The arrival of spring means more kids injured on playgrounds

The arrival of a beautiful Oklahoma spring means better weather and the chance for kids who have been cooped up to get out and play. They're clamoring for a trip to the playground.

The first outing of the spring is a good time for parents to check the playground for safety. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that each year, more than 200,000 kids who are 14 and under are seen in emergency rooms for injuries suffered on the playground. More than 10 percent of the children are diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, including concussions.

Work with an attorney to benefit your workers' compensation case

You go to work every morning and expect to return home each night in the same shape you were in to start the day. But on-the-job accidents occur frequently, however, and your injuries could keep you out of work for some time.

If you're injured, the human resources staff for your employer likely will fill out an accident report and send you off for treatment. They're on your side and will see to it you get all the pay you have coming to you, you think.

These 2 driving tips save lives

Driving safe, in a way that avoids the threat of car accidents and injuries, should be the highest priority of every motorist. But look around at your fellow drivers on the road, and you'll quickly discover that most motorists are not doing what it takes to stay safe. Instead, they're doing the opposite: They're speeding, using smartphones, eating, putting on makeup, not using seat belts, speeding through yellow lights, tailgating and more. These bad driving habits are putting everyone on the road at risk of getting hurt.

Since it's clear that drivers need a reminder of how it's best to stay safe, here are two safe driving practices you should definitely consider doing:

Distracted driving could have caused crash of Oklahoma school bus

An Oklahoma school principal is alleged to have been using his cellphone when the bus he was driving crashed and left 27 adults and children injured.

Norman Public Schools has been asked to release the video taken inside the bus as the elementary school principal was driving the children to an outing at Sea World in San Antonio last Sept. 29.

What are the most common injuries occurring at work?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), private-industry employers reported 2.8 million nonfatal injuries in the workplace across the country in 2017. That translated to nearly three out of every 100 full-time employees being injured on the job.

Think about it this way. When you go to work at an office, construction site, hospital – or whatever the location is – in Oklahoma each day, there is nearly a 3 percent chance you won't return home the same way you left.

2 Oklahoma teenagers killed when their car is rear-ended

Two Tecumseh, Oklahoma, teenagers killed in a recent crash are being mourned by their friends and family.

The accident occurred on a recent late Saturday afternoon near 45th Street and Aydelotte Avenue in Shawnee, Oklahoma. According to the Shawnee Police Department, a Honda was traveling east on 45th Street, heading toward Aydelotte Avenue, when the driver rear-ended a Ford Mustang.

Lawmakers could better workers' compensation for first responders

In an emergency, the first responders are our heroes.

They run into burning buildings, treat the victims of gunshot wounds or horrific accidents and confront those intent on doing harm, putting their own lives on the line.

Have you suffered from these common medical malpractice errors?

If you have the perception that medical malpractice is an uncommon occurrence that only happens to a few unlucky people, then you need to look at the numbers more closely. One study of comprehensive medical errors estimated that around 250,000 people die each year in the United States due to malpractice. This means that 10 percent of all deaths are due to medical errors which rank medical malpractice as the third leading cause of death in the United States.

Even though doctors and nurses always strive to provide the best care for their patients, mistakes can happen. Unfortunately, these mistakes can end up having life-altering consequences or may lead to death. Besides mistakes, even if you are not treated with the proper care, a medical professional can still be held liable for any hardships, injury or further complications you endure.

Oklahoma City woman killed in auto-pedestrian crash mourned

An Oklahoma City woman was killed recently in a hit-and-run crash, and a driver later was arrested and charged in her death.

The 60-year-old woman was crossing South Pennsylvania Avenue near Southwest 38th Street in the city when she was struck. According to police, she lived a few blocks from a bus stop, and she walked there every morning to take the bus to work.

Injured by a defective product? Here's a product liability primer

As a consumer, when you buy a product, you expect it will work as advertised. The refrigerator will keep things cold. That toy will entertain your child for hours. The over-the-counter medicine you buy will stop that nasty cold from developing.

But what happens when faulty wiring on the fridge leads to a fire and injury to someone in your home? How about when a small part comes dislodged from the toy and your toddler nearly chokes on it? Or what if that medicine has side effects that actually harm — and not help — you?
