Knowing how to drive in wet weather can prevent accidents

During the spring season in Akron, you can expect plenty of wet weather to hit the local area. While this may not sound like a big deal, it should change the way you drive. If it doesn't, you may be making mistakes that increase the chance of being involved in an accident.

While you cannot control how others drive in the rain, you can control every move that you make. For this reason, here are a few tips to follow when the rain begins to fall:

Medication errors are common, can have a serious impact

Many patients overlook the fact that medication errors can and do happen from time to time. In fact, you may be surprised to learn just how common this is. Not every error leads to a serious health concern, but this could be the end result.

There are many serious consequences of an improper dosage or prescribing the wrong prescription. For example, a person could take a drug that does not sit well with one's body. Or maybe the prescription is meant for a woman, but a man ends up taking it.

How is brain swelling treated?

A head injury can be the result of many circumstances, such as a slip and fall incident or a car accident.

There are many types of brain injuries, with swelling a common side effect. If you have hit your head, such as in a car accident, it is important to be examined by a qualified medical professional. While you may feel okay immediately following the accident, brain swelling can occur over time.

Woman dies after being struck by vehicle

A 27-year-old woman who was struck by a vehicle on Ridge Road in Fowler Township has died. The man accused of hitting the woman is facing charges for allegedly fleeing the scene. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the woman passed away at St. Elizabeth Hospital as a result of injuries suffered in the accident.

A spokesperson for the highway patrol added the following:

Takata airbag recall could expand

Over the past 12 months, there have been many developments in the Takata airbag recall story. While most people were hoping this would calm down over time, the exact opposite is happening.

According to recent reports, auto safety regulators in the United States are examining whether another 90 million vehicles should be recalled as the result of a defective airbag inflator.

Truckers should follow these tips when driving in the snow

Truckers are always in a hurry. They need to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to meet deadlines and provide a high level of service, this often comes at the expense of others.

When truck drivers run into inclement weather, they have one of two options: Continue to drive as if nothing has changed, or alter their approach based on what is happening around them.

Brain, spine and back injuries

When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, any type of injury is one that you should receive treatment for. However, some are more serious than others. This includes any injury to your brain, spine or back.

Regardless of the injury type, if you hesitate to receive treatment, it could have a negative impact on your health and long-term prognosis.

Steps to take immediately following a car accident

There is nothing fun about a car accident. This is a stressful event that can change your life forever, especially if you don't take the right steps at the right time.

If you are involved in an accident, regardless of the details or extent of damage, it is important to know your obligations and rights in Ohio.

Who can be responsible for medical malpractice?

Nobody wants to find themselves in position to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, as this means something has gone wrong with the care they have received. However, if you are put in this situation, it is time to learn more about your rights. This starts with knowing who to hold responsible.

There are many parties who can be held responsible for medical malpractice, including but not limited to:

How to handle a public transportation accident

While some people spend their time driving a motor vehicle, others rely on public transportation. Just the same as any type of vehicle, there is a chance you could be involved in an accident.

Public train and bus accidents, for instance, are not common, but these do happen from time to time. If you rely on this type of transportation, you hope that the driver is safe at all times and that the vehicle is in good working condition.
