In many states, texting while you are operating a motor vehicle is not only illegal but a crime too. Even though there are rules set in place warning against it, using a phone or texting while driving is something that many people still choose to do, regardless of the risk.

Errors happen frequently, some more often than others. Mistakes do not always equate to malpractice. Neither does a death or an injury or bad result a lawsuit make. Even if patients or family are not happy with the outcome of what happens, legally, malpractice in the medical field is defined as involving negligence on the part of one or [...]
