Semitruck crashes have many causes

The roads that stripe this country were designed to improve safety, but each driver has a direct impact on this. Large semitrucks pose a significant risk to smaller vehicles, so these drivers need to be especially careful as they drive down the highways and roads.

The dangers of distracted driving

Today, most drivers in Massachusetts are aware of the dangers associated with using a cell phone while driving. Despite this knowledge, some drivers still decide to reach for their phone while driving. Even if it is for a second, the reality is that using a cell phone takes the driver' eyes off of the road, hands from the wheel and their mind off of the task of driving. And in that short moment, an accident could ensue because that motorist was distracted.

What are common birth injuries suffered?

The birth of a baby is a very joyous event for parents in Massachusetts and elsewhere. While it is a positive and happy moment in the lives of parents, it is also a time where the unexpected could occur. Complications are not uncommon; however, when a medical professional acts quickly and properly, some harms and medical issues can be avoided. In contrast, when a medical professional makes an error or does not uphold their duty of care, this could result in significant harms to the mother, newborn or both.

Understanding Medicare's Hospice Benefit

Medicare's hospice benefit covers any care that is reasonable and necessary for easing the course of a terminal illness. It is one of Medicare's most comprehensive benefits and can be extremely helpful to both a terminally ill individual and his or her family, but it is little understood and underutilized. Understanding what is offered ahead of time may help Medicare beneficiaries and their families make the difficult decision to choose hospice if the time comes.
