A direct communication system, usually telephone, established for instant contact. It is designed to provide special information and assistance through trained personnel and is used for counseling, referrals, and emergencies such as poisonings and threatened suicides.
Genetic mechanisms that allow GENES to be expressed at a similar level irrespective of their GENE DOSAGE. This term is usually used in discussing genes that lie on the SEX CHROMOSOMES. Because the sex chromosomes are only partially homologous, there is a different copy number, i.e., dosage, of these genes in males vs. females. In DROSOPHILA, dosage compensation is accomplished by hypertranscription of genes located on the X CHROMOSOME. In mammals, dosage compensation of X chromosome genes is accomplished by random X CHROMOSOME INACTIVATION of one of the two X chromosomes in the female.
Unforeseen occurrences, especially injuries in the course of work-related activities.
Injuries sustained from incidents in the course of work-related activities.
Diseases caused by factors involved in one's employment.
Individual or group aggressive behavior which is socially non-acceptable, turbulent, and often destructive. It is precipitated by frustrations, hostility, prejudices, etc.
Involuntary movements of the eye that are divided into two types, jerk and pendular. Jerk nystagmus has a slow phase in one direction followed by a corrective fast phase in the opposite direction, and is usually caused by central or peripheral vestibular dysfunction. Pendular nystagmus features oscillations that are of equal velocity in both directions and this condition is often associated with visual loss early in life.

An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus (POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)

Does justice require genetic enhancements? (1/129)

It is argued that justice in some cases provides a pro tanto reason genetically to enhance victims of the genetic lottery. Various arguments--both to the effect that justice provides no such reason and to the effect that while there may be such reasons, they are overridden by certain moral constraints--are considered and rejected. Finally, it is argued that justice provides stronger reasons to perform more traditional medical tasks (treatments), and that therefore genetic enhancements should not play an important role in a public health care system.  (+info)

Paying research subjects: participants' perspectives. (2/129)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the opinions of unpaid healthy volunteers on the payment of research subjects. DESIGN: Prospective cohort. SETTING: Southern Alberta, Canada. PARTICIPANTS: Medically eligible persons responding to recruiting advertisements for a randomised vaccine trial were invited to take part in a study of informed consent at the point at which they formally consented or refused trial participation. Of 72 invited, 67 (62 trial consenters, 5 trial refusers) returned questionnaires at baseline and 54 at follow-up. OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportions of persons who agreed or disagreed with three close-ended statements on the payment of research subjects; themes and categories identified by content analysis of responses to an open-ended question. RESULTS: A minority (43.3%) agreed with paying either patient or healthy volunteer participants. Opinions did not change over time. Participants' comments addressed: benefits and drawbacks to research participation; benefits and drawbacks to paying research participants; conditions under which payment of research subjects would be acceptable, and the nature of acceptable recognition. Acceptable conditions were to improve problematic recruitment, to reimburse costs, and to recognise participants, particularly for their time investment. Both non-monetary and monetary recognition of volunteers were thought to be appropriate. CONCLUSIONS: Most unpaid volunteers disagreed with paying research participants. The themes arising from their comments are similar to those that have been raised by ethicists and suggest that recognising the time and effort of participants should receive greater emphasis than presently occurs.  (+info)

Recruitment and motivation of semen providers in Sweden. (5/129)

BACKGROUND: Legislation in Sweden requires that semen providers are prepared to be identified to offspring (at maturity) should this be requested. This study presents views of semen providers in Sweden regarding factors associated with their recruitment and motivation. METHODS: All semen providers (n = 30) in two clinics in different parts of Sweden participated in a questionnaire survey and both quantitative and qualitative data are reported. RESULTS: While there were some important demographic differences between the two clinic populations, there was total agreement that the desire to assist infertile couples was the sole or main motivating factor in becoming a semen provider. Monetary reward was not reported by respondents to be an important motivator, although at least 50% of the providers in both clinics thought that payment should be made and reimbursement of expenses was reported as being important. Men responded to both advertising and personal experiences or contacts they had with infertile couples. The involvement and support of the semen provider's partner was regarded as important. CONCLUSIONS: Semen providers can be recruited within a system that requires them to be prepared to be identified to offspring in the future. The characteristics of such providers vary, but are typified by a strong desire to assist infertile couples.  (+info)

Developing scientific and policy methods that support precautionary action in the face of uncertainty--the Institute of Medicine Committee on Agent Orange. (6/129)

To be precautionary, decisions must be made to prevent the impacts of potentially harmful activities even though the nature and magnitude of harm have not been proven scientifically. The Institute of Medicine's Committee on the Health Effects in Vietnam Veterans of Exposures to Herbicides provides a novel example of science and policy structures that support precautionary action in the face of uncertainty. What makes this example unique is the clear set of precautionary decision rules that lowered the standard for evidence, which formed the basis for policy. These rules, established by Congress, strongly influenced the way scientific information was weighed and the subsequent compensation decisions. They encouraged committee members to think outside the confines of their disciplines and develop new tools and methods to fit their unique mandate. The result was a methodology, supported by strong institutional structures, that allowed scientists to discuss the evidence as a whole, reach decisions as a group, and clarify uncertainties.  (+info)

Predictors and severity of injury in assaults with barglasses and bottles. (7/129)

BACKGROUND: Although glasses and bottles are frequently used as weapons in assaults, there is little knowledge on which prevention strategies can be based. DESIGN: Scrutiny of a random sample of 1288 criminal injury compensation applications. OBJECTIVE: To identify predictors and relative severity of glass and bottle injury. METHOD: Injury site, severity, treatment, and demographic characteristics of victims and assailants were studied with reference to awards from the UK national Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Gender of victims and assailants, injury sites, treatment, and award (UK pounds) as indices of injury severity. RESULTS: Annual CICA awards to all victims of assaults in licensed premises during 1996-98 amounted to pound 4.08 million (for all glass/bottle assaults: pound 1.15 million = 28%). The mean cost of 746 glass assaults was pound 2347, compared with pound 2007 for 542 injuries from bottle assaults (mean difference pound 340; p<0.01). This difference largely reflected more eye injuries with glasses (26 cases: 3% of all glass assaults) than with bottles (eight cases: 1% of all bottle assaults). Bottle assault was significantly associated with unidentified assailants and scalp injuries; whereas glass injury was significantly linked to pub opening hours (midday to midnight), Thursdays, eye and face injuries, and treatment requiring sutures. Mean age of bottle assault victims (26.1 years) was lower than of glass victims (27.3 years; p<0.01), and same gender assaults were more frequent than between gender assaults for both bottle (p<0.001) and glass (p<0.001) assaults. Female victims were allocated to lower compensation awards more frequently than male victims; this was the case for both bottle (p<0.05) and glass (p<0.01) assaults. CONCLUSIONS: Assaults with bottles caused less serious injury and resulted in lower compensation costs. Injury distribution was linked to victim gender and weapon choice, but not to assailant gender. Prevention strategies should focus on both bottle and glass assaults and should take account of the setting and time in which drinking occurs.  (+info)

Surgical adverse events, risk management, and malpractice outcome: morbidity and mortality review is not enough. (8/129)

OBJECTIVE: To review all admissions (age > 13) to three surgical patient care centers at a single academic medical center between January 1, 1995, and December 6, 1999, for significant surgical adverse events. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Little data exist on the interrelationships between surgical adverse events, risk management, malpractice claims, and resulting indemnity payments to plaintiffs. The authors hypothesized that examination of this process would identify performance improvement opportunities overlooked by standard medical peer review; the risk of litigation would be constant across the three homogeneous patient care centers; and the risk management process would exceed the performance improvement process. METHODS: Data collected included patient demographics (age, gender, and employment status), hospital financials (hospital charges, costs, and financial class), and outcome. Outcome categories were medical (disability: <1 month, 1-6 months, permanent/death), legal (no legal action, settlement, summary judgment), financial (indemnity payments, legal fees, write-offs), and cause and effect analysis. Cause and effect analysis attempts to identify system failures contributing to adverse outcomes. This was determined by two independent analysts using the 17 Harvard criteria and subdividing these into subsystem causative factors. RESULTS: The study group consisted of 130 patients with surgical adverse events resulting in total liabilities of $8.2 million US dollars. The incidence of adverse events per 1,000 admissions across the three patient care centers was similar, but indemnity payments per 1,000 admissions varied (cardiothoracic = $30 US dollars, women's health = $90 US dollars, trauma = $520 US dollars). Patient demographics were not predictive of high-risk subgroups for adverse events or litigation. In terms of medical outcome, 51 patients had permanent disability or death, accounting for 98% of the indemnity payments. In terms of legal outcome, 103 patients received no indemnity payments, 15 patients received indemnity payments, four suits remain open, and in eight cases charges were written off ($0.121 million US dollars). To date, no cases have been adjudicated in court. Cause and effect analysis identified 390 system failures contributing to the adverse events (mean 3.0 failures per adverse event); there were 4.7 failures per adverse event in the 15 indemnity cases. Five categories of causes accounted for 75% of the failures (patient management, n = 104; communication, n = 89; administration, n = 33; documentation, n = 32; behavior, n = 23). The current medical review process would have identified 104 of 390 systems failures (37%). CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates no rational link between the tort system and the reduction of adverse events. Sixty-three percent of contributing causes to adverse events were undetected by current medical review processes. Adverse events occur at the interface between different systems or disciplines and result from multiple failures. Indemnity costs per hospital day vary dramatically by patient care center (range $3.60-97.60 US dollars a day). The regionalization of healthcare is in jeopardy from the burden of high indemnity payments.  (+info)

Challenges with Filing a Claim Under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). When filing a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), what you are really doing is filing a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (commonly known as the Vaccine Court). While the VICP is designed to make it easier for individuals with vaccine injuries to recover the money they need to cover their medical bills and other losses, the government still has an interest in ensuring that it does not pay invalid claims. As a result, the government will assign experienced attorneys to defend your case. Those attorneys are there to prevent you from receiving compensation unless and until you prove that you are entitled to a financial recovery under the terms of the VICP.. In addition, the Vaccine Court has complex rules in place governing everything from when and how you file your claim to what goes on in proceedings before the Court. If you fail to follow the rules, you ...
If you are searching for the term Vaccine Injury Table, you may be looking for information about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP is a federal program which compensates persons who experience a Vaccine Injury, which occurs when a child or adult experiences certain adverse reactions after receiving one of several vaccinations covered under the NVICP.. Claims for compensation to the NVICP are made to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims located in Washington, D.C., by filing a petition. Most petitioners are represented by lawyers. An attorney representing a petitioner must be admitted to practice in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The Vaccine Injury Table refers to a chart listing the most common vaccines or immunizations administered, such as DTaP vaccine, MMR vaccine, varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, and polio vaccine for children, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) for adolescents and young adults, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis booster ...

Dr. James R. Shannon, former Director of the US National Institute of Health, has been widely quoted as saying: The only safe vaccine is one that is never used. But are adverse vaccine reactions really a big deal? Arent they just the fever and fatigue were warned about after yearly shots? Or is there more to learn?. And arent moderate and severe adverse reactions rare? Lets answer this question first.. Reactions are considered rare, in part, because reporting is rare. Unlike reporting for human vaccine reactions, required by the National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, reporting is voluntary for reactions experienced by animals. Furthermore, there is no federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for animals as there is for humans, nor is there a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). That does not mean that adverse events arent a serious a problem for animals. In fact, because animals are given numerous vaccines repeatedly (and unnecessarily) throughout their ...

The writer has become embroiled in the controversy about whether or not it is wise to vaccinate.. I have been encountering cases of vaccine injury for over 40 years. In June it was a happy, healthy nearly 5-year-old whose parents were required to put her on a catch-up schedule, in order to get her into kindergarten. She wont be going to kinder. Shes in a wheel-chair, brain-damaged. Her life ruined. Then came a friends father who died after a flu vaccine, and last week a 4 year old boy, made autistic by a catch-up schedule.. In 1988, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created. It has paid out over US$3.5 billion to the vaccine-injured. The NVICP was set up to protect vaccine manufacturers from ruinous costs of litigation by vaccine-damaged people. It was deemed preferable to have unavoidably unsafe vaccines than no vaccines. Unfortunately the protection provided to vaccine manufacturers also reduced incentives to develop safer vaccines in USA.. Politicians and doctors ...
As I reported in my column, the one exception to this drumbeat of misleading and inaccurate coverage about vaccine safety is on the local level, where correspondent Michael Chen of ABC 10 News in San Diego, California noted a case of a boy who suffered serious injuries, including fever, seizures, nervous tics and autism, as a result of two vaccines. The mother, almost in tears as she described what happened to her son, was paid $55,000 in damages through the federal program. But the damage award didnt cover the autism diagnosis. She said she wished she had more thoroughly researched the safety of vaccines.. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program grew out of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. Fisher explains what happened: The companies threatened Congress that they were going to leave the people without any childhood vaccines if they did not get liability protection.

Curtis R. Webb has represented petitioners in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program since its creation in 1988. He has represented 275 petitioners in Table and Off-Table cases, in cases involving nearly every Table vaccine. He has won compensation for catastrophically injured children injured by the DTP, DTaP, MMR, and Oral Polio vaccines and for seriously injured adults injured by the MMR, Hepatitis B, Influenza, Varicella, and HPV vaccines.. Mr. Webb represented the petitioners in several precedent setting cases, including Koston v. Secy of Health and Human Services, 974 F.2d 157 (Fed. Cir. 1992) and Shyface v. Secy of Health and Human Services, 165 F.3d 1344 (Fed. Cir. 1999). Not all of his noteworthy cases have been victories.

On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boys permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent. Like the U.S., Italy has a national vaccine injury compensation program to give some financial support to those people who are injured by compulsory and recommended vaccinations. The Italian infant plaintiff received three doses of GlaxoSmithKlines Infanrix Hexa, a hexavalent vaccine administered in the first year of life. These doses occurred from March to October 2006. The vaccine is to protect children from polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis and Haemophilus influenza type B. In addition to these antigens, however, the vaccine then contained thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative, aluminum, an adjuvant, as well as other ...

A: In the vast majority of cases, vaccines are effective and cause no side effects or only mind reactions such as fever or soreness at the injection site. Very rarely, people experience more serious side effects like allergic reactions. Severe reactions to vaccines occur so rarely that the risk is usually difficult to calculate.. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if your child has health problems or known allergies to medications or food. In the rare event a child is injured by a vaccine, he or she may be compensated through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

Rotavirus is reported to be the leading cause of diarrhea among children, causing upwards of 55,000 hospitalizations per year in the US. Symptoms consist of vomiting and diarrhea, usually lasting between 3-8 days. Subsequent bouts of rotavirus are usually milder.. When this vaccine made its debute in 1998, Ill admit to some skepticism. I laughed and said,Really? Now its death by diarrhea! When the first Rotavirus vaccine (RotaShield) was recalled in 1999, for causing intussusception, I felt justified in my stance. Especially when I found out that intussusception caused by this vaccine is a compensable injury and is paid for out of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

I never really questioned vaccine safety and I thought I understood the reasoning of why vaccines worked. I had been in a pre-med curriculum in my undergraduate study and my children were vaccinated in the 1980s when they were young. I was a practicing R.N. for many years and I received a number of vaccines during that time and I administered many. I was injured by the Hep B vaccine series in 1992-93, but no one was very interested in reporting or tracking that injury. I began studying vaccination in 2009 when I was out on a disability leave of absence.. There is an explosion of vaccine related injuries occurring across our country. There is something very, very wrong happening to our children; many are suffering from allergies, neurological and immune-system damage. In 1986 the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed where The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Board was formed by Congress at the bequest of the vaccine manufacturers because they were being inundated with lawsuits ...
Waking Times. Yet another shocking blow has been delivered to people who still ardently claim that vaccines are safe and effective, and that the only complications they can cause are mild. The US government department for Health Resources and Services Administration has recently released the running tally of the just-past-half-way-complete US Fiscal Year (FY) of 2017 for compensable vaccine injuries. It currently stands at over $142 million dollars. You read that right. That covers the 377 cases that were thus far successful in obtaining compensation in fiscal year 2017 through the heavily biased (to put it politely) system allegedly in place to redress damage done by vaccines in the USA.. At the rate things are going, we might expect the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to pay out around $220 million or more by the close of FY 2017.

Ron Homer, Boston, Massachusetts, for Petitioner.. R. Lynne Harris, United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC, for Respondent.. DECISION French, Special Master.. This case arises under 42 U.S.C. 300aa-1 et seq., the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act of 1986. (1) Petitioner filed her petition on February 15, 1994, claiming that as the result of a Tetanus Toxoid vaccine (hereinafter sometimes TT) administered on February 15, 1991, she sustained a post-vaccinal myelitis, an autoimmune demyelinating disease with permanent neurological sequelae. Respondent defends by arguing that her condition is consistent with Multiple Sclerosis, (hereinafter MS), a factor unrelated to the vaccine. (2) Procedural Background A hearing was held in Washington, D.C. by telephone conference call on August 21, 1997. Inasmuch as the facts in this case were not contested, the hearing was confined to the testimony of medical experts. Petitioner presented the testimony of Alan Scott Levin, M.D., J.D. ...
Directors of the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA), parents and vaccine-injured children will hold a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (717 Madison Place, NW in Washington, DC) on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM to unveil an investigation linking vaccine injury to autism. For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism. This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate ...
Part 1. By Myvaccinelawyer As an attorney focusing my practice on representing people injured by vaccines, I am well-versed in the vaccine claims process. Unfortunately, many people are not even aware that there is a legal recourse for such vaccine-related injuries. The law provides only three years from the start of symptoms to file a claim, and unfortunately clients often call when it is too late. Usually they inform me that they did not even know about this program. It is our goal to change this by spreading the word about the vaccine claims program. It is a fact that vaccines can hurt people. The Vaccine Compensation Trust Fund was created solely to compensate people who are afflicted with injuries, conditions, or reactions after receiving vaccines. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is a Federal program created to provide compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines. The VICP was created by Congress in 1986 as a no-fault alternative to the traditional tort ...
Theres convincing evidence that some vaccines can cause some adverse effects, including seizures, brain inflammation, and fainting, according to a new report from the Institute of Medicine.. But the evidence also favors rejecting the idea that some vaccines cause type 1 diabetes or autism, the institute said.. The 647-page report was commissioned in 2009 by the Health Resources and Services Administration, which administers the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The agency asked the institute to review the evidence linking eight vaccines and a suite of possible adverse effects that have been the subject of compensation claims.. All told, an expert panel convened by the institute found convincing evidence that 14 adverse effects can be caused by eight vaccines - those against varicella zoster, influenza, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, human papillomavirus (HPV), measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), and meningococcus, as well as tetanus-containing vaccines that do not carry the whole-cell pertussis ...
Vaccine manufacturers have paid out nearly $2B in damages to parents in America whose children were harmed by one of the childhood jabs such as the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) or DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus). In all, around 2,000 families have received compensation payments that have averaged $850,000 each. There are a further 700 claims that are going through the pipeline. None of the claims is for autism as medical researchers say they have failed to find a link between the disease and the MMR vaccine, despite the initial findings made by Dr Andrew Wakefield. Instead they are for a wide spectrum of physical and mental conditions that are likely to have been caused by one of the vaccinations. Around 7,000 parents have filed a claim of an adverse reaction with Americas Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). To win an award, the claimant must prove a causal link to a vaccine. As the medical establishment has refused to recognise any link to autism, the VICP has so far rejected 300 ...
In this case parents brought a claim for damages for the vaccine-related injury of their son. They alleged that as a result of the administration of a DPT vaccine he suffered a hypotonic-hyporesponsive collapse and encephalopathy and residual seizure disorder. The parents further maintain that the injuries resulted in permanent disabilities involving significant developmental delay, moderate autistic characteristics, and mental retardation.. The court found that the claimants were entitled to compensation, concluding that the DPT was the presumed cause.. Sorenson v. HHS, 1990 WL 290491 (Cl.Ct.). In offering these examples of support for the proposition that vaccines can and have caused mental retardation along with neurological deficits and other cognitive problems, we are mindful of the difference between causation in law and causality in science. In particular, we are mindful of the standards applicable in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. But these are the sources of data ...

Combinations - Administering several vaccines at once is an even greater recipe for disaster. Reports from the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (see references) indicate that the most deaths have occurred when vaccine combinations were administered. These include the DPT, DaPT and the MMR. Also, combinations of individual vaccines are often given at a single doctor visit to save time and trouble. This is a very unwise practice, according to government statistics.. Healthy people are much less susceptible to all illness. This should be obvious, but bears repeating. There is no substitute for eating well, resting adequately and living healthfully. Any other approach to your health is risky, at best. Vaccines are known to weaken the body and thus worsen general health.. Most infectious diseases are benign. Polio is completely benign in more than 95 percent of cases. Many people have had it without even realizing it. It appears as a flu-like syndrome that passes without a problem, if ...

Even though Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court have declared that FDA licensed vaccines are unavoidably unsafe for the purpose of banning product liability lawsuits against drug companies, 52 53 54 government officials still want you to believe that vaccines are 100 percent safe for you, your children and everyone you know 100 percent of the time. The Its your fault, not the fault of our vaccines defense is the ultimate free pass the pharmaceutical and medical trade industries are determined to get so they can keep on telling lies like it would be safe to give babies 10,000 vaccines at once 55 to justify forcing one-size-fits-all vaccine policies on all children and adults - no exceptions and no questions asked. 56 ...
I could not find a more direct way of contacting you than this. I really have to thank you so much! Thanks for being a brave voice and for taking action! I am so grateful to have found the truth about vaccines before my first child was born. I have 3 healthy unvaccinated children, and I desperately want to keep it that way! The fight against big pharma and vaccines is overwhelming! I have felt so small and so powerless most of the time, always knowing that something had to be done before we become completely stripped of our rights. Tonight I saw a video centered around vaccine injured and vaccine death victims, where you inspired so many to fight, to stand up. I believe so deeply in fighting for human rights, that I have been driven to begin my pursuit of a Law Degree. The main drive for my pursuit is the fight against vaccines. Thank you for giving me more of a drive. I sobbed so hard, begging God for the power to fight against this grave injustice while watching the video your son shot! I will ...

However, despite the fact that the process can be a time consuming one it is never a good idea to settle a whiplash injury compensation claim directly with an insurer as people could be left out of pocket in the long run.. Recently, the Liverpool Daily Post reported that insurance companies are increasingly contacting accident victims in order to try and settle things like a whiplash injury compensation claim as swiftly as possible.. In some cases, they will look to settle a whiplash injury compensation claim within hours of the accident.. However, although it may seem tempting to get the money as quickly as possible, settling a whiplash injury compensation claim in this manner may leave people out of pocket in the long run.. The newspaper highlighted the case of one woman who accepted an offer from an insurance company over the phone, but after a firm of solicitors intervened she was later awarded 15 times more than she had originally agreed to, so clearly it pays to get proper legal advice ...
Posted: August 19th, 2014. A woman´s passenger whiplash injury compensation claim has been settled for $3.1 million after a trial at the Superior Court of California in Pasadena.. Teresa Gamage (59) from Beverley Hills in California brought her passenger whiplash injury compensation claim after being hurt in a low-impact collision in May 2011. The vehicle in which Teresa was a front seat passenger was waiting at a red light near Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles when it was rear-ended at low speed by a car driven by Estelle Roitblat.. Teresa immediately felt a pain in her neck and attended her doctor the same day. An MRI scan revealed that Teresa had ruptured the C5-6 disc in her neck and, due to the soft tissue injuries also sustained in the accident, it was pressing against her spinal cord and causing her considerable pain.. Doctors attempted to manage the pain with epidural injections and physical therapy, but in November 2011 Teresa had to undergo fusion surgery. Due to the costs of the ...

The hip is a strong bone and joint which performs an extremely important role in the body. It secures the top of the femur bone in the upper leg and supports the full weight of the body when standing or moving. Due to the strength of the region, it usually takes a serious accident with high impact on the bone to cause a break in the hip bone. However, older people are more susceptible to this kind of injury due to the more fragile nature of their bones.. A hip injury that results in the fracture of the bone usually results in surgery and chronic and severe pain. Normally, a sustained period of immobility is necessary for recovery due to the bodys inability to bear weight correctly. This immobility can cause problems itself, such as deep vein thrombosis, where a blood clot develops and travels around the body.

Compensation health research aims to study the influence of compensation systems, processes and practices on health and health-related outcomes. In many jurisdictions, injury compensation authorities collect substantial volumes of case and service level data for the purpose of administering the compensation system. An important secondary use of such data is research and analysis to explore interactions between individuals and organisations in compensation systems, and between compensation and other systems including healthcare and legal systems, in order to understand the role of compensation processes in injury recovery. The Compensation Research Database (CRD) established at the Institute for Safety Compensation and Recovery Research at Monash University, holds over 20 years of population-based data for transport and workplace injury in the state of Victoria, Australia. The CRD is unique in that it is held independently, at arms length from the compensation authorities that collect the data, and its

Land use/land cover change will have a certain impact on the regional ecological environment. This study uses the questionnaire survey method, an opportunity cost method and a logistic model to evaluate the suitability of an ecological compensation standard for a winter- wheat-fallow cropping system in a groundwater funnel area in Hebei. The main factors affecting farmers willingness to fallow fields provide a theoretical basis for scientifically and rationally developing a rotation policy in the groundwater funnel area. The results indicate the following: (1) nearly 87% of the surveyed farmers would accept a winter-wheat-fallow policy, whereas 13% would not; (2) farmer educational level, the total number of participants in the agricultural labor force, dependency rate, farmers attitudes toward a winter wheat-fallow policy in the groundwater funnel area and the farmer level of trust in government policy have significant positive effects farmer intention to fallow, whereas the number of days of

Given the absence of a framework to set a national vaccine-safety research agenda, the National Vaccine Plan should call for expanded funding for safety research and include establishing a permanent group to advise the government on safety issues, the report says. Little vaccine research supported by the National Institutes of Health appears to be geared toward safety, the committee noted. Moreover, as the number and kinds of vaccines have increased, funding to monitor safety has not. The monitoring system has successfully caught problems such as a rare but severe intestinal injury linked to a discontinued rotavirus vaccine, but the Immunization Safety Office within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention needs more resources to do its work. A new vaccine safety advisory group could guide efforts to address potential safety concerns and the development of a research agenda with clear priorities ...

When Obama was seeking the Presidency, the GLBT community had a well-defined punch list of action items, and he promised big things on all of them: repeal of DADT; repeal of DOMA (although he doesnt support marriage equality); passing ENDA; passing inclusive hate crimes law (the only hole punched so far). A few others, notably the administrative implementation of the-then recent repeal of the insane prohibition against HIV-positive immigrants, were perhaps further down on the list, but also up for discussion. Conspicuously absent from the mainstream agenda has been an item of interest to the public health community: lifting of the ban on gay blood donors.. So I was buoyed to see that just a few days ago, a group of sixteen U.S. Senators sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, urging the agency to reconsider its twenty-seven-year-old lifetime ban (deferral is the quaint term used, but its politely Orwellian in this case) on blood donations for men who have had even one sexual ...

According to a study conducted by the National Council on Compensation Insurance, workers compensation claims involving comorbidities have nearly tripled since 2000. Further, the average cost of workers compensation claims connected to a comorbid condition totals almost twice as much as that of comparable claims that dont involve comorbidities.. This increase in workers compensation costs is likely tied to the often complex, long-term nature of claims that involve comorbidities. Individuals who have comorbid conditions typically take longer to heal from an injury, are more prone to develop additional complications due to an injury and are even at an increased risk of being left permanently disabled by an injury.. For example, an employee who already has diabetes would be more likely to suffer an infection or even require an amputation procedure following an injury to one of their legs on the job. While diabetes wouldnt be listed as the cause of the employees injury, the presence of this ...
The most common accidents are when lifting or moving heavy objects at work, and indeed, back injuries are a common reason for work absence.
