Reduced award for medical malpractice recipient

Two weeks ago we wrote a post about a 14-year-old Florida boy and his mother waiting for a bill to pass regarding their $30 million medical malpractice judgment. Late last week, the legislature made a decision and they have passed the bill ordering Lee Memorial Health System to pay $10 million.

Florida nurse charged with abuse and fraud

Making the decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is difficult for many families, especially when family members aren't there every moment of the day to make sure that their loved one is indeed being given the care that they deserve. When a family chooses a nursing home, they fully expect that the home will care for their loved one just as they have done. This is not always the case.

Will Florida medical malpractice case set a precedent?

When you think about pregnancy and child birth, you usually think about the end result -- having a beautiful, healthy baby. But for a Florida woman, her dream of having a child ended when she died of serious complications after giving birth.

Delay continues in medical malpractice payment

Imagine going through a pregnancy, delivering your child and then having that child suffer a birthing injury. Then imagine that you fought the hospital, went to court and were awarded a $30-million judgment, only to have that delayed by the state. This is the case for a Florida woman and her 14-year-old son.

Uncertified plastic surgeons responsible for many surgical errors

In recent years, it has become more and more common for health insurance companies to refuse reimbursement to a doctor or medical facility for a patient procedure. As a result, medical practitioners have seen a loss of profits. Instead of addressing the underlying issues with the health care system that has led us to this point, many surgeons are choosing instead to step out of their field of practice and begin performing more lucrative procedures, such as plastic surgery.
