$1.57 million verdict in medical malpractice lawsuit

People in Massachusetts suffer from serious accidents all the time. In the aftermath of such an accident, they are likely scared and in pain, trusting that medical care professionals will adequately treat and diagnose their injuries. While most doctors and other personnel are well-trained professionals, mistakes happen that can cause significant harm to patients who are already suffering. One out-of-state man and his wife have recently won a medical malpractice lawsuit after claiming that negligence caused him serious injury.

A concussion injury can cause blood flow issues to the brain

A head injury is always concerning for patients in Massachusetts. While a concussion injury has previously been thought to be relatively minor in regard to other types of head injuries, a recent study appears to show that such an injury can impact a patient longer than previously thought. Researchers used MRIs to study how a concussion impacted blood flow to the injury site after symptoms were previously thought to be alleviated.

Workplace accident sends custodian to burn unit

For the most part, those who work in a high school likely feel relatively safe as they complete their job responsibilities.  There is little heavy machinery or toxic materials, for example. However, no workplace in Massachusetts is completely free from all dangers. For example, a custodian in a different state was recently injured in a workplace accident involving a boiler.

2 Massachusetts firefighters suffer workplace injury

There are many dangerous jobs. However, a firefighter is likely a position that encompasses the most obvious types of dangers.

For example, two firefighters were recently injured while responding to an incident involving a train in Massachusetts.

Workers' compensation possible after fatal incident

There are hidden dangers in all aspects of life -- especially in the workplace. While employees can take certain safety precautions, many dangers cannot be completely avoided.

As the holidays approach, many malls and other businesses are likely to see an increase in the number of customers who visit in a given day.

Unfortunately, three pedestrians were recently hit by a car in a Massachusetts parking lot.

Motorcycle versus car accidents: Massachusetts man hospitalized

Many people chose alternative forms of transportation for many reasons, including the potential for saving money. Motorcycles, for example, could result in savings due to the lower gas consumption. However, they are often more difficult to see because of their smaller size, putting motorcyclists at risk of car accidents when there are negligent drivers in their vicinity. Recently, one man suffered serious injuries after an incident that Massachusetts police believe was caused by the driver of a more traditional motor vehicle.

People in Massachusetts who are injured on the job may find themselves struggling to bounce back both physically and financially. Fortunately, workers' compensation can help in both areas. One utilities worker in another state recently suffered injuries on the job at a wastewater treatment plant.
