Study reveals misconception in spinal injury theory

New York victims of serious spinal cord injuries may be interested to hear about a potentially game-changing study published in April 2016. Researchers believe they have proven that the scars associated with spinal cord injuries could actually promote nerve growth. For the more than 12,000 U.S. residents who sustain such injuries each year, these conclusions may result in improved treatments.

The risks posed by a distracted driver who is talking on a cellphone or texting and driving have resulted in the passage of laws to restrict the practices in New York and other states.

Those eligible to file a cerebral palsy lawsuit

Finding out about the history of doctors

When New Yorkers are going to see doctors about a medical condition, they may want to find out about those practitioners and their ability to treat patients. However, there is a lot of information about doctors that is not available to most people. Consumer Reports researched the issue and discovered that even if a doctor has a history of misconduct or has been sued for malpractice, potential patients may have no way of finding out about it.
