Medical malpractice case results in multi-million dollar award

People in North Carolina go to the emergency room with the expectation of a certain standard of care. While most patients accept that medical care providers are not miracle workers, they do expect that these workers will do everything reasonably expected to ensure their current and future well-being, including reporting medical problems to their physician. In a recent medical malpractice lawsuit, one man claims that a nurse's failure to act resulted in his permanent disability.

Woman claims failure to refer caused long-term health problems

Surgery is performed for many different reasons, under many different circumstances. Sometimes emergency surgery is necessary in order to save a life. At other times, surgery is performed to improve the quality of a person's life or to improve his or her perceptions of him or herself. Regardless of the reason, those in North Carolina who have undergone surgery expect that a certain standard of care be met during and after the procedure. One woman claims that a doctor's failure to refer her to a wound specialist after undergoing elective surgery has led to long-term health problems, as well as the loss of her business.

Negligence at North Carolina hospital may lead to claims

To be informed that the disregard of sterilization procedures in a hospital may have exposed an individual to a non-curable brain disorder would naturally cause an extremely high amount of stress. To have to live with the fear that the disorder may surface at any time could be unbearable for most. Even if the North Carolina hospital states that the risk caused by their negligence is very low, nobody should have to live with that constant concern.

Alleged medical malpractice leads to heart attack

Medical professionals in North Carolina are often well-trained and work long hours to ensure that their patients receive the best possible medical care. However, some doctors make mistakes, and while all humans make mistakes, errors on the part of medical professionals can have devastating, long-term consequences for their patients. When these errors occur, affected patients have the option of seeking legal recourse. One man has recently filed a medical malpractice case after he claims a doctor's inaction led to his permanent disability.

Poor sanitation procedures could cause health problems

A century ago, there was little information available about the importance of properly sanitizing medical equipment. As a result, medical equipment was not properly cleaned and hands were not always washed. Thankfully, medical professionals in North Carolina and across the country are aware of this important safeguard to patient health. However, in a northwestern state, one hospital's failure to properly train its technicians on how to properly clean medical equipment could ultimately lead to health problems for over a hundred former patients.

Parents allege baby died due to birth injuries

There have been several stories in the news in recent years about the climbing C-section rate in this country. According to these news stories, more people are opting to have C-sections even though many claim there is increased risk to the mother and baby as well as a more difficult recovery. However, it is likely that many lives in North Carolina have been saved by the procedure. Nevertheless, one family claims that their infant daughter died from birth injuries received as a result of one doctor's attempt to deliver a baby naturally, through the use of forceps, instead of performing the C-section the mother requested.

Medical malpractice suit filed against North Carolina hospital

Thanks to advances of medicine over the last 100 years, some of the risks associated with labor and delivery have been significantly reduced. Unfortunately, the risks have not been completely eliminated. While nature often has a role to play in death or injury at birth, the care a woman and child receive during the birth process can also have a significant impact on the outcome of a delivery. In a recent medical malpractice lawsuit, one woman claims that the inadequate care she received in a North Carolina medical facility ultimately lead to the death of her baby.

VA medical malpractice payments create questions

The media has covered the treatment of American soldiers extensively lately. For example, a major topic of conversation has been the ability of veterans to obtain jobs after they exit the military. However, the quality of healthcare provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has become a focal point. Specifically, some people question the number of medical malpractice suits against the healthcare organization. Some would have Americans believe that veterans in North Carolina and across the country are receiving substandard medical care based on the number of claims filed and the amount of money paid to settle them.

North Carolina lawsuit alleges medical malpractice

A parent's worst nightmare is a serious injury sustained by one of their children that could lead to their child's death. When a child is injured, parents trust that medical professionals will provide the best medical care possible and take every possible course of action to save their child's life. Unfortunately, one set of parents in North Carolina allege that the care provided to their son after a skateboarding accident was well below the accepted standard and ultimately led to his death. They have recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Jury agrees brain damage resulted from medical malpractice

There is nothing more terrifying for a North Carolina parent than to realize that their child is seriously ill. In such a case, parents expect that their child's primary physician can determine when a child's symptoms warrant a referral to a specialist. One family claims that their daughter's current condition is a result of medical malpractice and could have been prevented if her pediatrician had referred her to a pediatric cardiologist. A jury recently agreed and rendered a multi-million dollar verdict as a result.
