Are Consolidated Healthcare Systems Really Better for Patient Care?

For most people in Arkansas, the days of seeing their regular doctor in a small, physician-run office are long gone. Now, when we seek medical care, we are frequently sitting in the waiting room of a larger, corporate-run healthcare system.

filing a car accident claim

Becoming involved in a vehicle accident is stressful, whether you are fully or partially at fault for it or didn’t contribute to its occurrence at all. 

Arkansas law affords you the right to seek compensation for your injuries and other accident-related damages by filing a claim with the at-fault motorist’s insurer so long as you are deemed to be less than 50% liable for its occurrence. 

However, not all drivers who are at fault for a crash survive it. What options do you have for seeking compensation for your damages in situations like these?

How Common Are Wrong-Way Accidents?

wrong-way accident

Wrong-way accidents are relatively rare compared to other types of accidents—like rear-end collisions, T-bone crashes, or blind spot accidents. Wrong-way collisions are estimated to comprise roughly 1% of motor vehicle fatalities—about 300-400 deaths a year.

When a wrong-way accident does occur, the outcome is usually quite severe. A wrong-way collision is typically a head-on collision or a high-speed sideswipe. This involves two vehicles driving directly toward one another prior to impact. The force of collision often leaves drivers and passengers with catastrophic injuries. Many wrong-way accidents are fatal to vehicle occupants, especially those in the front seat.

Which Types of Crosswalks Are Safest?

All pedestrians in Arkansas have the right to crosswalks that allow them to safely cross the road without unreasonable delays. However, if you’ve spent any time at all as a pedestrian, you’ll have noticed that not all crosswalks are created equally.

Design plays an important role in how safe a given crosswalk is. At McMath Woods P.A., we know that pedestrians are safest in crosswalks that utilize raised crosswalks, rapid flashing beacons, or other enhanced designs. Here are our top picks for the safest types of crosswalks.

What Types of Medical Errors Are Most Common Among Emergency Room Physicians?

No one wants to spend their time in the emergency room. Unfortunately, visiting the emergency room (ER) is sometimes a necessity. Whether you were involved in a car accident, suffered a fall, or were otherwise injured, the emergency room is often the best place to receive immediate medical care.

There are ample opportunities for things to go wrong in the ER, though. Around 130 million people go to the emergency room every year in the United States, and the sheer volume of patients can leave hospital staff overwhelmed. Nurses and doctors who do not have adequate time to properly evaluate or treat patients are more likely to make medical errors like misdiagnoses or other diagnostic errors.
