Prevent Misdiagnosis: 5 Ways To Help Your Doctor Get It Right

When people think of medical malpractice, they are likely to envision horrifying errors. A surgeon operates on the wrong body part. A nurse abuses nursing home residents.

While these things do happen, the most common cause of medical malpractice is less dramatic - misdiagnosis.

Hit By An Uninsured Driver? Now What?

When Should You Seek Medical Attention After an Accident?

There is so much going on after an accident occurs that it can become easy to become overwhelmed and begin overlooking important things including your injuries. At first you may feel fine but there are symptoms of a personal injury that are not always immediately visible. Symptoms like pain, numbness, and dizziness may not become apparent until hours or days after the accident has occurred. It is important to seek medical attention right away because if you wait it will become harder to prove that the injuries were a result of the accident and also you may have some non-visible injuries that if left untreated could put your health at risk.
