How can I find out about product recalls?

Product malfunctions, issues and defects are things that happen all the time in California and across the country. When a problem is reported concerning a product, it is taken seriously at all levels. Some product issues pose serious liability for manufacturers while others are a simple inconvenience for you, the consumer. Regardless, when a product could pose harm, there are many ways authorities try to get the word out about it. The most common is to issue a recall. There are plenty of ways you can learn about a defective product recall.

Can car accidents cause vision trauma?

Not every car accident in Redwood City results in death. Serious motor vehicle collisions often lead to severe and life-threatening injuries, such as vision loss. According to FindLaw, vision disturbances are often associated with traumatic brain injuries. Vision disturbances can also occur from direct trauma to the eye area. Not all affected accident victims notice problems with their vision right away; some of them experience delayed symptoms.

What you should know before filing a medical malpractice claim

A trip to the hospital is never anyone’s idea of a good time. We all know accidents can occur, even when the most highly trained medical professionals are caring for you. Maybe your doctor misdiagnosed your condition, wrote down the wrong prescription or made an error during surgery. Now you are left feeling worse than before you entered the hospital.

Alcohol-Impaired doctor loses license

When one thinks of medical negligence in Redwood City, alcohol intoxication is not a factor that immediately comes to mind. One of the most trusted groups of individuals in the country is doctors. You should be able to trust your health care providers without question. However, they are human, and many of them make mistakes that endanger the very lives they took a Hippocratic oath to protect. According to Yahoo Sports, physicians "should not practice and see patients if their ability to do so safely is impaired by the use of a controlled substance, alcohol, chemical agent or a health condition.” 

Motorcyclists risk traumatic brain injuries when they ride

There is no denying that motorcyclists are at a greater risk of harm when they are on the roads than other motorists. Many people overlook the safety of motorcycle passengers. Reuters Health states that “riders are less likely to end up with traumatic brain injuries than their passengers. The risk is much higher when they do not wear helmets and consume alcohol before riding. Though there are other factors that affect the type and extent of injuries accident victims sustain, motorcycles have fewer vehicle structures to shield operators and riders from accident debris, the road and other vehicles.
