A poignant recent example of the latter occurred in various Phoenix VA Health Care System facilities. It is estimated that as many as 40 veterans may have died due to a delay in providing them with care. There are millions of records missing, and the medical system is 250,000 pages behind. This may become a national scandal, with incidents also occurring at VA facilities in Miami, Atlanta, and Pittsburgh, among others. If it can be proved that the deaths of these veterans occurred due to medical malpractice or negligence, it provides an example of a typical wrongful death
Does your parent or older sibling that can drive, focus on the road or no? Many people think that distracted driving is not that bad of a problem, but it is worse than people think. Distracted driving means that a person is doing something that is getting their attention off the road. According to the article NHTSA in 2015 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 people were injured, just from distracted driving. That is like 300 more people died in 2015 then in 2014.
In the United States alone, more than 36 million people abuse illegal substances, however, most of these are not caused by the prescription of opioids. A drug abuse crisis is overtaking the U.S. Drug abuse kills over 200,000 people worldwide each year, although only .002 percent of these deaths are caused by the prescription of opioids. 117 million people suffer from a chronic illness, many of which need the prescription of opioids to function on a daily basis. Even though many people abuse them, doctors should not stop prescribing opioids because they are necessary for many people to function, most people who abuse them have had problems with other substances, and most opioid-related deaths do not come from doctor prescribed pills. First, they are necessary for many people to function.
At these parties too many things happen drugs, drinking, rape, and many more bad decision-making. Most of the deaths come from fraternity hazing.And all of these things end with 200 or more deaths every year. The next problem is the biggest problem on fraternities and sororities. There is little to no supervision. Yeah these students are grown, they make their own
Drunk driving, also known as driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, is a serious problem that continuous to take thousands of deaths each year. Too many lives have been lost due to drunk driving. It is estimated that more than 10,000 young people in the United States are killed and 40,000 are injured in car accidents when alcohol involved.  Every two minutes, someone is injured because of this entirely preventable crime.  A death from drunk driving does not only affect the victim but it affects everyone around them such as family and friends.
But also, hazing can be much more severe such as including alcohol and drinking games which can ultimately lead to hazing being murder. After researching for current hazing data, according to stophazing.org, more than half of college students who participate in clubs and organizations experience hazing, and 25%, students believed that the supervisor was aware the hazing was occuring. These statistics prove to be very shocking and I do not believe that what is being done to prevent hazing is effective enough to prevent the emotions and feelings that arise when hazing is taken to the most severe form, taking a life. Mrs. Rae Ann Gruver, mother to Max Gruver a student at Louisiana State University who was hazed to death last semester in September was asked if she thinks Max’s death was a murder and responded with “Yes, I believe so.” In his case, ten people were charged with hazing charges and one suspect facing a charge of negligent homicide. Having been forced to participate in a drinking game called Bible Study, Max was forced to drink 190 proof liquor at a faster rate than any of the other pledges and a series of other activities which were more severe than others had to go
Occurring but yes it does still happen sometime but it’s usually at fraternities and athletic sports like football,soccer,volleyball,tennis,and basketball. Hazing and bullying are commonly mistaken because the both seem the same because they both involve mental damage and. Physical but hazing is much worst than bullying because be hazed is like having your humanity taken from you when bullying doesn’t cause things like causing long-lasting damage such as scars or traumatization hazing happens when a person who has no power feel the need to have power over other and yes you could call this person power hungry more than 250,000 people endure hazing to join a athletic team some people may see hazing as a rite of passage and hazers think of it as a rite of passage for a new hazer or “member” those who have experienced hazing can probably tell you that they felt that it was one of the most traumatic moments in there life and they have post-stress syndrome which is a big word that means they become stressed
First off sports can cause concussions, nearly 300,000 concussions occur a year. Second nearly 25% of people who get concussions are not given medical assistance. Lastly sports injuries are the most common way of getting a concussion. (Sources Paul Hornung Sues the Helmet Maker Riddell Over Concussionshttp://mrshatzi.com/files/paul-hornung-sues.pdf Belson July 7th 2016) Another reason competitive sports are not good for you is because you can get injured not just from concussions but serious problems, you know a hockey player almost got decapitated in a hockey game cnrjnxn december 9th 2006 video file from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWatxWBnKVw. For example over 3.5 million injuries occur in sports every year which can cause less participation for the team.
Did you know that 300 million people worldwide are affected by depression and depression could lead to suicide? Currently, about 800,000 people die every year to suicide and there is not enough help for all of these people who are suffering from depression and taking their lives. Many people think that depression isn’t as big of a problem compared to some other diseases. However, depression can lead to many other types of problems that can affect your body and your mental health. It also can lead to suicide, the second leading cause of death.
This is a significant issue which leads to wasted talent, in addition to the exploitation of these players. Per The Guardian, "There are an estimated 500 illegal football academies operating in Accra alone. Thousands more are spread across Ghana. Many are run by the roadside; most have no proper training facilities." The aforementioned statement is an eye-opener to the reality of football in Ghana, where millions of skillful teens will not have an opportunity at a decent football league to improve and develop their abilities and technique.
