Operating a motor vehicle requires the driver to use his/her hands, arms, eyes, ears, and mental faculties; any activity that distracts from the driver’s capability to do these things may result in “distracted driving.” Every year, distracted driving causes thousands of car accidents and injuries – most of these are cellphone related. For instance, texting requires your hands, eyes and mental attention. In essence, texting behind the wheel of a car impairs many of the faculties necessary to drive safely. In 2009, a study by Car and Driver Magazine demonstrated that texting behind the wheel of a car is, in many ways, more dangerous than driving drunk. Distracted driving may also include:
- Using a GPS device
- Talking on the phone
- Eating while driving
- Looking at a map
- Applying makeup behind the wheel
Of course, not all personal injury cases involved car accidents. If a doctor makes a careless mistake during surgery or is negligent in any way while caring for a patient, a medical malpractice suit may be appropriate. Medical malpractice is generally defined as professional negligence committed by a health care provider. Medical malpractice may be committed by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, anesthesiologists, E.R. attendants, and other medical professionals. When patients come to the hospital or doctor’ s office for help they should be able to trust the doctor’s assisting them, but there are many ways that doctors may be negligent.
A surgeon may be guilty of negligence if he/she makes a thoughtless, avoidable error during an operation. Similarly, doctors may become negligent in the delivery room. If a baby is injured because the delivery doctor failed to perform a necessary caesarean section on time, the child’s parents may be entitled to financial compensation for the mistake. Every year, numerous prescriptions are filled incorrectly; patients are given the wrong medication or the wrong amount of the right medication. Either of these situations could result in injury, illness, or death. Talking to an attorney may be wise if you believe that you or a loved one has been injured by a careless or negligent medical professional.
