We trust our doctors to inform us if we have a medical problem. Unfortunately, we may not always get the correct information about our health. Some Connecticut patients are given a misdiagnosis or a missed diagnosis. These are not the same, yet they both inaccurately describe a person’s condition and could lead to tragic consequences. Very Well Health distinguishes the two from each other and explains how they work.
Perhaps you are waiting for the light to change when another driver plows into the back of your car. The rear-end collision happens at low speed, but you still suffer quite a jolt.
Drivers in Connecticut, and in many other states across the nation, are prohibited from using a hand-held cellphone while behind the wheel. These laws were put in place in an attempt to minimize the number of people who are seriously injured and killed in distracted driving car accidents each year in the U.S. Hands-free cellphones, however, are not prohibited and drivers can legally use these devices as they navigate around city streets. The problem lies in the fact that even hands-free cellphones may not be safe for drivers to use, as they cause a significant amount of cognitive distraction.
