Heart attack and stroke misdiagnosis in women

Women in Pennsylvania who have a heart attack may experience symptoms that are not thought of as typical like nausea, back pain or vomiting. When this happens, women are more likely to be misdiagnosed and receive delayed care for the myocardial infarction. According to a study by the American Heart Association, nearly 62 percent of women experience symptoms other than chest pain when they are having a heart attack.

The older you get, the more challenging night driving becomes

People across the country, including many here in Pennsylvania, do what they can to fight the aging process through natural and other means. They may try to eat right, exercise regularly, undergo cosmetic procedures and more in an attempt to slow the progress of aging. Even so, some aspects of aging exist that can be incredibly difficult to combat.

The common causes of truck accidents

Television shows and commercials routinely show people driving in an unsafe manner. However, the truth is that doing so in real life could cause harm to drivers, passengers and pedestrians in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. According to the 2007 Large Truck Crash Causation Study (LTCCS), large trucks were to blame in 44% of the 963 accident cases researchers analyzed. One of the main causes of accidents involving large trucks was driving too fast for road conditions.

Motor vehicle accidents can be caused by drowsy driving

There are many dangers on Pennsylvania roadways, and drivers should be aware of them. The most common causes of motor vehicle accidents include driving under the influence, driving while distracted and driving recklessly. Another dangerous issue that is often unreported is drowsy driving. When there is a collision with injuries and fatalities, it is important to consider the possibility that a driver was drowsy.

Negligent drivers can be held accountable for crashes

When people in Pennsylvania have a car accident, the concept of negligence could help accident victims to understand whether they can pursue a legal case against the other driver. In order for a driver to be considered negligent, they need to violate a duty for reasonable care that they owe to others on the road. In general, drivers are always expected to pay attention to the safety of others while driving their cars as a condition for using the roads. The injured party must be able to show that the driver did not exercise the reasonable care that was required in the circumstances.

Preventable medical errors still prevalent

A statement released by the federal Department of Health and Human Services indicates that preventable medical errors cause 200,000 or more deaths every year in Pennsylvania and across the country. The definition of a medical error has improved in recent years and has become more expansive. Generally speaking, medical errors can be divided into two categories.
