Why do truckers stay on the road too long?

You have probably heard on the news about truck driver fatigue, and the long days many New York truckers put in. The law says they are allowed to drive for 11 hours of their maximum 14-hour days, and that seems like enough to exhaust anyone. Many stay out on the road longer, though, and do what they can to make it appear they are within the law. Why?

Hand hygiene can save lives

When people think of medical malpractice, they may imagine a doctor in a New York hospital ordering the wrong treatment, or a nurse giving a patient the wrong dose of medication. However, according to the American Journal of Critical Care, hospital-acquired infections are also preventable threats to patients in hospitals, particularly in intensive care units. 

Concussion detection may soon be possible with a smartphone

A person may sustain a blow to the head without realizing it is serious when there is no loss of consciousness or other signs of a traumatic brain injury. However, after the brain collides with the skull, damage could begin with bruising or bleeding that do not cause symptoms at first. Swelling and pressure create new issues that may show up days or even weeks later, though. How does someone know if they have a concussion or more severe TBI?

Liability for an injury caused by medication

At Bendall & Mednick, we understand that when you want to make a major purchase such as a vehicle, you probably read reviews and looked at ratings to make sure it will keep you and your passengers safe. If you are like most people, when you take a medication, you probably trust your doctor to have done that research for you. However, even the best-informed doctors and pharmacists cannot tell you that the drug is defective if the manufacturer has not told them.
