How do medical malpractice caps affect maternal mortality?

In California, the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) can have an impact on your ability to seek compensation for acts of medical malpractice. Kampf, Schiavone & Associates are here to guide you through medical malpractice caps and the way they may impact maternal mortality.

What are repetitive stress injuries?

Regardless of what sort of job Californian workers like you have, the potential for repetitive stress injuries will exist. Though some may believe that this type of injury is inconsequential, they can actually have a huge impact on your life and may even affect your efficiency at work.

Risks and hazards associated with forceps deliveries

When you visit a California hospital to give birth to a child, you probably have high hopes for a smooth delivery and a happy, healthy baby who will help complete your family. For some parents, however, the birthing process goes anything but smoothly, and in some situations, physicians have to rely on alternative birthing methods, such as forceps deliveries, to deliver your child. In some cases, forceps deliveries can lead to injuries and related issues for your or your baby, and some of them can prove quite serious. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we have seen the sometimes-traumatic effects of forceps deliveries firsthand, and we have helped many families who experienced hardship due to such deliveries seek recourse.

The potential risks of anesthesia

Undergoing anesthesia in California is much safer than it used to be, in many cases. Both medicine and medical practice have advanced to the point where patient deaths are remarkably uncommon for such an extreme level of sedation. In fact, many medical procedures would likely be impossible without modern anesthesiology.

How might a mild traumatic brain injury impact your life?

When a California car accident, work accident or other type of incident causes you to suffer a serious blow to your head, you may experience what is known as a traumatic brain injury. Typically classified in terms of severity as either minor, moderate or severe, traumatic brain injuries can impact virtually every area of your life, from your ability to speak and recall events to your ability to interact with others in the manner you always have.

Repetitive strain injuries common among office workers

While working in a California office environment may not be as inherently risky as, say, working from heights or in law enforcement, it still presents certain occupational hazards that can impact your life and health in a negative manner. Increasingly, workers who spend the majority of their days working at computers are experiencing what are known as repetitive strain injuries, which, if left untreated, can lead to serious long-term issues. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand how debilitating repetitive strain injuries can be, and we have helped many who suffer from them find solutions that meet their needs.
