Medical malpractice: Common medical mistakes

Patients in Oklahoma and elsewhere typically trust medical professionals like doctors and nurses to provide care that meets accepted standards. Although wrong limb operations and instruments left inside patients during surgery receive a lot of media attention, they do not happen as often as other less sensational medical errors. The majority of medical malpractice claims result from a few common mistakes made by medical professionals.

Do not underestimate the severity of mild traumatic brain injury

Many people in Oklahoma and across the country underestimate the consequences of concussions. They might not realize that a concussion is a brain injury that follows a blow to the head in a fall, car accident or on the sports field. Even if the person seems fine, a concussion can cause confusion, problems with vision, speech, memory and balance, and it could remain hidden for days or even weeks.

Truck accidents are more likely to be fatal

Tractor-trailers are known as the backbone of the United States economy. These massive vehicles are used to ship goods and merchandise across the country. The interstates and highways that cross the state of Oklahoma are heavily utilized by these big rigs. For those in passenger vehicles, traveling close to tractor-trailers can be very intimidating. Due to their massive size, truck accidents are more likely to be serious or fatal.

Car accidents often cause hidden whiplash injuries

Motorists in Oklahoma and across the nation face similar hazards whenever they take to the roads. Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye, and no one knows whether they will encounter drunk, distracted or speeding drivers. Getting a medical evaluation soon after a crash is essential, for not only those who intend to pursue claims to recover damages, but also to make sure they have no hidden injuries.

Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in Oklahoma

Throughout the state of Oklahoma, it is very obvious that traffic has increased in recent years. Because so many vehicles are sharing the same roadways, just going for a short drive can potentially turn into a serious crash. Tragically, car accidents continue to be a leading cause of death and injury in the United States today. To help prevent crashes, drivers must remain focused and attentive at all times behind the wheel.
