Head-on Collisions and Their Devastating Consequences

By |September 17th, 2018|Auto Accidents|Comments Off on Head-on Collisions and Their Devastating Consequences

Head-on collisions occur when one motor vehicle impacts another motor vehicle, front to front.

Remember those medical review panels that a Franklin Circuit Judge deemed unconstitutional in October of 2017? That case has moved on to the Kentucky Supreme Court, which means the law still stands at this time.

Why Don’t Surgical Centers Have to Report the Deaths of Their Patients?

By |September 4th, 2018|Medical Negligence|Comments Off on Why Don’t Surgical Centers Have to Report the Deaths of Their Patients?

There are certain types of surgical procedures that don’t require long hospitals stays. Biopsies and colonoscopies are a good example, because they’re same-day procedures that don’t require an overnight stay; tonsillectomies, X-Rays, and cataract removals are also same day procedures. As a result, they are often performed at stand-alone surgery centers – not hospitals. These centers often cost less money, and are more conveniently located than hospitals, making them popular [...]

Youth Sports, Concussions, and Brain Trauma

By |August 27th, 2018|Brain Injury|Comments Off on Youth Sports, Concussions, and Brain Trauma

Sports programs have important benefits for kids—improving fitness and coordination, developing teamwork and people skills. However, many popular sports can put children at risk for traumatic brain injury, typically in the form of concussions. Because children are young with developing brains, they are more prone to concussion damage, and studies show that people who suffer concussions at a young age have an increased risk of suffering a second one later.
