Why many drivers are uninsured

Having auto insurance is required in nearly all states, Massachusetts included. Thus, it can be frustrating when you are hit and/or injured by another driver and need her or his insurance company to help with your medical recovery and other costs--except the other driver does not have an insurance company at all. In fact, about 13 percent of drivers in 2014 may have been uninsured. It is so much a "given" that many drivers will be uninsured that states require insured drivers to protect against their uninsured counterparts. Massachusetts requires coverage of at least $20,000 per person and $40,000 per accident for bodily injuries caused by an uninsured auto.

Preventing bicycle accidents

Bicycles account for about 1 percent of all trips taken on the road, but cyclists face a much higher threat of death than other motorists. The Centers for Disease Control reports that in 2015, in the United States, over 1,000 bicyclists died and almost 467,000 people were injured in a bike ride.

Summer may bring increased risk of dog bites

When summer comes, you may be eager to hit the pool or visit the park. You will not be the only one looking to enjoy warmer weather. Many dog owners, too, will be taking their canines out to frolic and run free. According to ABC News, summer is the time when kids are most at risk of being bitten by a dog. Kids and adults alike, though, can be victimized by dogs that are simply too aggressive.

Could you have prevented your adverse drug reaction?

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) addressed attendees of the Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit this year, outlining the common errors made by health care workers as reported to federal agencies. Adverse drug events, which are “injuries resulting from a medical intervention to a drug,” are one of the most prevalent medical errors.
