Anyone in Missouri who recently suffered from an illness or injury most likely incurred a substantial amount of medical expenses -- even with health insurance. Drivers and passengers who survive head-on collisions could be looking at a costly recovery since the injuries suffered in these motor vehicle crashes can be significant. The costs will only escalate if victims are left with permanent disabilities for which they will need lifelong care.
Passing on a two-lane road is a risky maneuver. If drivers are not paying adequate attention to the flow of traffic in the oncoming lane, near head-on or head-on collisions are a distinct possibility. Drivers who fail to successfully pass on two-lane roads cause numerous crashes in Missouri each year.
Missouri residents who experience medical problems that are unfamiliar to them may experience high levels of anxiety. Most people rely on medical professionals to accurately diagnose and treat their conditions. Failure to diagnose dreaded diseases such as cancer may lead to devastating results. Modern medical technology allows for accurate diagnoses, yet many cases of failure to diagnose continue to occur.
Roads in Missouri can be a very dangerous place to be, though many people have to travel them every single day. Hit-and-run drivers contribute to making the roads across the country unsafe, and they are usually prosecuted once they are located. Fortunately, drivers responsible for hit-and-run accidents are often found and criminally charged by law enforcement personnel.
Despite what efforts Missouri residents may take to ensure that they are safe while driving on the road, accidents can still happen. This is especially true if other people are drinking and driving. This appears to be the case with one of Missouri's most recent alleged drunk driving accidents.
It takes just a blink of an eye for a person's life to change. When parents put their children on the school bus in the morning, or teachers put the children on the bus in the afternoon, they don't expect for an accident to occur. Unfortunately, it occasionally happens. Two young children were injured following one of Missouri's recent T-bone collisions.
When a person becomes ill and requires medical attention, he or she likely turns to an individual who has had years of schooling to help them timely and correctly diagnose a condition. Whether it is a nurse, doctor or other health care provider, a patient in Missouri typically puts his or her full trust into the ability of that provider. Unfortunately, though, human error can occur. A man from another state recently took his claims of doctor errors to court and won.
A 75-year-old man recently got on Interstate 44 in Missouri. Unfortunately, he entered the highway and began driving the wrong way for unknown reasons. He supposedly continued driving the wrong way for approximately five miles. At that time, his vehicle struck several others causing multiple injuries in one of Missouri's most recent head-on collisions.
When Missouri residents need dental care, they would naturally want to be able to trust the dentist to provide care of an acceptable standard. When a dentist fails to resolve one's dental problems, it could result in numerous consultations and ongoing pain. A dentist in another state is facing a medical malpractice lawsuit that includes a claim for a failure to diagnose.
Missouri residents may be interested in hearing about how a recent alleged misdiagnosis of a man's condition led to health concerns and a lawsuit. The man’s wife scheduled an appointment for the man at a clinic, where his primary care physician and nurse practitioner worked, after he had suffered from hiccupping, nausea and pain in the abdominal area for 24 hours. An appointment was schedule for two days later, but the doctor asked the patient to pick up and take an acid reflux medicine. Although he did as asked by the medical professional, the patient asserts he had never been diagnosed with acid reflux in the past. This was the beginning of what the man and wife have alleged as a misdiagnosis.
