Failure to diagnose may stem from busy outpatient clinics

When people seek medical attention from a physician in an outpatient clinic or emergency room, they expect to be given a diagnosis and possibly a treatment plan that will help them feel better. Studies show, however, that people who leave these medical settings may either be leaving with the wrong diagnosis or without receiving a proper diagnosis at all.

Understanding the SSDI appeals process

Filing for Social Security Disability Insurance in Maryland can be a long and grueling process. In some cases, it can take months to hear back from the SSA regarding a decision on a claim for disability benefits. When an SSDI application is filled out incorrectly or has information missing, the claim may be denied. Furthermore, the administration may make a decision to deny your claim based on information they received from a physician or employer. People who had had their claim denied but feel as though they are entitled to benefits can appeal the SSA’s decision to deny the case.

Enforcement office directing traffic injured in collision

Law enforcement officers face many dangers while on-the-job. Some of those dangers come from working alongside busy roads. Laws and regulations are put in place to help these people stay safe while working. Despite these laws, however, negligent, drunk and otherwise reckless drivers pose a serious threat to road construction workers, law officers and all other people who must fight traffic in order to get the job done.

How to ensure your vehicle is ready for winter

As the winter months are quickly approaching, motorists in Maryland should start preparing for inclement weather conditions. In 2015 alone, 35,092 people across the nation were killed in motor vehicle accidents. A number of those catastrophic collisions were caused by people driving recklessly in icy, snowy, windy, rainy and foggy weather. Furthermore, vehicles that are not prepared to drive in hazardous weather may skid, slide or break down while navigating the roadways.

Understanding the dangers of mesothelioma

Mesothelioma, a rare and devastating form of cancer, can take decades to show up in people who have had prolonged exposure to asbestos and other harmful chemicals. It often occurs in people in Maryland and across the U.S. who have worked in construction, roofing, oil refineries, power plants and other fields where they are forced to inhale toxic chemicals. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2,700 people in the U.S. die each year from mesothelioma.

Correlation between diagnosed schizophrenics and siblings

People who have physical injuries or conditions are not the only ones who may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Workers who are afflicted with mental disorders, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, may also be eligible for benefits. While many people know that these mental conditions are hereditary, research shows that people who have a sibling with the mental disorder have a significantly higher chance of being diagnosed with schizophrenia as well.
