When doctors go too far, we stand up for injured victims

Previously on this blog we discussed informed consent and how, in some instances, doctors in Lafayette either fail to obtain or go beyond the confines of said consent. When this happens, medical malpractice can occur, leaving victims with serious injuries that, in turn, can lead to a worsened medical condition or even a decreased chance of survival. Recovering from medical malpractice can be tough for victims. They can suffer an extensive amount of physical pain and suffering, of course, but their emotional well-being may also be put in jeopardy, and they may find themselves unable to afford the medical care they now desperately need.

What are the symptoms of traumatic brain injury?

The injuries that can be suffered in a car accident can vary greatly. Some wrecks in Louisiana are relatively minor, resulting in only bumps, bruises and scrapes. Other crashes leave victims with broken bones and serious cuts that may become infected if improperly treated. The wrecks leave individuals permanently disabled or dead. Those who are fortunate enough to survive their accident may find themselves struggling to cope with the physical, emotional and financial losses they face.

Medical malpractice: informed consent and unauthorized treatment

Medical treatment can take many forms, and there may be more than one treatment option available to a patient in Lafayette when trying to tackle a medical condition. Yet, not all treatments are the same. Some may pose a greater risk of injury or even death, while others may be safer but are also less likely to be effective. Regardless of what anyone says, the choice of which course of action to take is ultimately up to the patient. This is why medical professionals must obtain what is called "informed consent" before proceeding with a medical treatment.

Drugged driving places Louisiana motorists at risk

Driving is an inherently dangerous activity. Although most of us are able to commute to and from work on a daily basis without getting into a car accident, it only takes a split-second distraction or inattentiveness on the part of another driver to cause a devastating wreck. The risk of such a crash occurring increases when a motorist is under the influence of alcohol. Drunk driving is, of course, quite prevalent Louisiana, which is why law enforcement attempts to aggressively crack down on it. However, drugged driving is becoming more prevalent, increasing the risks of everyday driving.
