Misdiagnosis can lead to medical malpractice claims

A medical misdiagnosis can be life-changing for Pennsylvania patients. The thought of undergoing invasive treatment and months of radiation or delaying treatment because one was informed that he or she was not in need of treatment can have far reaching implications. Although the occurrence is rare, a medical misdiagnosis still happens, and the patient is left to navigate the options of what treatment is best. When the diagnosis turns out to be incorrect, a medical malpractice claim could follow.

Victims of a negligent driver and his or her family often suffer heartbreaking losses because of the car accidents that often follow such a poor choice.

How do self-driving cars work?

For years, people have been excited about the prospect of autonomous, or self-driving, vehicles. How convenient would it be to sit in your own vehicle, program your destination into the computer and then sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee and your morning news apps while your car drives you to work? However, we still have a long way to go until technology like this is available for the public – and reasonably safe. As a recent, fatal accident illustrated, autonomous technology may not yet be ready for consumers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
