What can be done about a single car accident?

When people think of car accidents, they usually envision two vehicles colliding with each other, but this is not always the case. It is possible for one car to crash due to outside factors. Just because other drivers were not involved does not mean you are out of luck when filing a claim. You may be able to seek compensation for the injuries and damages, especially if the crash was caused by someone or something else.

Misdiagnosis and Medical Malpractice

Diagnosing a medical condition isn't an easy task, regardless of how much experience a health care provider might have, but most people count on their doctor's ability to do just that. However, getting a diagnosis wrong is far from rare. According to an article from U.S. News, a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine research study estimated that death and/or permanent damage happens nearly 160,000 times each year because of misdiagnosis. Some estimates say that patients may receive the wrong diagnosis as much as 30% of the time, and while in some cases it makes no substantial difference, in others it may be the difference between life and death.

Successful Ways to Defend Against Charges of Drug Possession

If you find yourself under investigation or facing charges, don't assume the evidence against you is so substantial that accepting a plea agreement is your only option. There is always an effective defense and the sooner you put an experienced South Carolina drug charges defense lawyer on your side, the better chance you have of protecting your rights and your future.
