Motor vehicle accidents: 2 airlifted to hospital after crash

A moment of inattention or a brief bout with fatigue are just two examples of scenarios that could leave a driver more susceptible to losing control and veering off course. Motor vehicle accidents involving a vehicle that has drifted off the road or into another lane of traffic run the unfortunate risk of placing the safety of those involved at risk. Two individuals were airlifted to a medical facility with severe injuries following a recent collision in Illinois.

Authorities say they responded to reports of the crash on a recent Friday night. Initial investigations suggest the incident occurred after the driver of a car lost control and veered slightly off the road. Police say the driver proceeded to over-correct and drift into oncoming lanes of traffic before colliding head-on with a pickup truck.

Why would your doctor order an emergency C-section?

Women have been having babies for centuries, eons in fact. It is one of the most natural processes in nature. So, when you found out you were pregnant, you probably never thought that you would have anything but a normal experience. You may expect swollen feet, food cravings and mood swings, but other than that, you didn't expect anything serious.

However, you could experience complications that would make your pregnancy anything but normal, especially as you reach your due date. These complications could arise quickly and require you to forgo a natural birth.

Motor vehicle accidents: Head-on crash proves fatal

When a driver loses control of a vehicle and shifts into the opposite lanes of traffic, oncoming drivers may find it nearly impossible to react quickly enough to prevent an unfortunate scenario. Motor vehicle accidents involving similar situations can have disastrous results that could place the health of everyone involved in danger. Two people were injured and another was killed during a recent multiple-vehicle accident in Illinois.

Authorities say they received reports of the crash just before 7:30 p.m. on a recent Wednesday. According to reports, the accident occurred when for unknown reasons, the driver of a westbound car suddenly lost control and veered into a nearby ditch. The car proceeded to ramp off the side of the ditch and go airborne before entering oncoming lanes of traffic, subsequently causing a multiple-vehicle crash involving four vehicles in total.

Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured in single-car crash

While most drivers might not plan on being involved in an accident as they start out their day, a collision can take place at any moment and under a variety of scenarios. In some cases, it may take as little as a moment of distraction for a driver to lose control and veer off the road. Even motor vehicle accidents that involve only a single vehicle can still have disastrous results. Two individuals suffered serious injuries in a recent single-car collision in Illinois.

Law enforcement agents say they responded to the scene of a single-vehicle accident just after noon on a recent Friday. According to initial investigations, the incident occurred when, for reasons unknown, the driver of a southbound vehicle suddenly lost control and veered across the median. Police say the vehicle proceeded to run off the road and overturn.

What are the long-term implications of vaping?

When you started vaping, it's likely you thought it was safe – at least safer than smoking cigarettes. Many people started this habit with the assumption that it was not especially risky, but medical evidence now seems to indicate otherwise. There is now reason to believe that vaping may actually cause long-term damage in the lungs. 

Electronic cigarettes and the vaping phenomenon are still relatively new, so medical professionals are still learning about the long-term implications of them. While there is still much to learn about how it can hurt a person's respiratory system, you may have serious concerns about what it could mean for your personal health. People can vape products with nicotine, and they may also vape marijuana and other substances that could be dangerous. Estimates suggest that over seven million people use e-cigarettes in the United States.

Injuries people often suffer in electric scooter accidents

Electric scooters are a fun mode of transportation that is growing in popularity, especially in tourism and in cities where cheap transportation is in demand. Riding on one of these scooters may seem risk-free, but in reality, it can come with certain risks. In fact, for every 100,000 elective scooter trips, approximately 20 people suffer injuries. 

Scooters can be enjoyable, but it is not always easy to maintain balance. People on scooters are also vulnerable to injuries in accidents involving careless drivers. There is growing evidence that suggests that riding an e-scooter may not be as much of a carefree activity as it is a growing public safety concern. When e-scooter accidents happen, what kind of injuries do people often suffer, and who is really to blame for them?

Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured after semi runs red light

Drivers who fail to adhere to a traffic light upon approaching an intersection run a greater risk of creating a dangerous scenario. Motor vehicle accidents involving similar circumstances could leave those involved with life-altering injuries or leave family members grieving over a sudden and unexpected loss. Two individuals suffered serious injuries in a recent collision in which the driver of a tractor-trailer ran through a red light in Illinois.

The accident is said to have taken place on a recent Sunday just after 6 p.m. Law enforcement agents have advised that it occurred when the driver of a tractor-trailer failed to stop for a red light upon approaching an intersection. The truck reportedly struck a nearby vehicle after entering the intersection and then proceeded to roll into a third vehicle shortly thereafter.

Motor vehicle accidents: 1 killed in crash involving semi

Due to the substantial increases in size and weight, drivers of commercial vehicles must allow additional time to slow down upon approaching a halt in traffic. Those who fail to allow sufficient time and space to stop run a greater risk of creating an unfortunate scenario, as motor vehicle accidents involving tractor-trailers can have cataclysmic consequences. A recent accident involving a semi has reportedly claimed the life of one person in Illinois.

Authorities say they responded to reports of the accident on a recent Tuesday afternoon. Initial investigations indicate the crash occurred after the driver of a tractor-trailer failed to slow down for a sudden halt in traffic. The truck reportedly proceeded to crash into the rear of a nearby car and the impact of the crash forced the car to be caught between the truck and a second semi before being forced off the road.

Did something go wrong when you went to the doctor?

When you go to the doctor, you expect that the care you receive will help you get better, not make your condition worse. While most doctors are careful and provide adequate care, medical mistakes do happen occasionally. In most cases, these types of errors are preventable. People who experience medical mistakes of any kind may find that they have to deal with additional pain, more treatment and a longer recovery.

Illinois hospitals, doctors and other types of medical facilities have systems in place designed to prevent mistakes and oversights. However, there is always room to improve and review existing systems to make sure that nothing is missing that could protect patient safety. If your condition got worse as the result of subpar care or a medical mistake, you do not have to suffer in silence. It is possible you are the victim of malpractice.
