Obtaining compensation for birth injury

After months of pregnancy, a birth injury is one of the most disorienting things that could possibly happen to you. Unfortunately, it is not unthinkable for the lack of knowledge or focus on the part of a medical professional in California to lead to serious injuries for your child. Even if you were unable to choose your birth doctor, you deserve someone who is appropriately trained. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we believe that everyone should have access to competent medical care.

When a common injury constitutes malpractice

Even with all of the modern medical facilities available in the state of California, childbirth still carries a risk of injury. Almost every physician, birth caregiver and expectant mother knows of these risks, especially if the professional has appropriately informed their patient of the risks of suggested procedure.

Prevalence of brain injured inmates giving a new perspective

When people in California suffer a traumatic brain injury, their entire way of seeing things, processing information and making decisions is altered. Often, they are required to relearn several habits and behaviors that were previously basic or innate. While family members and friends may do their best to provide consistent support and encouragement, brain-injured individuals often have to receive intervention of some sort to assist them in learning how to cope and thrive despite the changes they have experienced. 

Things you should not discover after your surgery

Surgery can be a scary experience and you will likely feel happy or euphoric once it is complete and you are awake. But what if somebody finds after the fact that their California surgeon operated on their right leg when it should have been the left leg? This is a medical mistake that should not have happened at all. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality website, there are a number of unwelcome post-surgery discoveries that can be the result of medical malpractice.

Why water and electrical cords do not mix in the workplace

When it comes to electrical shocks, one easy equation to remember is that water plus electricity equals a nasty electric shock. California workplaces should keep their employees safe from water related electric shocks. Without proper safety standards and worker awareness, an unwary employee could become the victim of an unfortunate workplace electrical accident.

Nurses: Minimize the risk of illness and injury while working

You might think of nursing as a fairly safe profession. After all, these individuals work in an environment where safety and illness and injury prevention are focal points. The fact of the matter is that nurses face some very serious hazards during each shift they work. These hazards can lead to missed wages if they have to take off work to address their illnesses and injuries. They can also lead to workers' compensation claims, in some cases.

Injuries common among restaurant and food service workers

With an endless stream of restaurants, resorts and food service operations spanning the state, many Californians make a living working in this type of environment. If you are among them, you face specific work-related job hazards that can hinder not only your ability to work, but your overall quality of life. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we recognize the hazards that place restaurant and food service workers at risk, and we have helped many clients who suffered injury in food service environments seek recourse and get back on their feet.
