October 2017 Archives

Opioids and anticoagulants cause many drug-related claims

In recent years, an aging senior population and the increased availability of healthcare options for younger people has resulted in a growing number of Iowa residents receiving medical treatment. However, with more people visiting doctors and receiving prescription medication, the number of medication-related liability claims will likely rise as well.

Disparities still remain in breast cancer survival rates

Although the rates of death from breast cancer have fallen, the American Cancer Society reported that black women were still more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. Breast cancer deaths declined by 39 percent between 1989 and 2015 as more advances in breast cancer treatments were made. However, survival rates between black women and white women started to change in the early 1980s and never improved.

Older cars generally more dangerous than newer ones

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, people who drive older cars are more likely to be killed in an accident than those who drive newer cars. Specifically, those who are driving a car that is 18 years or older have a 71 percent greater chance of being in a fatal accident than someone driving a car that is three years old or newer. Iowa parents of young drivers who are looking for an affordable used vehicle might want to take these statistics into account.

Small cars have much higher crash risks

Small cars are popular in Iowa because of their superior gas mileage. People who are thinking about buying small cars might want to consider more than just that, however. Safety considerations are also important because smaller vehicles present much higher risks of injuries and fatalities than do larger, heavier vehicles.
