What can I do to help prevent misdiagnosis?

It is not uncommon for Floridians to stress when they start feeling seriously ill or a significant amount of pain. Yet, many individuals live with the mantra that ignorance is bliss. This is a dangerous way to live, particularly in an age when medical advances have increased doctors' ability to treat even the most serious medical conditions. With that being said, though, many are still concerned with the frequency that doctors fail to properly diagnose their patients. Fortunately, there are certain steps that a patient can take to help curtail the risk of a missed diagnosis.

Who can I sue for causing a birth injury?

Children are amongst the most vulnerable members of the human population. Unable to defend themselves, these individuals have to rely on the care of others in order to remain free from harm. Though most parents are able to do this over the course of time, even parents can lose control of their child's safety at the time of birth. In these instances, a baby's well-being is left to doctors and nurses who, we all hope, are adequately trained, experienced, and alert. Unfortunately, though, this is not always the case.

What are some causes of wrong-site surgeries?

Medical advances have left patients with more options than ever before. Though some illnesses and conditions are now treatable via non-invasive means, others still require invasive operations. Those who have had to undergo surgery know just how nerve-wracking it can be. A patient can have concerns about the operation's success rate and the likelihood that an organ or artery will be inadvertently nicked. One concern that patients often fail to recognize is the very real possibility of a wrong-site surgery.

Our firm takes pride in its record with hospital negligence

Last week on the blog we discussed a case where our firm was able to recover $750,000 on behalf of the estate of a man who died when he was improperly monitored while in the hospital. This type of improper monitoring or mistake may be better known to some as hospital negligence. Recovering damages like this can be important for medical malpractice victims and their families. Not only can this compensation help cover medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages, but it can also serve as a strong reprimand to those who act negligently while caring for others.
