Proving fault in a Pennsylvanian slip-and-fall accident

Suffering an injury from a fall can be very gruesome and traumatic for fall victims in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. For most, falls happen unexpectedly and could even be caused by the negligence of another. On almost a daily basis, individuals will enter the property of another's, whether it is a business, store or private home. Upon entering the property, there is the general expectation that the property is safe and maintained. However, when this duty is not met, a visitor or patron might be injured in a slip-and-fall accident.

What are the most common medical errors?

Going to the doctor may not be the most joyful experience for Pennsylvania residents, but it is a necessary step to take to ensure the health of individuals. If a patient is seriously ill or injured in an accident, medical care is often required for his or her survival. No matter the reason, a patient is being seen by a medical professional, trust is placed in the doctor, surgeon, nurse and medical staff. Failure to provide the medical duty of care could result in medical errors, thus harming or even killing the patient.

Placing cameras in PA operating rooms to prevent medical errors

Surgery can be a scary event to go through for any Pennsylvanian. Even if it is a simple or standard procedure, patients in Pennsylvania and all around the nation have many concerns going into it. Moreover, if complications occur during the procedure, the health and well being of the patient may be put at risk. While some complications are considered unpreventable, if a doctor or medical staff makes a surgical error during the process, this could be considered life threatening. Additionally, many of these occurrences are thought to be preventable, making it important for patients and loved ones to address this possibility.

Warning signs providing immunity for Pennsylvania equine activity

There are many reasons why Pennsylvanian visitors will enter private property, such as a farm or a stable. If a facility on the private property is used to conduct equine activity, it is likely that several visitors will be on the premises for lessons or activities related to the equestrian activities sponsored or advertised on the property. Pennsylvania residents who engage in equine activity should be aware of the rules regarding liability for negligence, and how immunity could be available to property owners in some situations.
