Is your medical treatment putting you at risk?

Modern medicine is almost miraculous in its ability to treat serious injuries and illnesses. Patients today recover from extreme injuries and diseases with the help of medical treatment, and the skills of health care professionals provide hope for individuals injured in accidents across the world. While medical treatment is certainly a modern marvel, there are times when your medical treatment could put you at risk for other injuries.

How frequently do child injuries occur?

Just how serious is the child injury epidemic in our nation? It may surprise you to learn that New York child injuries are far more prevalent than you thought. Every day in our country, about two dozen children die from an unintended, and probably preventable, traumatic injury. Millions of children are affected by child injury every year, with many suffering ongoing chronic pain and disability because of their wounds. Although government and public health agencies are working together to improve injuries due to school accidents and other causes, we still have a long way to go until all New York kids are safe from physical trauma.

Are sleepy workers causing NYC transit accidents?

Let's face it: Americans, especially New Yorkers, love to play hard and work hard. But is all of this running about causing us to endanger ourselves and our loved ones on the road? New information suggests that NYC transit accidents may be largely attributable to chronic fatigue; that is, our bus drivers and pilots may simply not be getting enough sleep. In fact, studies show that air traffic controllers' schedules actually lead to increased fatigue, which introduces error and puts New Yorkers at risk.

Is your child safe with a tech-savvy babysitter?

With today's ubiquitous technologies, parents would be hard-pressed to find caregivers for their children who are completely unplugged from social media and other online activities. However, those tasked with the care of other people's children have the responsibility to remain vigilant and not become distracted by smartphones or digital media.

Hold drivers more accountable for their role in car accidents

How many pedestrians and cyclists do you think die in crashes in an average month in New York City? If you guessed a dozen, you would be right; a recent report shows that New York City car accidents led to the deaths of at least 11 pedestrians and one cyclist in June 2015. Statistics for the entire calendar year indicate that 62 pedestrians and cyclists have been killed in car accidents since the beginning of 2015, and more than 6,200 have been injured.

The simple mistake doctors make most often

Though people often trust them to be, doctors are not perfect. They do make mistakes, and some of these can lead to death or serious injuries. One of the most common mistakes, according to a study that was carried out by researchers working at Johns Hopkins University, is coming up with the wrong diagnosis.

Which factors converge to cause New York City car accidents?

Four young New York women are dead after a violent collision between the limousine in which they were riding and a pickup truck. This Long Island incident illustrates just how many factors can contribute to New York City car accidents; the limousine driver, truck driver and road configuration all appear to be to blame for this deadly crash. Authorities report that many negligent drivers have been issued summonses at the crash intersection in recent months because of the way in which they were executing their U-turns in limousines. The limo driver in this case appears to fall into that category, and the pickup truck driver is accused of being intoxicated behind the wheel. Sadly, all of these factors converged to lead to the fatal accident.
