Widow files medical malpractice lawsuit alleging negligence

Medical professionals go through several years of training in order to prepare them for treating a wide variety of illnesses and injuries. Patients across the country, including Florida, trust that these professionals have completed this training and will use what they have learned to the best of their abilities. However, there are times when medical staff attempt to perform procedures that they have not been properly trained for or they fail to perform a procedure to the standard that it should be performed, and the result may be a medical malpractice lawsuit. 

Daycare fails to explain the severity of child's personal injury

There are parents all across the country who trust daycare centers with their children every day. These facilities are expected to care for these children and treat any injuries that may occur while they are there. Most of the time, children are unlikely to suffer serious injuries while in the care of these centers, but if they are, then parents usually expect appropriate actions to be taken by the center staff. One Florida mother is furious with the center that was in charge of her daughter's care after the center staff failed to inform her of the full extent of her child's personal injury and failed to have the injury properly treated. 

Drinking while stopped versus drunk driving

Inebriated individuals are sometimes unable to properly think through a situation, which can sometimes lead to trouble. Actions that make sense to a drunk individual may not, in fact, be a good idea to a sober individual. A man was arrested for drunk driving in Florida, but he claimed that he was not drinking and driving because he was only drinking when the car was stopped. 

$135 million awarded in medical malpractice case

Many Florida residents may know someone who has undergone treatment for a serious medical condition. These treatments are sometimes risky and could permanently injure the patient if something goes wrong. A teenage girl was recently awarded $135 million dollars in a medical malpractice case after a medical treatment resulted in long-term health problems. 

When others take risks with their personal watercrafts

Among the most dangerous sentences you may hear while on the water in Panama City is, "Can I borrow your PWC?" Sure, you can perfectly understand someone asking to borrow a personal watercraft, especially after seeing how much fun they are. However, passing your keys to someone who has no training or experience or who is too young to effectively handle the craft is a mistake than can lead to tragedy.

Driver fatigue suspected in crash resulting in personal injury

There are a wide variety of hazards on the road that may cause an accident. Some of these accidents have an outside cause, such as poor weather conditions, and others are caused by other drivers. Even a small mistake can cause a serious crash. For example, many people are guilty of driving while tired. Often, drivers are able to stay awake and complete their trips with few problems, but sometimes, the driver is overwhelmed by his or her exhaustion, which can result in a crash causing personal injury, as was the case in Florida.
