Cell phone ban urged for drivers across the country

Posted on December 15th, 2011 No Comments

On Tuesday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Board released a proposal for a nationwide ban on all cell phone use  while driving.

This proposal came after a tragic car accident in August 2010 in Gray Summit, MO that left two dead and injured 38 others.  The driver of the pickup truck that caused the accident was a 19 year old who sent 11 text messages in 11 minutes before the incident.

According to Chairwoman Deborah A.P. Hersman of the NHTSB, “More than 3,000 people lost their lives last year in distraction-related accidents…no call, no text, no update, is worth a human life.”

San Antonio, in addition to Austin, El Paso, and Arlington, banned texting while driving in October of 2010.  Though the NHTSB cannot actually pass any laws banning cell phone use, this proposal sends a very clear and strong message to legislatures that are responsible for changing such laws.

Automated defibrillators may save fewer lives

Posted on December 1st, 2011 No Comments

Ten years ago, based on a recommendation by the American Heart Association, hospitals across the country purchased millions of dollars worth of automated defibrillators made to help save lives in the event of a patient going into cardiac arrest.

New research, however, has shown that this equipment may have been a mistake, and that the older, low-tech defibrillators in fact save more lives.  Committee members of the American Heart Association endorsed the new products because they were designed so lesser-skilled hospital employees could operate them.

Chair of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, Dr. Steven Nissen, stated, “Why would we want to dumb things down to a level of having a machine do the thinking for us?”

If you have lost a loved one from the failure of an automated defibrillator, contact San Antonio personal injury attorneys of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers today at (210) 999-9999 and let us fight for you.
