San Antonio bus driver crashes into parked SUV

Posted on August 31st, 2011 No Comments

A bus carrying five passengers crashed into a parked SUV on Tuesday night, injuring two.

According to a San Antonio police detective, the VIA Metropolitan Transit bus was traveling north on Flores Street around 9:45 pm when it crashed into a parked GMC Suburban. The collision caused the Suburban to slam into a pole before being dragged into a grassy area.

Out of the five passengers on the bus, two were taken to Metropolitan Methodist Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A woman passenger hit her mouth against a pole in the bus, and a man bruised his chest when he hit a support post during the crash. The driver did not sustain any injuries.

The bus driver did not appear drowsy or intoxicated, and it is believed that the accidental crash occurred due to the dark color of the vehicle and bad lighting conditions.

Heart attacks often misdiagnosed, chest pain severity not an indicator

Posted on August 19th, 2011 No Comments

A recent study completed by researchers at the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania declares that chest pain severity and duration are not indicators of heart attack.  In analyzing 3,300 patients entering the hospital with chest pain, researchers found that patients with more severe or long-lasting chest pain were not more likely to suffer a heart attack than those with less severe or less-lasting pain.

Approximately 2 to 5 percent of patients who go to hospitals because they are experiencing a heart attack are misdiagnosed and discharged from the hospital.  In addition, about 30 percent of paid-out medical malpractice claims are to patients who had heart attacks but were wrongly diagnosed.

The study notes that pain from a heart attack can not only be located in the chest, but also in the arms, jaw, abdomen, and back.  Also, the study explains that just because a patient is experiencing severe or long-lasting chest pain does not mean they are not experiencing a heart attack.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a wrong diagnosis or other type of medical malpractice, contact the San Antonio wrong diagnosis lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999 to learn more about how we can help you.

Washington Woman Files Dog Bite Lawsuit Against Campground Owners

Posted on August 11th, 2011 No Comments

A woman in Washington has filed a dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a West Virginia campground.

According to U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia documents, Jessica Barker filed the dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a Bruceton Mills, W.V. campground. The lawsuit names Christopher Ogden, Rebecca Ogden, Alyeska Inc., Big Bear Lake Country Store, Big Bear Lake Real Estate, Big Bear Lake Property Owners Association Inc., and Bear Foot springs as defendants.

According to the lawsuit, the Ogdens owned, leased and/or rented a site at the campground. Barker says the family owned a “vicious and dangerous dog.” The lawsuit claims the defendants knew that the dog was violent and that it had previously attacked and bitten, or attempted to attack and bite, other individuals at the campground.

“The dog was known by all Defendants to be aggressive and a danger to Plaintiff and the public,” the lawsuit alleges.

Barker was a guest at the campground on May 21, 2010 when she was attacked and severely bitten by the Ogdens’ dog, the lawsuit says. As a result of the attack, Barker claims she suffered severe permanent injuries, tissue loss to her right forearm, puncture wounds to her left calf, and severe emotional distress. She is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
