractice in a delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis case, the patient must be able to prove what the treating doctor did differently than another doctor acting  within the standard of care would have done and that there would have been a difference in the outcome.

Surgery Errors

We have all heard the horror stories on the news and on television shows where patients go in for surgery and instead of having their health problem corrected, they suffer permanent injuries from the surgery or complications from the surgery. Some complications are the risk of the procedure and are not the result of negligence.  Others are the result of the doctor or nurses not following the proper procedures during the surgery.

Surgical errors that are rare but do occur include operating on the wrong part of the body, puncturing internal organs during the procedure, or nurses or hospital staff not overseeing the post operative care leading to postoperative complications becoming permanent injuries.  These include failure to monitor oxygen saturations, failure monitor for signs of infection and many others.

Medication Errors

Medication errors are all too common a problem in the United States, with more than one million people harmed per year by medication errors. Medication errors occur in multiple forms, but the most common errors include a doctor writing the wrong dosage on the prescription or a medical professional who administers the medication providing too much and overdosing the patient.

Another type of medication error occurs when the doctor writes a prescription for a  medication  but the person filling the prescription misreads it and provides the wrong medication with a similar name.

In a more rare instance, the machine filling the prescription could malfunction, causing a higher dosage of medicine to be dispensed into the bottle without the knowledge of the doctor, nurse, or patient.

Injuries during Childbirth

Childbirth injuries are another form of medical malpractice that can lead to serious birth defects or even death. Some of the most common forms of childbirth injuries include the following:

  • Cerebral palsy (usually the result of a hypoxic brain injury)
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Fractured bones
  • Klumpke’s palsy

Medical malpractice can occur before childbirth, which is termed prenatal care. Doctors and nurses can make mistakes with the prenatal care of the patient by failing to diagnose any issues or illnesses with the pregnancy. These include preeclampsia, hypoglycemia, Rh incompatibility, gestational diabetes, and anemia.

Stryker Pays Out Over $1 Billion for Hip Replacement Lawsuits

Xray of Hip ReplacementStryker Corporation, which is a manufacturer of medical devices, has paid out more than $1 billion for lawsuits filed by patients who required revision surgery due to faulty hip replacements. The announcement of the settlement was made in early November 2014 in the Bergen County Courthouse in New Jersey. Superior Court Judge Brian Martinotti presided over the announcement.

The proposed agreement states that each patient who underwent revision surgery will receive $300,000. Stryker was forced to issue a worldwide recall of the hip implants in 2012 after 4,000 patients in 39 states filed lawsuits in both New Jersey state court and in U.S. federal court in Minnesota before District Judge David Frank.

The devices that caused the most issues in the lawsuits and that were eventually recalled were the ABG II and Rejuvenate metal-on-metal hip replacements. The patients who filed the lawsuits claimed that the hip replacements released metal particles into their blood and tissue. This caused swelling, intense pain, and other problems that required revision surgery in order to replace the implants.

Terms of the Stryker Settlement

Stryker was able to reach a settlement in the case before it went to trial, which might have saved the company millions of dollars despite the settlement hitting $1.4 billion. Per the terms of the settlement, any hip replacement patient who underwent revision surgery for the Rejuvenate or ABG II device before November 3, 2014, is eligible for money from the settlement. This includes patients who have not yet filed a claim, but had the revision surgery before the November 3, 2014 cutoff date.

As of right now, each patient is allotted close to $300,000 in the settlement. However, if a patient had to undergo multiple revision surgeries, he or she could be in line for a higher payout. If a patient had more severe injuries, such as a heart attack, a stroke, a foot drop, or death, he or she could see the payout increase to as much as $600,000.

Per the settlement agreement, patients who did not have revision surgery because it is too risky might also be eligible for a payout. Patients who did not have the surgery include people who are older or sickly. These patients could see a payout of close to $210,000, which is a 30% reduction in the award.

Stryker has said that it hopes to issue the majority of its payments in the settlement by the end of 2015. Any patient who is not happy with the payout terms in the settlement can opt out of the agreement and pursue their claim against Stryker in court.

Injuries That Cause Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder consisting of a number of symptoms that can limit physical movement or speech. In most cases, children are born with the disorder from an unknown cause. In other cases, medical negligence played a role in the development of cerebral palsy before, during, or after the birth.

Injuries That Can Lead to Cerebral Palsy

Injuries that can lead to the development of cerebral palsy usually involve some form of brain trauma. Pregnancy and birth-related injuries may involve:

  • The failure to diagnose or properly treat certain pregnancy conditions, such as a prolapsed umbilical cord
  • The failure to diagnose or properly treat certain physical illnesses or infections during pregnancy
  • The failure to adequately monitor fetal heart rate during labor and birth
  • The mismanagement of the birth of a baby too large for the birth canal
  • Negligent use of medical equipment
  • The failure to perform a Cesarean section once the surgery is deemed necessary

Birth-Related Causes

When a baby’s brain is deprived of oxygen for a period of time, cerebral palsy can result. This can occur during the birthing process, particularly if a baby is too large to travel through the birth canal or if the umbilical cord becomes prolapsed. A prolapsed umbilical cord means the baby’s weight or position compresses the cord, diminishing the flow of oxygen from the mother to the baby.

An emergency Cesarean section may be necessary in these situations. At this point, doctors need to move quickly to perform the procedure in order to stop the oxygen deprivation as soon as possible. If the medical team failed to see the prolapsed cord or properly monitor the fetal heart rate, which can alert them to a problem, the Cesarean section may not be performed in time to prevent the brain damage associated with cerebral palsy.

Pregnancy-Related Causes

If a pregnant woman has an illness or infection, such as chickenpox, meningitis, or rubella, and the condition is not diagnosed or treated appropriately, the infections can cause cerebral palsy in the fetus. Similarly, exposure to certain chemicals during pregnancy can affect the brain development of a fetus. Proper treatment or an adequate warning about the chemical’s potential to harm a developing fetus may have protected the baby from cerebral palsy.

The Bottom Line

Cerebral palsy is not always the result of medical negligence. Sometimes, despite adequate quality prenatal and delivery care, a baby may still be diagnosed with the condition. In other cases, however, medical care was not provided with the standard of care expected by physicians, nurses, and hospitals. The failure to detect potentially harmful conditions for the fetus that could compromise the level of oxygen in the brain leaves a family coping with a life-changing disorder for the rest of that child’s life.

The Good Samaritan Law

When an emergency happens, the first responders that arrive at the scene are protected by the Good Samaritan law. This protection is not extended to emergency-room staff. Instead, it provides legal protection to those who are first to respond to an emergency in a volunteer or professional capacity, such as firefighters, ambulance crews, and paramedics.

The Good Samaritan Law

In general, people are not legally obligated to help in an emergency. The Good Samaritan Law is a state law designed to encourage people to help someone in need of emergency care and to keep emergency services intact. Due to malpractice lawsuits, some first responders may feel reluctant to intervene for fear of being sued later on for an unintentional injury or death.

The Good Samaritan Law states that as long as the first responder provides reasonable care to the person in need of medical attention, they are not otherwise held accountable for mistakes the same way hospitals and hospital staff are. Since emergencies often require quick responses and on-the-spot treatment for patient survival, the law recognizes that the chances for error are higher than in a normal hospital setting.

Managing an Emergency

When first responders arrive at the scene of an emergency, it is good practice to approach the injured person and ask permission to provide care. If the person is unable to communicate due to unconsciousness, it is expected that the first responders will assume a duty to rescue and that consent is implied. Thus, any life-saving measures or care should be initiated accordingly.

Exceptions to the Protection of the Good Samaritan Law

There are exceptions to the protection the Good Samaritan Law provides to first responders. In the event that a first responder behaves with gross negligence or recklessness and causes further injury or death to the person in need of medical attention, then accountability will be assigned to the negligent party. Negligence is gauged by the determination of whether another person of the same skill and education in similar circumstances would have responded in the same way or not. Protection may also be affected if the first responder helped with the intention of collecting a financial reward instead of providing care out of kindness.

The Bottom Line

People in emergency situations require immediate medical attention. First responders play an important part of providing care to a patient. The Good Samaritan Law protects first responders from mistakes made during emergency care. Exceptions to the immunity include:

  • Blatant reckless behavior
  • Gross negligent behavior
  • Behavior that causes intentional harm

Safe Travels During the Holidays

Traveling during the holidays can fuel the excitement for the pending celebrations and family members that will be at the destination. However, overcrowded roadways, inclement weather, and negligent driving can pose serious risks for increased vehicle crashes. A few simple precautions can reduce your risk of being involved in a holiday accident.

Prepare for Long-Distance Travel

A properly maintained vehicle is more likely to make it to the destination without incident. Before putting the car on the road, have the tires, wipers, fluids, and oil checked, pack emergency supplies, and make sure maps or a navigation system is available for directions. The driver should pull over when studying a GPS or map to avoid distracted driving. Schedule stops along the way to avoid eating while driving or becoming fatigued, which has also been linked to car accidents.

Exercise Caution While Driving

All drivers have a duty of reasonable care to other drivers and pedestrians. Travel during the holiday season warrants even more caution due to driving conditions that are not present at other times of the year. Overcrowded roads, speeding vehicles, and ice and snow can contribute to hazardous driving conditions and increased accidents. To help avoid being involved in an accident, do the following:

  • Drive during less crowded times, such as early morning or late at night
  • Keep a safe distance from a leading car
  • Follow legal speed limits
  • Stay alert and pull over when fatigue may compromise driving
  • Abstain from alcohol and other substances before and during driving
  • Properly secure items in the back of a truck or on a trailer
  • Create an emergency plan with the passengers in the vehicle in case of an accident

Do Not Participate in Negligent Driving

Be a responsible driver. Distracted driving can be as dangerous as driving while under the influence. When driving, avoid:

  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Texting
  • Watching videos
  • Arguing with a passenger
  • Changing radio stations or manipulating the volume
  • Reading maps
  • Turning to talk to someone in the backseat
  • Traveling with an active, loose animal that could interfere with driving
  • Allowing children to toss toys or move about the vehicle

Understanding Whiplash

A driver sits in his car at a red light waiting for the signal to change, when suddenly his vehicle is struck from behind by another vehicle. The force of the collision is so strong the driver of the first vehicle is jerked backward and then forward in a violent way. After the automobile accident, the driver of the first vehicle emerges from his car with pain and stiffness in his neck. He is experiencing the very first signs of whiplash.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury to the neck often resulting from a rear-end automobile accident or other trauma to the neck. Whiplash will often occur when there is any kind of forceful impact, causing the head to jerk backward and then forward. It is said that the term “whiplash” is actually derived from the word whip, in the sense that a person’s head is forced backward and forward in the same motion as the cracking of a whip.

The symptoms of whiplash can range from very severe to very mild, depending on the nature of the event causing the injury. It is very common for whiplash victims to first opt for over the counter pain relievers to address their symptoms of neck pain and stiffness. If pain continues beyond a few weeks, patients often find prescription medications and physical therapy helpful.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Most people experience neck pain and stiffness, headaches at the base of the skull, dizziness, memory problems, ringing in the ears, problems sleeping, and general irritability as a result of whiplash. While these symptoms may dissipate within a short period of time, it is highly recommended that the victim see a physician if:

  1. The pain spreads to the arms and/or shoulders
  2. Moving the head is painful
  3. Numbness or tingling is felt and/or there is a feeling of weakness in the arms

What Causes Whiplash?

The most common cause of whiplash is automobile accidents, particularly those involving a rear-end collision. Another circumstance that often gives rise to whiplash is physical abuse. When a person is punched or is shaken, whiplash is often among the resulting injuries. Whiplash is very often caused when a baby is excessively shaken; this is called “Shaken Baby Syndrome.” Another type of activity that can cause whiplash is contact sports. Sports, such as football, involving forceful tackling and collisions of bodies, can frequently cause whiplash.

Who Is Most Vulnerable to Whiplash?

Because whiplash involves a trauma to the neck, women tend to suffer injury more easily and more often than men because a female’s neck is less strong than that of a male. However, because men engage in activities such as contact sports more frequently than women, they too suffer their share of whiplash cases.

Diagnostic Testing for Whiplash

Although diagnostic tests are routinely conducted after an injury to the neck has been sustained, it is very common for tests to show no injury even when the victim is experiencing pain. Such tests include X-rays, CT scans, and MRI examinations.

Treatment for Whiplash

While treatment for whiplash will usually involve prescription medication for pain, injections and muscle relaxants may also be used, if necessary, to relieve muscle spasms. Therapeutic use of ice and heat is also helpful to help facilitate healing of the neck injury. Additional types of therapy include manual therapy, including myofascial release, ultrasound, and stretching and strengthening exercises. When using ice and heat, the best results are usually achieved where ice is applied immediately after the injury has occurred to reduce inflammation, whereas heat will help immediately prior to physical therapy to relax the muscles. As the pain dissipates, stretching exercises will help to restore the full range of motion to the neck.

Trucker Fatigue: Asleep at the Wheel

The push for commercial truck drivers to prioritize productivity rather than employee safety has put drivers behind the wheel who are experiencing extreme fatigue and sleep-deprivation. Driving under these conditions creates hazardous driving conditions that could potentially harm the driver and other motorists on the road. Driving while fatigued and falling asleep at the wheel is the leading cause of commercial truck driving accidents despite new federal regulations designed to promote safer driving on roadways.

New Federal Regulations

In 2013, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued safety regulations for implementation throughout the truck driving industry. Often, truck drivers are pressured to drive for long periods of time to maintain steady productivity. Low wages can also encourage drivers to stay on the road in order to accumulate hours for a better paycheck. The new regulations aim to decrease the traffic accidents involving fatigued drivers. These changes include:

  • Commercial truck drivers may not work more than 70 hours per week.
  • A 34-hour period of rest is required for truck drivers following a 70-hour work week, including sleep for maintaining good health.
  • For every 8 hours of work, the truck driver must take a 30-minute break from driving duties. This provides opportunities to break up long periods of driving and will decrease episodes of unfocused driving.

Legal Ramifications for Disregarding the Federal Regulations

Commercial truck driving companies and drivers will be penalized if driving expectations are not followed according to the safety regulations of 2013. Fines up to $11,000 for exceeding legal driving limits may be incurred. Specific drivers may be forced to pay over $2,000 in fines for repeated offenses.

When fatigued drivers get on the road, they pose significant risk to other vehicles. These trucks can weigh 80,000 pounds and could be carrying hazardous materials. If the driver exceeds the driving limits and falls asleep at the wheel, it could result in a catastrophic accident. In light of the new federal regulations, this behavior could be deemed negligent.

Legal Action

If a commercial truck is involved in a serious accident due to fatigue or falling asleep while driving, and the driver did not heed the new federal regulations, then legal action may be warranted. Victims of this type of accident could be eligible for compensation. The attorneys at Carey, Danis & Lowe are well-versed in commercial driving laws and are proficient in managing accident cases of this magnitude. Laws and regulations are designed to protect the general public, and if the driving industry chooses to disregard the duty to keep roadways safe, then Carey, Danis & Lowe will protect the rights of the victim. People have the right to expect other drivers to exercise caution and drive responsibly, particularly commercial truck drivers who receive special training in operating large vehicles. If an accident occurs with a commercial truck and it is possible that the driver was seriously fatigued, asleep upon impact or if the driver’s cooperation with federal regulations concerning driving limits needs to be investigated, contact Carey, Danis & Lowe today for a consultation.

Types of Medical Malpractice

The concept of medical malpractice may make an interesting twist to a TV drama, but no one hopes to experience medical malpractice. Malpractice, also known as medical negligence, occurs when a medical expert provided inadequate medical care that directly resulted in the physical injury of a patient. Medical incompetence may be the result of inexperience or the careless mistake of a fatigued doctor. Incidents of malpractice can occur in a variety of medical settings and for a variety of reasons.

What Constitutes Medical Negligence?

For medical negligence or malpractice to be established, proof must be available that indicates the inept, inappropriate or negligent behavior of the medical expert that resulted in the harming of a patient. The behavior must fail to meet the expected standard of medical care, meaning another medical expert of similar education and experience would not have deemed the behavior appropriate for the medical circumstances.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical errors range in severity and commonality. Thus, some forms of negligence are more harmful and more prevalent than others. Common types of malpractice include:

  • A diagnostic error, such as a delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis: This is the leading cause of malpractice incidents. It can result in inadequate, inappropriate or unnecessary treatments and could put the patient at increased risk of developing a serious disorder if a condition is not diagnosed.
  • Prenatal or childbirth-related injuries, such as cerebral palsy, broken bones or the failure to diagnose a condition in mother or baby: The failure to diagnose may occur during pregnancy or following birth. Not all pregnancy-related complications constitute medical negligence.
  • Errors involving medications, including inaccurately prescribed medications or incorrect dosages: Medication errors are a common reason for malpractice due to the number of people involved with issuing a prescription medication and the ease with which a mistake may be made in writing down a dosage.
  • Surgical errors, such as surgical short-cuts or performing the wrong procedure: Surgeons are often suffering from fatigue and yet they still perform surgeries. It is not uncommon for surgical tools to be left inside a patient or for miscommunication to result in negligence, such as operating on the wrong patient or causing accidental injury.
  • Anesthesia errors that lead to serious impairment or death: If a patient is given anesthesia that the patient’s medical history contraindicates due to an allergy or if the anesthesiologist administers too much medication, catastrophic results could occur.

Taking Legal Action

Medical malpractice is not a one-size-fits-all problem. Each patient deals with individual aspects that makes each case distinct. Due to the complex nature of malpractice issues, the patient will want to obtain the legal services of qualified attorneys who are well-versed in personal injury law.
