A reminder about Missouri's basic speed limit law

Winter is coming to the Kansas City area. With that comes the reality that drivers in Kansas City and in both the Kansas and Missouri suburbs are going to have to deal with wintry driving conditions. Even on fair weather days, there are relatively few hours of daylight. Moreover, snow, ice, fog, wind and other types of weather can make the roads slick and the driving particularly treacherous.

Nurse's aide wins malpractice suit filed on behalf of her son

A nurse's aide who filed a medical malpractice case against the hospital where she gave birth is now poised to receive $50 million, which she says she will use on her son's care. A jury in the woman's home state awarded her $109 million after a trial regarding the boy's birth injury, but the mother at some point made a deal to accept $50 million at the most. While the hospital maintained that it felt its staff had cared for the woman properly, it indicated that it intended to abide by its agreement with the child's mother.

However, the reality is that medical negligence can happen under much more routine circumstances as well. While even medical staff may not think of it as they do it, even simple tasks, like moving a patient, can seriously harm the patient if the staff makes a mistake.

Unusually cold temps led to rush hour mess

The Kansas City area experienced an unusually cold Halloween. In fact, it marked the second coldest October 31 over the city's 130 plus years of existence. Along with the cold weather came icy conditions on the city's roads, which in turn seems to have contributed to a large number of auto accidents.
