What happens if a surgeon leaves equipment behind in surgery?

Surgeons use a number of tools when performing procedures on patients, including, but not limited to, sponges, scalpels, forceps, surgical masks, and needles. In fact, it is estimated that surgeons routinely use around 250 different types of instruments during a single procedure. With so many instruments out and about, it may not come as no surprise to Indiana residents that these objects are often left behind in patients. Thousands of such incidents take place yearly. In fact, between 4,500 and 6,000 such cases occur, according to some estimates.

Dram Shop Act and accountability in drunk driving crashes

Accident victims and their loved ones often feel frustrated after a car crash, and they want answers. How the accident was caused and whether their life will ever be the same are just some of the questions that go through the minds of many car accident victims. Getting answers can be difficult, but obtaining accountability doesn't have to be. In Indiana, it is possible to hold not only a drunk driver accountable for his or her negligent act, but also the establishment or host that provided him or her with alcohol.

Cerebral spinal fluid leaks signal danger for patients

The skull is a bone much like others in the body. There's a potential for it to break or crack on impact, which could have further consequences. Head trauma doesn't always involve a broken skull, but when it does, it's of the utmost importance to do all you can to get an accurate diagnosis.

Car accidents and automated vehicles: what's in the future?

As technology advances, companies have begun popularizing the concept of driverless cars, giving the assumption that a driver can sit behind a wheel, check out, perhaps catch a movie on their phone while the car steers itself safely down the road. Though this scenario may be possible at some point in the future, the partially autonomous systems currently available do not work this way. Despite this fact, many drivers still find themselves wrapped in a false sense of security.

Helping you qualify for SSD benefits

Living with a disability is nothing short of challenging. While individuals in Indiana may be able to alter their lives to better handle the difficulties that accompany his or her disability, it remains a tough situation with which to cope. In fact, a disability, whether born with or acquired later in life because of an injury or illness, could present many financial challenges due to necessary medical care and the inability to work.
