Finding help for those who have suffered workplace injuries

Every day, workers spend a good portion of their day at their jobs, trusting that they will be in a safe environment. However, some employers fail to properly maintain the premises, violate safety laws, or fail to properly train and supervise their employees. Even when these aren't the case, some jobs still carry the risk of injury. It is an unfortunate reality that many workers suffer severe injuries, including spinal cord injuries and head injuries, while on the job and may find themselves unable to work in the months following the accident.

Hip implant complications can cause serious health issues

Many Georgia residents have undergone hip replacement surgery with the hope that they will no longer feel any hip joint pain. The surgery generally requires the ball-and-socket joint of the hip to be replaced with a manufactured ball inside a cup. Doctors originally believed that using metal-on-metal hip devices, where both the ball and cup are made of metal, would be better for patients than ceramic or plastic devices, as they would last longer and make the joint more stable. However, many patients have found that metal hip-on-hip implants are more trouble than they're worth.

What are some mistakes doctors make when treating patients?

When a doctor is treating a patient, they have a duty to provide medical care that meets the standard of care accepted by the medical community. In an ideal world, every doctor would meet this standard and would go above and beyond to make sure their patients' needs are met. Unfortunately, in the real world, some physicians do not exercise the best judgment when it comes to treating their patients. As a result, doctors make mistakes, some of which lead to permanent injury and even death.

A car accident can lead to PTSD

When you think of the causes of PTSD, what do you think of? For many, they think about soldiers having flashbacks to something that happened in a combat zone. Or they think of police officers not being able to shake the feeling of unease after a partner passes away on the job. They think of people in dangerous professions who put their lives on the line.

U.S. pedestrians and cyclist traffic deaths on the rise

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of traffic fatalities dropped 2.4 percent from 2017 to 2018 and the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled is at its lowest since 2014. However, these numbers only apply to drivers and vehicle passengers, not cyclists and pedestrians. In fact, the number of pedestrians killed in 2018 increased 3.4 percent from 2017, and the number of cyclist fatalities over the same time period increased a whopping 6.3 percent.
