New study shows staying in game doubles recovery time for concussions

Don't be a quitter, think about your teammates, play through the pain--call it sports culture: Parents, coaches and trainers are all complicit at one time or another. And it doesn't seem to be a uniquely American phenomenon. Athletes participating at the 2016 Rio Olympics recounted many stories of training--and competing--while injured. In essence, they expressed the "no-pain-no-gain" mindset that has made them the elite athletes that they are.

Traumatic brain injuries and young children

Although traumatic brain injuries are a serious concern for people of all ages, it is particularly important for parents and those who take care of kids to understand the risks that children face. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children who were four years old and younger had the highest rate of emergency department visits for a non-fatal traumatic brain injury between 2006 and 2010. In San Bernardino, and communities across California, children continue to suffer TBIs at an shocking rate for many different reasons.

The consequences of a delayed diagnosis

With errors in the emergency room, pharmacist mistakes and errors made by an anesthesiologist, there are many examples of medical malpractice. However, you should be aware of the problems you may encounter if you suffer from a delayed diagnosis. Regrettably, delayed diagnosis cases occur far too frequently in San Bernardino, California, and cities throughout the nation. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our law firm recognizes the myriad of challenges that victims of a delayed diagnosis may experience.

Falling beam claims life of California worker

The details surrounding work accidents vary from one incident to another. Sometimes, a mishap may only cause minor injuries or even allow a worker to walk away unharmed. Sadly, workplace accidents in San Bernardino and all over California can also prove deadly, leaving the families of those who died with lasting emotional pain.

Reviewing statistics on medication errors

From wrong-site surgeries to failing to diagnose a serious health problem, medical professionals make many different mistakes. However, errors involving prescription medication are particularly widespread. If you live in San Bernardino, or somewhere else in the state of California, there is a good chance that you take some type of prescription medication. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, almost one out of every three adults in America take at least five medications. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we know the heavy toll that prescription medication errors continue to take on families.

When childbirth becomes deadly

Sadly, childbirth complications can become deadly for mothers as well as babies. In San Bernardino, California, and throughout the United States, there are many factors that play a role in childbirth deaths. It is vital for medical professionals and mothers to do everything in their power to prevent childbirth complications. Unfortunately, medical professional negligence will continue to affect families across the nation.

Fatal traumatic brain injuries

In last week's post on this blog, some of the long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury were covered. Unfortunately, TBI-related accidents can also prove fatal and may claim your life or the life of one of your family members. At the San Bernardino, California law firm of Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we sympathize with families who have profound emotional pain after their loved one passes away. Moreover, financial hardships may arise (funeral expenses, lost income, etc.).

The long-term effects of a TBI

However, it is important to understand the potential long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we know that brain injuries have made daily life incredibly difficult for too many people in San Bernardino, and all over the state of California.
