Diagnostic issues comprise the majority of breast cancer claims

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it is it important for women at risk to understand their diagnosis and treatment options. Knowing how to care for yourself can go a long way in the healing process. While a patient cannot prevent a medical mistake, they may be able to take action to quickly set themselves on the path to recovery. San Diegan women at risk for breast cancer can take their health in their own hands by being proactive and seeking justice when medical malpractice occurs.

Resident: San Diego pedestrian accident not surprising

Even when drivers exhibit extreme caution, accidents can happen. Some intersections are known to be more dangerous than others, which is all the more reason for San Diego drivers to drive gently. Responsibility behind the wheel means looking out for other vehicles as well as people on foot, as a pedestrian accident can happen just as easily as an auto collision.

An exhausted hospital staff can result in medical malpractice

If you are seriously injured or sick, odds are you will head to your local hospital in San Diego for treatment. Sterile sheets, beeping machines and brightly lit rooms typically paint the landscape for healing and recovery. However, humans run hospitals, and humans make mistakes. In fact, medical malpractice can mean leaving a hospital in worse condition than when you entered it.

San Diego neighbors fear pit bull attacks

It is common for people to feel threatened by or afraid of dogs, especially ones with which they aren't familiar. In San Diego, both pet owners and individuals have a role to play in preventing a dog bite or attack. It is important to know how to act around any animal, whether you are familiar with it or not.

Nature of horses at center of discussion by state courts

While animals may be cute and seem cuddly, it's often important to remember that animals are not human beings and may not understand emotions. It may be impossible to predict how an animal will act when put in a particular situation, and even the most mild-mannered creatures may snap given the right conditions. Because of this it is extremely important for California animal owners to pay close attention to their animals and always restrain them properly when others are around to prevent physical and psychological injuries, particularly to children.
