What is placental abruption?

If you are an expectant mom in California, your growing baby likely is almost always on your mind. You worry about his or her health, safety and welfare, and you do everything you possibly can to make sure that (s)he – and you – have everything you need to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery. During your third trimester, one of the things you should watch for is any sign of placental abruption.

Complications associated with cesarean sections

Nowadays, more than one out of every four women who give birth across California and the United States do so through a cesarean section. In some cases, patients have C-sections because they experience emergency circumstances during the birthing process. In others, patients deliver through this method because they have done so before, and physicians typically encourage them to do so with any subsequent children they have. C-section deliveries are more dangerous than vaginal deliveries, however, and they have the potential to endanger both mother and child. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we recognize the risks that come with having babies through C-sections, and we have helped many families who experienced hardship during or after delivery seek recourse.

Does domestic violence contribute to traumatic brain injury?

It is easy to think of brain injuries affecting football players and victims of car accidents, but have you ever considered connections between domestic violence and head trauma? It is not hard to imagine, is it? Spouses get into an argument that escalates into punches, and next thing you know, someone is on the way to a California emergency room.

Bouncing back from an injury at work

California worksites are supposed to be safe. OSHA works overtime to make sure of this, and state regulations governing safety are stronger here than they are in many other places in the USA. Still, we often see people come into our offices at Kampf, Schiavone & Associates with debilitating injuries sustained during work on a construction site.

Is chronic pain a workplace injury?

If you are like many people in the California workforce, then you have probably given your employer some of the best years of your life. For this, it is reasonable for you to expect compensation and consideration if you happen to become injured. However, it is an unfortunate fact that many employers in the state do not see it as their responsibility to assume treatment costs for chronic conditions that developed over the course of a long-term employee's tenure with a company.

The worst possible consequences of misdiagnosis

California has one of the highest standards for medical care in the United States. However, that does not mean that doctors in the state are infallible. In fact, studies exist suggesting that medical professionals could be responsible for far more harm than anyone would like to believe.

Nursing home workers at high risk for sustaining work injuries

Medical workers are dedicated to providing care for those who need it. Those who care for the oldest and most vulnerable patients often do so because they have a passion for helping others. It's kind of ironic, then, that medical workers are at higher risk than the general public for needing care because of their work. You may not think of the medical field as a high risk industry, but in reality the workers in this field face daily risks to their health and well-being.

What do you do if a loved one dies in nursing care?

Losing someone you care about is never easy. However losing someone when you have entrusted that individual's care to a responsible professional organization has the potential to be even more distressing. Luckily, California law would offer you some recourse should the unthinkable happen to a relative of yours in a nursing home.
