What are CLASBIs and how can they be prevented?

Unfortunately, doctor errors and substandard care often occur in New York, and elsewhere. In some cases, this leads to serious medical ailments, including the development of central line-associated bloodstream infections, which may cause patients’ conditions to worsen or become deadly. In fact, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports that central line-associated bloodstream infections, or CLASBIs, result in between 10,426 and 25,145 deaths each year. Despite the serious issue posed by these serious infections, however, there are things that health care providers and patients can do to reduce the occurrence of CLASBIs.

Repetitive stress injuries and New York workers’ compensation

Workers in nearly every field and occupation have some risk of suffering work-related injuries or deaths.

While bumps, bruises and broken bones are all common on the job injuries, many people also develop repetitive motion injuries on the job.

Medical issues may have led to fatal truck crash in New York

Emergency medical situations can, and do, occur at any time and in any place. As such, truckers and other motorists in New York, and other localities, may experience debilitating medical emergencies while they are behind the wheel. This type of situation could easily result in truck accidents, which may have devastating consequences for the truckers themselves, as well as those with whom they are sharing the road.

Can you take legal action if you are injured while trespassing?

If you were not on the property lawfully, however, you may not have grounds to take legal action.
