What Are the Dangers of an Inaccurate Diagnosis?

When we go to the doctor, we expect our providers to carefully listen to our concerns and to take our symptoms into full consideration before making a diagnosis. Unfortunately, many doctors rush through appointments without taking the time to fully understand what’s going on. Failing to spend enough time and effort on a patient can be devastating, as the dangers of an inaccurate diagnosis are often severe.

If you suspect that you received an inaccurate diagnosis, seek a second opinion from a different doctor as soon as possible. Explain what happened with your previous doctor and why you believe there may have been a diagnostic error. Afterward, your next step may be to contact a lawyer about filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Mississippi Underinsured and Uninsured Motorist Coverage Laws

Mississippi has more uninsured drivers than any other state in the U.S. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe on our roads, be sure you are familiar with Mississippi underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage laws.

Uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) auto insurance exists to help you in the event you get in an accident with a driver who doesn’t have adequate vehicle insurance. If the other driver’s insurance policy isn’t sufficient to cover your losses, your UM/UIM coverage can kick in to make up the difference.

What You Need To Know About Speeding Cameras in Mississippi

You’ve likely heard the saying “speed kills” before. It, therefore, shouldn’t come as a surprise that National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data cites speed as the primary contributing factor to at least 26% of all car accidents.

Despite the dangers speed clearly poses, there hasn’t been any legislation authorizing the installation or use of speed cameras in Mississippi. Red light cameras are prohibited in the state, too.

While many jurisdictions use these cameras to enforce established traffic laws, many drivers in Biloxi, Gulfport, and other parts of Mississippi continue to violate the law, endangering the lives of fellow motorists. This happens because there’s no concern about a camera catching them recklessly driving if a police officer isn’t nearby.

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.
