What to expect and do after a pharmacy mistake

When your doctor prescribes a medication, you have every reason to believe that the information will be relayed to your pharmacy without incident.

From there, you also hope that the right medication is provided to you. After all, you're relying on this to help improve a health condition.

Take action if you were injured by a dangerous product

When you purchase any type of product, from a motor vehicle to a toy for your child, you have every right to assume that it will be 100 percent safe to use in the intended manner.

Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. There are a variety of dangerous products on the market, all of which could cause a serious injury (or even death).

Costs of DUI on Memorial Day weekend run high

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and everyone is gearing up for the unofficial start of summer. You may not think too much about getting behind the wheel of car, truck, or a boat after having a few drinks this Memorial Day, but it could be a very costly mistake.

How can young adults prevent a cancer misdiagnosis?

As a young adult or parent of a young adult, there's something you need to remember: Cancer could strike when you least expect it.

Many people, especially young adults, often believe that older individuals are the only ones who are diagnosed with cancer. This isn't true, as many children and young adults find themselves dealing with this potentially fatal disease at some point.

Steps to take after you've been in an auto accident

You've just been in a wreck. Your emotions are wild and you want to make sure everyone involved is okay. Do you call the police? Do you take pictures? What if the other driver doesn't have insurance? This is the time to keep calm and do things the right way.

Second new wrongful death trial granted by appeals court

When the plaintiff and the defendant turn evidence over to one another, it is called the discovery phase. It doesn't matter if the plaintiff or defendant think that a piece of evidence is not important, all evidence must be turned over to the other side during discovery. When that does not occur, a new trial can be ordered by an appeals court.

That is what happened in a wrongful death case involving the Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOT). In 2010, a man was killed in the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution when corrections officers performed a "cell extraction." This happens when an inmate refuses an order by corrections officers to prepare to leave his cell. The 33-year-old man in this case was being held in solitary confinement. He had an argument with an officer and splashed some sort of liquid through the small slot in his cell door. That was when a prison commander decided to remove the man forcibly from his cell.

Riding toys are particularly dangerous

As a parent, you do whatever it takes to keep your children safe. This means checking the toys you buy with the idea of keeping them away from any that could cause harm.

Unfortunately, even with the best intentions, it's possible that your child could use a defective or dangerous toy. Subsequently, he or she could be part of an accident that leads to a serious injury.

Top reasons for medical malpractice lawsuits

Even if you're keeping a watchful eye on your medical team, there's always a chance a mistake could happen.

While some mistakes don't cause much, if any, harm, others are much more serious. For example, medical malpractice can result in serious injury or even death.

Are you familiar with the dangers of these products?

As you go through your day, it's safe to say that you come in contact with quite a few products. Think about all the things you use before you ever even leave your home in the morning.

Unfortunately, there are times when a product causes serious injury or even death. This is why you need to be careful about everything you buy and use.
