Medical Malpractice Archives

Wife died as a result of medical malpractice claims husband

There are certain surgeries that many Florida patients automatically assume are riskier than others. Often, these surgeries involve the brain, spine or internal organs, and they do carry a certain amount of risk for the patient. However, procedures and precautions have been put in place in order to ensure a patient's well-being. Unfortunately, when mistakes are made, they may result in a patient's permanent injury or even death. One man filed a medical malpractice suit after his wife died of septic shock after undergoing surgery. 

Jury awards $109 million in medical malpractice suit

People who are planning to undergo surgery often worry about what complications might possibly arise, like infection or items being left inside the body after surgery. Often, these problems never arise, but there are times when the complications become so severe that they can cause problems that the patient would never have expected. A woman in Florida was recently awarded more than $100 million in a medical malpractice suit filed after surgical complications ultimately resulted in the loss of her hands and feet.

Bad prank results in medical malpractice suit

In an environment where co-workers work long hours together, it isn't unusual for them to become friendly towards one another, as many Florida residents may know. Some may even become comfortable enough to joke around with or pull pranks on one another. Most of the time these jokes and pranks are harmless fun, like moving objects or jump scares. However, there are times when these jokes can go a step too far. One woman has filed a medical malpractice and invasion of privacy lawsuit against the hospital where she once worked because of photos that were taken by a colleague during her surgery.

Recognizing symptoms is an important part of a doctor's job and many Florida residents, and others living across the nation rely on that knowledge in order to remain healthy and to make informed medical decisions. There are cases, however, where doctors miss what may later appear to be an obvious diagnosis. A missed diagnosis can sometimes have disastrous results for the patient and his or her family, and may often lead to the filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
