The facts about traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injury sounds like a severe problem, and it is certainly not something one should take lightly. However, many TBI events in California might not get reported. This is because, in a technical sense, these injuries range from mild to severe, and usually only severe cases get the attention all of them might deserve.

What are retained surgical items?

Thousands of people enter into operating rooms every year in the United States. Qualified, licensed surgeons and other medical professionals hold the trust of people as they undergo procedures as a way to save or improve their lives. If you have gone under the knife, you may know first-hand the feelings associated with putting your life in the hands of a medical professional. It may be hard to imagine leaving the operating room with a surgical instrument still inside your operating site. As horrible as this sounds, it happens more often than you may wish to think. A study conducted by Johns Hopkins University shows that at least 4,000 people suffer from this form of medical malpractice every year.

What does “fatal four” mean in construction?

Whether construction involves building a multi-story apartment building or improving roadways, there is no doubt that this industry is a dangerous one for California workers. There are countless ways to get seriously injured, or worse, in a construction accident. However, as you may know, some types of accidents occur more often than others.

Representing those who cannot represent themselves

Your own injuries are often things that are inherently easy to understand and process. If you broke your arm, for example, you might seek medical attention, process your doctor's diagnosis and, if applicable, seek compensation from the party responsible for the event. Many of these accidents happen every day in California. While they are serious matters, your own injuries would rarely be as confusing and enraging as those that affect your loved ones. 

Risks associated with unnecessary Cesarean sections

Nowadays, one out of every three babies born across California and the United States undergoes a Cesarean section delivery, making it the most common surgery currently performed in the country. Most women prefer to deliver their babies vaginally, however, and C-sections also bring with them certain risks that can affect both mother and baby. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand that C-sections that are not medically unnecessary expose you to potential harm, and we have helped many women and families who suffered hardship following this type of delivery pursue appropriate recourse.

Could a broken bone from a work injury end your career?

When people imagine workplace injuries that could end their careers, broken bones are likely not even on the list. After all, most people understand that broken bones typically only need to be set by a medical professional. The patient will then need adequate rest and physical therapy.
