Virginians see commercial trucks on their local highways daily, transporting essential goods throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. Though these trucks provide a useful service, they also pose the risk of dangerous 18-wheeler accidents.
When a Virginia patient is injured in a medical procedure, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly who is responsible for the error. Often, a large number of people have come into contact with a patient, from medical technicians to anesthesiologists to surgeons. Furthermore, a patient may have been unconscious due to anesthesia when an injury occurred.
Learning that a loved one has a brain injury can be overwhelming. A Virginian may wonder how his or her loved one will act, whether he will remember his family and be able to do everyday tasks. A Virginian may wonder if a loved one will be severely incapacitated. As this blog reported in a previous post, it is essential to identify and treat a brain injury as quickly as possible, and yet, even with prompt care, a person may not ever fully recover from a brain injury.
Virginians who reside in a nursing home rely on the care they receive from nursing home staff to survive and to thrive. The residents are in nursing homes because they cannot properly care for themselves. Unfortunately, however, the staff in nursing homes does not always properly care for patients, and their negligence may lead to nursing home injuries for some Virginians.
