California man seriously injured in fiery car accident

A fiery collision on a California Highway left one man dead and another seriously injured. Police suspect that a third vehicle might have also been involved in the car accident, but have yet to say more regarding the matter other than that they are still investigating. No criminal charges have been filed, as the driver believed to be responsible for the wreck was killed.

California patients who have been misdiagnosed must live with the aftermath of either not receiving treatment at all or receiving the wrong treatment; additionally, they most-assuredly experience a significant delay in getting the correct care for their illnesses. This type of medical malpractice can wreak havoc on victims' physical and mental well-being.

Essure believed to be defective medical device

Some believe this is simply not enough action for what appears to be a defective medical device.
