Doctor faces claims of surgical medical malpractice

Individuals go to the hospital because they have a medical condition that they themselves cannot diagnose and treat. For this reason, patients tend to rely on doctors' years of training and expertise when deciding what treatment is in their best interest. These treatments often include surgeries. Yet, sometimes doctors give patients the wrong treatment, even performing unneeded operations. When this happens, medical malpractice has occurred.

Nursing home death a result of negligence

Nursing homes exist to give the elderly the attention and care families are unable to provide. Unfortunately, all too often these institutions fail to live up to expectations by failing to perform their duties. When nursing home neglect like this occurs, serious injuries or death can result. A recent case illustrates the tragedy of nursing home neglect, and Miami residents should take note.

Doctor sued for failure to diagnose cancer

Doctors often recommend that individuals of a certain age receive particular check-ups and screenings. Amongst these screenings are those that search for cancer. Many times, when detected early, cancer can be treated quickly and efficiently. Yet, if a doctor misses a diagnosis, the result can be tragic, and, in some cases deadly. These instances of a missed diagnosis typically constitute medical malpractice and compensation can be recovered.

Nursing home neglect leads to resident's death

Many times when families are unable to take care of their elderly loved ones, they place the elderly one in a nursing home where she can receive the constant care and attention she needs. Most of these institutions live up to their duties. Sadly, though, some of these homes fail. These shortcomings can result in bedsores, malnutrition, or a nursing home fall.
