Tort Reform Reduces Healthcare Innovation

Studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between tort reform and a reduction in the advancement of medical technology. The study in "Tort Reform and Innovation" found that patents for new technology and procedures had decreased by nearly 14%, after any given state passes medical malpractice reforms that limit damages wrongfully injured patients can pursue. In other words, the more protections from financial liability medical providers are given, the less financial incentive there is to make medical procedures safer.

Concussions, Football and O.J. Simpson - What We All Need to Know about Head Injuries

I just saw the movie, Concussion. It is the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, and his discovery of the terrible disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease in retired NFL players. CTE is caused by repetitive head injuries by a buildup of proteins, called tau, in the brain. This disease can occur in all high impact sports, not just football. However, the release of the movie Concussion has brought the issue, as well as Dr. Omalu, to center stage. Symptoms of CTE include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, and, eventually, progressive dementia.

Train Accidents- Liability Limits

On May 12, 2015, a major train crash left eight people dead and over two hundred injured. An article from the New York Times discusses these devastating accidents and tells about a couple who experienced the accident first hand. The woman, Kathryn Varnum, only 33 years-old is confined to a wheel chair after multiple fractures. She has already incurred over $200,000 in medical bills and this number will only rise with time and continuing care.

Premises Liability Injuries

Premises liability injuries are responsible for over 1 million emergency room visits per year. These cases often occur when people go into stores such as Wal-Mart and either slip on an unattended wet spot on the floor or trip over a pallet or product display left in the wrong place. Naturally, many people believe that if they fall and are injured on someone else's property that the property owner is automatically at fault. However, that is not the case.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

What is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and how does it affect you or a loved one. In the case of a head injury of significance, most people would go to the emergency room to be evaluated by a health care professional. This is a way to know how severe the TBI is. They are classified into three categories; mild, moderate, and severe. According to Pate Rehabilitation over 75% of traumatic brain injuries are classified as mild. But what does this mean to you or what does this mean to your loved one? There are different tests done in the health care facility to evaluate how severe a TBI is. They base this off of factors such as how long they lost consciousness for, post-traumatic amnesia (PTA), and results from brain imaging.
