What’s MRI Malpractice?

The diagnostic tools available in modern medicine save lives every day. But what happens if a negligent health care provider uses these tools incorrectly? A patient injured by a usually-harmless diagnostic test—or the misinterpreted results of that test—may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against the medical professional who acted wrongly.

Although an MRI might be considered scary or unpleasant by many, few people think this medical imaging procedure can cause patients serious harm. In the majority of cases, it shouldn’t. MRI technology is relatively safe and valuable for diagnosing a variety of conditions. Only when used inappropriately can it cause a patient to suffer adverse health effects.

Can a Car Accident Claim Be Reopened?

You got hurt in a car accident, thought you were okay, and quickly agreed to sign a release, thus closing your claim. Now, you’re experiencing a sudden onset of unexpected back or neck pain or another debilitating diagnosis. Can you now reopen your car accident claim?

Who Is at Fault in a Driveway Accident?

There are two different types of accidents most of us think about when we hear the terminology “driveway accident.”

For some, a backover incident in which a motorist runs over another individual may come to mind. For others, an incident in which a motorist who was driving in reverse and backs into an active lane of traffic and collides with another driver’s vehicle, bicyclist, or pedestrian may come to mind. A motorist may also pull out headfirst into an active traffic lane and do the same.

What Makes Tailgating So Dangerous?

If you’ve ever been in a rush to get to work, school, or an important meeting, you know how tempting it can be to drive close to the car in front of you. Tailgating rarely provides the desired outcome, though.

Not sure what tailgating is? Whether you’re a new driver or already have decades of experience behind the wheel, you’ve probably experienced it even if you don’t know the name. Tailgating is when a driver drives much too close to the car in front of them. You might be most likely to encounter a tailgating driver during rush hour, which tends to peak between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. in Gulfport, although it can happen at any time of day.

What Is an Attractive Nuisance?

Children are, by nature, curious about the world around them. If something looks inviting, interesting, or fun in any capacity, children are likely to gravitate towards it. While engaging in these activities is an excellent way to learn, it can also be dangerous.

Not every place or attraction that looks interesting is actually safe for a child. When something dangerous is also exceptionally appealing to a child, it is often considered an attractive nuisance.

What Is a Whiplash Injury and What Causes It?

What Is a Whiplash Injury and What Causes It?

Research published by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego suggests that as many as 3 million individuals suffer whiplash each year in the U.S.

While some consider whiplash a relatively minor, “shake it off” type of injury, it’s not. While many individuals who receive such a diagnosis suffer temporary minor discomfort or functional impairments, a whiplash’s impact can be far more serious and lingering for some.

What Is a Rolling Stop and Why Is It Dangerous?

What Is a Rolling Stop and Why Is It Dangerous?

Many of us have done it at some point in our lives as drivers. You pull up to a quiet intersection, ease on the brakes, take a look in both directions to find no other vehicles in sight, and slowly roll past the stop sign without coming to a full and complete stop. The action known as a “rolling stop” is just that—a roll through a stop sign without your vehicle’s tires ever coming to a complete standstill.

But why is a rolling stop bad? If you’ve had any driver training, you’ve probably heard the words “full” and “complete” associated with the kind of stops required by the red, octagonal signs so common to our city’s intersections. A rolling stop may seem harmless. And in many cases, no real harm will be brought about by a driver’s decision to perform a rolling stop through an empty intersection. But a rolling stop is a risk, and the consequences can be deadly. There are good reasons why a full—not a rolling—stop at a stop sign is required by law.
