The high cost of a brain injury

If you reside in California and you or someone you love suffered a brain injury on the job, while receiving medical care or through other circumstances, you may have justifiable concerns about how the injury will impact your life. In addition to the serious physical toll brain injuries can take on you or your loved one, they are also a considerable financial burden, and they can have a tremendous and negative effect on your finances moving forward. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we recognize just how much a brain injury can cost nowadays, and we have helped many clients and their loved ones attempt to hold those responsible for their brain injuries accountable.

3 common anesthesia errors

If you or one of your California loved ones has ever gone under the knife and required anesthesia, you probably know that there are inevitable risks involved with receiving anesthetic treatment. When anesthesiologists make errors, the repercussions can prove severe and even fatal, so it is important that anyone who undergoes treatment involving anesthesia fully understand the risks involved before doing so. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we know that you place a certain degree of trust in your physicians, and we have helped many clients who suffered injury or hardship because of a medical provider’s negligence or mistake pursue appropriate recourse.

What risks are associated with a vacuum extraction?

If you are like many California mothers or mothers-to-be, you may envision the birth of your child and picture a smooth, simple birthing process followed by a quick hospital stay and your first ride home as a complete family. Regrettably, however, many births are not this seamless, and in some cases, mothers giving birth may require additional medical intervention, such as a vacuum extraction. Vacuum extractions may prove necessary if you are having trouble delivering your child through a vaginal birth, but there are inevitable risks associated with this type of birthing procedure.

What occupational hazards do nurses face?

If you count yourself among the thousands of people across California who currently earn an income as a nurse, you may understand all too well that, while rewarding, nursing can be an inherently dangerous, difficult occupation. Nurses typically report higher illness and injury rates than professionals across many other industries, and the long hours and often highly emotional nature of the job can only further compound existing difficulties.

Work-related back injuries might be preventable

Many jobs are hard on the back. These include any career that involves standing or sitting for prolonged periods, those that deal with heavy lifting and ones that require bending over. It is hard for many workers to accept the toll that the job is taking on them, but doing so increases their safety.

Workplace accidents - what can I do about them?

California employees do not get up in the morning expecting to find themselves caught up in a workplace accident later in the day. In fact, most of you likely feel fairly safe at work. Even construction workers, who have one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet, can often get so used to the risk it does not feel quite so risky anymore.
